Richard W. Browne

Bio: Richard W. Browne spent over a quarter century working for chemical, utility, pharmaceutical, banking and start-up firms. Browne has drawn on his experience as director of a utility’s oil and gas exploration subsidiary for the plot of A Corpse Is a Corpse.

He has filled many file cabinets with annual reports, SEC 10-K reports, employee and product brochures, newsletters and proposals. “The SEC should name a storeroom after me, I’ve filed so many papers with them,” he says. He’s now writing fiction on a full-time basis and intends to make it his final career.

His short stories The Trouble With Whitcombe and The Monocle in the Treacle, appeared in Red Herring Mystery Magazine. Science fiction short stories appear in Genre Sampler and Onynx magazines. The Treasure Chest and The Police Writer have published several of his “writing about writing” articles.

A Corpse Is a Corpse was a finalist in the Malice Domestic competition several years ago, but has only now found a publisher at Double Dragon. Those who follow the Enron scandal in the news, will enjoy this tale of chicanery in the energy industry.

Both of his novels are set in Richmond, Virginia where he lives with his wife and daughter.

Sitting in the chair opposite the body, he stretched out one leg in deference to the dress sword at his side.
