Richard Warren Field - Belated Introduction

Postby RichardWarrenField » Mon September 6th, 2010, 12:43 am

I've been posting here for about a month, mainly about "The Pillars of the Earth" mini-series - I found this group while searching for discussions about it. But this looks like a great group... and I figured I ought to check in.

I'm Richard Warren Field from Southern California. My novel about the Third Crusade, THE SWORDS OF FAITH, was published in July. I am working on the follow-up, THE SULTAN AND THE KHAN, set about 70 years later.

I love reading about just about anything, from books about quantum physics to Perry Mason mysteries. I'm also a musician, with similarly broad tastes (just about anything except opera and country music).

I look forward to getting into the discussions...

Welcome Richard! :-)

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Hi Richard. Any chance you're descended from Richard Warren of Mayflower fame?

Edited to add: country music has a bad reputation, but it's not all as bad/corny as people think. I'm eclectic in my music tastes as well.
