Paul Richmond; Artist // Activist // Storyteller
I have been extraordinarily lucky to have, from almost the very beginning, covers done for me by the wonderful Paul Richmond. I was actually a fan before I knew he even did covers. Not only is he incredibly talented, but he is an amazingly sweet man, and a humanitarian as well. He is one of the co-founders of the You Will Rise Project, an organization that empowers those who have experienced bullying to speak out creatively through the language, visual, and performing arts.
Many original photos at this site were taken by the remarkable Dave Suntown. I stumbled on him on Facebook one day and boy am I glad I did. Dave’s photography ranges from the sweet and romantic to the classic to the very erotic. And his work is beginning to appear on my covers. I’m so proud to share his work on those covers and here on my blog as well.
The photgraph for my Holiday Stories page is by Mark Graf from the website morgueFile.
