Pen Name: Rick Buda
Born: 1950 in Chicago, IL
Born and raised in Chicago, Rick moved his family to the South western Suburbs in 1986. He has always been a voracious reader and it seemed likely there was a book to be written. WolfPointe came about as he was searching for a "hook" to a story that he was writing about two custom home builders. Set in Suburban Chicago, it needed life, a back-story, so to speak. It was during this search that he found a great mystery as well as a memorable protagonist.
