Rich Thayer was born and raised in northwest Ohio. In high school, he developed a passion for writing, and in college, a passion for computers. He earned a BS degree in computer science at Bowling Green State University, then moved to Silicon Valley where he wrote technical manuals and managed technical writing departments. Retired from technical writing, he now writes fiction.
Rich is a father of two and grandfather of three. He enjoys technology, hiking and nature, local history, concerts and music (listening, not playing), gardening, and line dancing. His most satisfying activity, though, is spending time with his family.
Rich and his wife, Glenda, live in northern California.
