T. A. Richards or more specifically Terry Allen Richards II, was born in Hartford, CT and graduated from Rockville High School of Vernon, CT. Recently retired from the US Army, Terry is a permanently disabled veteran and very proud to be an American. He meets his physical challenges head on and uses the sport of disabled bodybuilding to stay out of a wheelchair. In 2003 Terry graduated from Southern California Seminary and has used this education as both a private educator and a US Army Chaplain. His writing career began in high school with a multitude of short stories and has since grown to include graphic novels, reflective and inspirational articles and almost a dozen novels. Ultimately his goal is to start his own production company where the world will see his many creative visions come to life on the 'big screen.'
