About Me:
I am the author of over thirty fantasy and horror novels, including a number set in the Forgotten Realms universe. My short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. I have recently expanded my professional activities to include electronic self-publishing. You can find my work on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, iTunes, etc.

I'm a resident of the Tampa Bay area, the setting for many of my horror stores, and spend much of my leisure time fencing and playing poker. I'm rleebyers on Facebook and @rleebyers on Twitter.

Thank you for reaching out but my recently released novel, The Reluctant Hunter, seems like such an unlikely area of interest for someone who write horror stories, except that the horrors in my novel about the Bosnian War are real horrors hard to believe and yet based on fact.  I wish you luck in your writing and your fencing.  I did a little at Penn.  The instructor had been the fencing coach for the US Olympic team.  It was a short-lived but memorable experience for me.  Joel

As one of my friends, I would like to invite you to my blog at to vote for the book cover of my upcoming novel The Scent of a Soul. The three book cover finalists are on display for everyone to view and vote on; I would love your shared opinion, and hope to see you there. Thanks!

Richard ...

It's good to be wanted, and thank you. I won't be doing much around here until later in the month, after which I definitely hope to. And again: thanks.

I just finished the Q Word and Other Stories. It was the first of your work that I read and will not be the last. I look forward to enjoying the range of your work. A fascinating read for sure. My compliments on your fierce imagination. I believe I've found a new favorite author.
