Long Biography

The Childhood of Richard Lowe

An Air Force brat, Richard Lowe was born in a small community in Northern California, near where his father was stationed. His mother, Valerie, often spoke of the good times she had at the Nut Tree Restaurant, eating dates and drinking sodapop. Soon they moved down to San Bernardino, in Southern California near Norton Air Force Base, where Richard spent his childhood.

Richard has many memories of his young life in that dry and dusty city, sheltering from the heat in the treehouse that he and his father built together. On a fateful day in 1967, Richard was dragged into a library, kicking and screaming, by his mother. She was determined that he needed to experience a library. The screaming stopped as soon as a kindly librarian bribed, um, handed out a cookie, and after that took the now happy child on a tour of the whole building. Richard fell in love with the librarian, and was forever after hooked on books. Before long he was checking out a dozen or more each week, and buying every available book he could from the Scholastic Book Program.

The years went by, and one day Richard stumbled across a book carefully stored in a box that his grandmother had left with the family for safekeeping. The book was Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. After reading that adult level masterpiece in a weekend, Richard discovered other authors, including Isaac Asimov. At that time Richard decided he was going to be “an author” (whatever that meant) when he grew up.

Unfortunately, life got in the way of his dreams. The family moved to Lake Arrowhead where his parents opened an art gallery in Blue Jay Village. Later, they moved to a larger store in Lake Arrowhead Village, where the sold arts and crafts. During high school at Rim of the World High, Richard wrote his first story, which was never published. The pressure of high school, college, and after that, a full time job, got in the way of the dream.

Computer Career and Family

Richard Lowe Jr is a bestselling author who has published 63 books, ghostwritten 20 books, and produced several hundred articles for blogs and publications. He is the owner and senior writer of The Writing King, which provides services such as ghostwriting, book coaching, WordPress implementation, blogging and copywriting. Richard is also a Senior LinkedIn Branding Specialist and has written over 150 LinkedIn profiles.

While in his second year in college, Richard took a computer class to fill out his schedule. Up until that point, his intention was to become a geologist – his other passion. The teacher, along with two partners, started a company called Software Techniques. Within a year, Richard was promoted to Vice President of Consulting  and he spent the next 33 years working with computers. Finally, he found a home at Trader Joe’s as the Director of Technical Services and Computer Operations. During his twenty-year tenure at that esteemed company, he virtualized all the corporate computer systems, managed the team responsible for operating  computer security and preparing for the possibility of disaster.

At the same time Richard accepted his position at Trader Joe’s, he married a beautiful Guatemalan lady named Claudia. They were married for a little over 12 years, until she passed away from lung disease. In grief, Richard took up photography and traveled the United States photographing nature, national parks, renaissance festivals and belly dance shows. Within 8 years he had taken almost one million photos and had made friends with over 1,200 dancers, festival participants and models. He is well known in the Renaissance Festival and Belly Dance communities, having photographed well over a thousand dance events and hundreds of festivals. For several years, he photographed the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena, California.

Bestselling Author Richard Lowe

After spending over 33 years in the computer and information technology industry, Richard decided it was time to take an early retirement to finally pursue his childhood dream of becoming a professional writer and published author. He decided to move from California and too up residence in Florida. He quickly became employed by a ghostwriting company, wrote a few books, then left to form his own business.

Richard has written hundreds of articles for the web and blogs, and actively works as a professional ghostwriter. In that role, he has completed books on a wide variety of subjects including memoirs, business volumes, and novels. Because of his in-depth background in software management and computer security, Richard has ghostwritten a number of major books in those areas.

Additionally, Richard has published books of his own. His first two volumes, Safe Computing is Like Safe Sex and Real World Survival Tips and Survival Guide, respectively touch on the subjects of computer security and how to survive emergencies and disasters. Richard has also written and published a series of short eBooks on the aspects of freelance writing, including blogging and ghostwriting. His book, Focus on LinkedIn,became an Amazon bestseller.

Richard is currently working on a large number of short Kindle eBooks on a wide variety of subjects. Beginning in 2017, he will publish the first of a ten volume series of Science Fiction novels.

One of Richard’s passions is to use the power of words to educate people on human rights. He believes the world will be a better place when human beings are treated with the full respect and dignity they are due.

Sample Interview Questions for Richard Lowe

What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer?

The first thing to do is to set aside time each day that is writing time. It doesn’t matter whether that’s an hour a day or six hours or whatever you’re comfortable with. Just make it clear to everyone around you, including your family, that’s the time you write.Make sure you have the phone, television, and any other distractions turned off or shut down. Then during that time, do your writing. If you get writers block, then either power through it or write something else for a while. Sometimes alternating between two or three different manuscripts is a way to conquer writer’s block.The whole point is you have to do it. You have to write. That’s the whole point of being a writer.As far as publishing goes, there are any number of alternatives. I decided to self-publish my first few books to help support my ghostwriting business, and because it’s a simpler route to take. I am working on several novels, and I expect to send those out on the more traditional publishing route. I need to find an agent who will shop them around the various publishers.

What is your writing routine?

I write for eight hours every day. I have a timer that is set for forty-five minutes. While that is counting down, I speak into dictation software. I typically write about two thousand words in that forty-five minute time.Once the timer goes off, I take a break. Typically I’ll do forty-five minutes of writing followed by a fifteen-minute break three times, then stopped for lunch. I’ll repeat that routine in the afternoon through dinner. Finally, I’ll do a couple more before going to bed.I use that fifteen-minute break between writing sessions to stretch, exercise, get a drink of water, or just stand outside and stare into space. The idea is to get away from the computer screen and do something different.

Did you like reading when you were a child?

I was a voracious reader as a child. My first science fiction book was Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein. That’s a tough read for a seven-year-old, and some of the concepts certainly are a bit adult in nature, but it gave me a new viewpoint on life that I’d never considered before. After that, I was hooked on science fiction and fantasy.One of my fondest memories was visiting the library and checking out half a dozen books as part of the reading program. Each book earned a sticker, and I always had a full page of stickers and then moved on to the next contest.
