Richard L. Cederberg began creating in his teens, first as a classical trumpet player, then as a guitarist and lyricist, and then as a writer of poetry and short-stories. He is presently an internationally published poet and has authored four books. As a novelist, his primary motivations integrate Jules Verne, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Lewis Stevenson, C.S. Lewis and a host of other gifted writers into a uniquely crafted compelling blend of adventure, mystery, historical fiction, and spirituality.
