About the Author
Rusty "R. D." Trimble has enjoyed writing since he was a child. Age age 14, he wrote an anthology of Twilight Zone-inspired stories called "Thirty Tales of Terror" that his English teacher said kept her up all night. He decided to become an author to engage his Autistic son more in reading, and his two children both feature heavily in most of his books. He also had written a crime drama novel called Tammany Hall under the pen name Steve McGovern. When not writing, Rusty is an avid reader and dad who loves nothing more than a rousing game of Animal Crossing and Max Payne II while also taking time out for the occasional Padres and Seahawks game. He is a happily married San Diego native who lives in the Clairemont area with his wife and two kids.
