When Richard was a child, he was introduced to the Catholic religion and grew up with some measure of awareness of a supreme being called God. At the age of seventeen he became born again and was led by God's Holy Spirit to increase in the knowledge of His Word, wherein he dismissed religion for a personal walk and relationship with God for life. Richard spent some time at the Caribbean Mission Bible School where Dr. Leo and Edith Fram were instrumental in plotting his future as a son of God. He also served in several churches throughout Trinidad mostly in the music ministry and is a recipient of the title "Chaplain." He returned to school to fulfill his childhood dream pursuing and attaining diplomas for Mechanical Electrical and Electronic Engineering-Technician. This led him into another closely related discipline certified as an offshore-plant operator. Richard married his beloved schoolmate Delores, and has been for the past thirty three years. They're blessed to have had a miracle from God in their two sons Joshua and Jonathan. The First Amendment is his debut as an author.
