R. V. Schmidt
R. V. Schmidt grew up in San Francisco. The mean streets of the East Bay and the sanctuary of its surrounding
rural landscape provided the perfect blend of material for a writer some have labeled
a natural-born storyteller. Over the last 50 years, he has been gathering information for something he calls "a novel of hysterical fiction." He recently fled the
San Francisco Bay area and now lives in chaotic solitude somewhere in the mountains
of Northern California.
