Robert Ricks was born August 29th, 1971 on a US Army base in Seoul Korea.
He was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and moved to Hawaii.
While in Hawaii he became a voracious reader of Fantasy and Sci-Fi with early favorites being the Nine Princes in Amber series by Roger Zelazny as well as the Elric saga by Michael Moorcock.
As a senior in High school, he wrote his first novel entitled “The GodKill” (which has yet to be published.) He would start and stop other stories over the next few decades.
To date he has over fifty-five novels in various stages of development (The Magic Really Suck series, The Convergence Series, The Sordid Adventures of Farook Fantook and Jizzy J Series, Angelic Revelations, Infernal Justice, The POET, The Harbinger, Asian Vampire Kitan, Choices, Tatted Soul, Shattered Saint, Brother’s Keeper and Beneath the Park to name just a few).
Ricks has earned his living as a designer building websites, and marketing material. He created and developed and self-published a CCG (Collectible Card Game) entitled the STREET WARriorS in 2004.
He began writing again full force mid-2009 after having a series of surreal dreams that wouldn’t leave him alone (truth be told he has dreams more now than then). He decided to write CONVERGENCE 2012.
After self-publishing the Convergence 2012, he took a break from writing until 2017 when again a set of dreams pulled him back into writing. He challenged himself to write a full trilogy and completed the trilogy in 5 months in raw format and then final edits two months later.
He is married and has three children and a dog. He currently lives in Utah.
