Hello readers!

Filed under: Uncategorized — ambrose44 @ 3:52 am
My name is Ambrose Richardson.  Welcome to this forum, which is dedicated to those of you who’ve enjoyed my writing.  I plan to use this blog as an easy way to communicate with you, and learn your thoughts and reactions to my books.  At the time of this first-ever post, I have two books published and e-published.  The first is Crossing the Borderline, the second is Brutal Devotion, and a third is now in process (working title: Reflections).  The books feature my alter-ego as the protagonist, psychologist Whittier Brand, along with a supporting cast of Anna Malowski (Whit’s wife, a freshly-minted lawyer), Saul Raumund (his best friend, ex-Chicago cop), and a few others who populate his life in the small town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  That’s where I live, in real life.

But wait: If you’re reading this, you probably already know all of that.

You’ve also picked up that I like to take on contemporary issues in my novels, issues that should be of concern to all of us.  That’s important to me.  While I have great respect for the many talented writers who produce the galvanizing mysteries and thrillers we all like to read into the night, I rarely find one that does more than entertain.  I’m trying to hit the entertainment part hard, but also add an important dimension to my writing, something more than simply holding you in suspense as the plot unfolds.  That dimension is to awaken your interest in a social problem in our society, and provoke a bit more concern about it than you may have had before.

That’s my cabin, below, right after a good snowstorm last winter.  Later is not shown, must have been too hot for him that day.  Those of you who read Brutal Devotion will recall how Elijah Garmish tried to torch the place one Spring night.   Also below is a panorama of Lincoln Avenue, the main street of Steamboat Springs.  It may give you an idea of our little town, if you’ve never been here.  By the way, my psychotherapy office is along the left side, two blocks down.
