Richard Walsh

Richard Walsh is a part-time writer and full-time husband, father, and accountant. He lives with his family and a pack of basset hounds in the suburbs of Minneapolis and stays active with local politics, roleplaying games, and light (very light) jogging.

Richard is influenced by a wide variety of genre writers, most notably Cormac McCarthy, P.G. Wodehouse, Robert Heinlein, and Raymond Chandler. His worldview is fundamentally libertarian and subsidiarist, but the themes of his work often extend beyond questions of the individual and the state.

To date, Richard’s most prominent work is the Adventures of Seamus Tripp, which he coauthors with Jon Garett. The Adventures of Seamus Tripp is a book series suitable for readers of all ages. It combines humor, action, and adventure in a format that is exciting, literary, and good fun. Get a taste of the series for free with The Adventure of Seamus Tripp and the North Star Witch.
