About the Author
Richard DeVall dropped out of high school to see the world. He made his way to Florida, California, and Connecticut, to name a few places. Along the way, at the age of 18 he was convicted of possession of $5 worth of marijuana and spent 5 months in jail. There he took a long look at his life and read, read, and read some more. He dove into all kinds of books, science fiction, suspense, travel, and even technical manuals. It put a bug in him to one day write.
His books are not all in the same genres. Neither is his mind. He met writers, after his first book, Old Letters and New Demons. The majority of those writers were women and they said romance is where the money is. He thought about that as he wrote a revenge thriller, Pablo’s Apprentice and found some success. Next he wrote science fiction. Minor success, it didn’t run away and not come home like he used to do.
Then he experienced the most success to date with The Hypnotist’s Assistant. People of all ages liked it. It had something for everyone, social commentary, addiction, death, spirituality, and love. If you write him on Facebook in messenger he will – until he runs out – send you a link and a special number to a free download in audible for that book.
He’s said the critics are few and they don’t bother him for too long. He lives for a good review, it doesn’t need to be too long or wordy.
