My mystery eBooks are now available at Amazon as Kindle Elektrik Books. The Vic Bengston Investigation novels are available in trade paperback from Amazon, my website, and select Colorado independent bookstores, including the Tattered Cover.
These include WATER: A Vic Bengston Investigation, VOTE: A Vic Bengston Investigation, and Who Killed Porkchop? A Key West Mystery (a novella).
They are also available as eBooks from public libraries.
The next book in the Bengston series – FRACK: A Vic Bengston Investigation – will be published in late 2016.
I am available about any time for book club presentations, art club presentations (yes, I have a writing and art talk) and other groups in person, by phone, or via Skype.

I am a huge fan of H.D., as we used to call him around those chilly nighttime campfires outside his cabin next to Walden Pond. I have read him in the past and I re-read his works today, as they remain relevant. However, I have neither written nor edited any books about Thoreau. That was done by Richard J. Schneider, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of English at Wartburg College in Waverly, IA.
Prof. Schneider and I enjoy the same name. Many of the robots that run the book publishing world, like Amazon and Barnes & Noble, list both my works of fiction and Prof. Schneider’s scholarly work on Thoreau on the same page. I have attempted to get the two of us pulled apart, but have you ever spent much time trying to talk to or reason with a robot? It is not pretty.
Some have suggested that I change my byline, maybe to Richard Schneider or Dick Schneider. Well, since I began writing for UPI in 1969, my byline has been Richard J. Schneider. I am not about to change it now. I suspect Prof. Schneider is as stubborn as I. So the world will just have to sort it out on its own.
