About the Author, Richard King
Richard King’s long career in school and church music began when he was selected for Texas All- State Choir in 1957. He was awarded bachelor and master’s degrees in Music Education (from what is now University of North Texas) after which he taught public school vocal music for eight years.
In 1972, Richard entered full-time church music and youth ministries, which he had done part-time since college days. He continues in part-time music ministry.. After seventeen years, Richard returned to teaching, this time moving into gifted and talented (GT) education. Eventually, he became the coordinator for the GT program in the Trinity, TX ISD for six years.
During the remaining years of Richard's teaching career, he taught GT English and began to write.
His experiences with junior high and high school young people and his twenty-nine-year career in youth work in churches gave him the material he needed for his characters.
During the youth ministry years, Richard took his young people on mission trips to several states. He went to Brazil and Mexico as a participant in other mission endeavors, giving him a background of knowledge for his writing.
In 2005, he retired from public school only to begin teaching in the Angelina College Extension Department, which he currently enjoys. Other retirement benefits are: writing, golfing, and visiting his eight grandchildren, three of whom live in Japan, and trying to corral his two cats, Rocky and Patches.
He also spends time as pianist in his local church as well as accompanying band and choir soloists in their UIL solo and ensemble competitions each year, something he has done for over thirty-five years.
