Biographical Sketch

Richard Mosher was born April 24, 1949, in Mussoorie, India, the son of missionary parents. He lived in a number of different countries before coming to the United states, where he held a variety of jobs before becoming a free lance writer. He says he uses his varied experiences as realistic background for his stories, but does not base his plots or characters directly on them. Biographical Source Something About the Author, vol. 120
