In years past this has been home to Rickshaw Consulting – yes I still do the odd job on the side. Recently I did a redesign for the Santa Barbara Chapter of the Accounting & Financial Woman’s Alliance. I also provide hosting services for AFWASB, the Antelope Valley College Bond Campaign Yes on AV, and Faulconer-Boger (site design by 451Media). If you’re looking for a site redesign or hosting, please drop a note. If I don’t have time, I’m sure know someone how does.

About Rick Shaw, Author

I believe deeply everyone needs a cathartic release. Whether it is hiking, running marathons, sports, or the rumble of a Road King and fellow bikers, everyone needs something completely different from what you do to pay the bills. A few years back I turned to writing. Late in the evening, when the house is quite, I slip on my headphones, turn up the music, and immerse myself in worlds, characters, and stories of my making. It took a while, but I have finally come to terms with the fact that I’m one of those people that enjoys telling lies to strangers, and killing people, for the entertainment of others.

Going forward this site will be dedicated to my delusions, and occasionally news from the road, along my journey to becoming a published author. Evenings and weekends I write – Science Fiction, Thrillers, and Horror, largely to provide an outlet for the voices in my head. Sometime in the near future I’ll post samples, and you can judge for yourself.

I am intermittently active with SFF-OnlineWritersWorkshop. I encourage writers, of SciFi/Fantasy/Horror, looking for an active and supportive environment to check it out. I listen to a number of podcasts, you can check out my thoughts on the Dead Robots Society Podcast on my blog Curating the Muse.

I am also a frequent attendee of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. The friendliest and most supportive community of writers you will ever find. I strongly recommend Matt Pallamary’s Phantastic Fiction as well as John Reed & Lorelei Armstrong‘s Pirate Sessions.
