Full Name: John Richard Yancey
Born: Miami FL
Occupation: Writer


Rick is a native Floridian and a graduate of Roosevelt University in Chicago. He earned a B.A. in English which he put to use as a field officer for the Internal Revenue Service. Inspired and encouraged by his wife, he decided his degree might also be useful in writing books and in 2004 he began writing full-time.

Since then he has launched two critically acclaimed series: The Extraordinary Adventure of Alfred Kropp, for young readers, and The Highly Effective Detective, for adults. Both books are set in Knoxville Tennessee, where Rick lived for ten years before returning to Florida.
