Rich's writing borrows from the unique (scandalous, criminal or satirical) environments of Florida. A recent project -inspired by heists committed during hurricanes- was optioned by 20th Century Fox and published as "Storm Crashers," the gold winner as Best Popular Fiction in the Florida Book Awards.
On his verbal side, Rich enjoys speaking about creative crimes. He has presented at the FBI's InfraGard Counterterrorism seminars and on panels at writing conferences in Las Vegas dedicated to accuracy in crime writing. He is the recipient of the FBI's Exceptional Service in the Public Interest Award.
From the other side of his brain, Rich's art and photography have been seen in print, in Forbes Travel magazine and exhibited in Ft. Lauderdale's Art Guild. He has performed stand-up comedy which explains his odd mix of suspense and laughs.
He and his family are regular visitors to any coast with sufficient hammocks and blenders.
