Richard Cass grew up in Boston in the Sixties, lived through the bussing years, went to high school at Boston Latin, the oldest public school in the country. After graduating from Colby College, he worked in bars and restaurants in central and coastal Maine for years before moving to Washington, D.C., where he established a career as a technical writer.
He’s had the extraordinary good fortune to study with some superb writers and teachers, including but not limited to: Ernest Hebert, Thomas Williams Jr., Ursula K. LeGuin, and Debra Magpie Earling.
In 2005, he published a collection of short stories entitled Gleam of Bone. And in 2016, Five Star Publishing brought out the first published Elder Darrow mystery Solo Act, the story of an alcoholic who buys a dive bar in Boston hoping to turn it into a jazz nightspot and in the process, keep himself sober. The prequel to Solo Act, In Solo Time, will appear in late 2017.
Come meet Richard Cass and dozens of additional authors at this year's Books in Boothbay, coming on July 8!
