Richard’s western crime fiction captures the fleeting history and lonely frontier stories of his youth where characters aren’t always what they seem, and the windburned landscapes are filled with swift, deadly danger.
His work has appeared in True West, Roundup, and Saddlebag Dispatches magazines and online at Boys’ Life. He won the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for short fiction and his Jo Harper stories have received nominations for the Peacemaker award from Western Fictioneers. Richard lives in Missouri with his wife Gina, son Wyatt, assorted cats, and a Great Pyrenees named Moose.

These are a series of well-written stories that will stand up to the test of time, and be more than welcome in a genre always in need of new, powerful voices. –Larry Sweazy, author of the Josiah Wolfe Texas Ranger series.
Authentic western action about people who seem as real as your next-door neighbors. Richard Prosch brings the real west to life in a way that few writers can. –Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series.
