Richard Zielinski lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his lovely wife Carmella and two adopted dogs, Chloe and Neuman. He is a Navy veteran and a former English teacher at Tarentum Junior High. Richard also self-published a book of short stories titled The Short Stories of a Strange Man, available on Amazon, in which he “used his wild and varied experiences and added much exaggeration.“ He is currently working on a second book of short stories, but don’t hold your breath. The first one took 30 years to finish.
