Richard Rowe

If you’ve never seen this name before, it isn’t for lack of sheer volume. Since he began writing professionally in 2009, Richard’s stuffed the web with approximately a million words a year on subjects ranging from automotive tech to the environment, from economics to politics. In terms of word count, that’s the King James Bible about seven times over, the entire Lord of the Rings series nine times over, and every issue of Hot Rod Magazine since 1992. Or, Rowling’s Harry Potter series, times the number of female Kardashians, probably including Bruce Jenner. And he still can’t figure out how to use pronouns when writing about himself in third person (Richard, not Bruce Jenner). His role models include Benjamin Franklin, Hannibal Barca and Courtney Love.
