Welcome My Friends to my Amazon Books writer's website!

May my humble musings bring you joy, peace and new insights to uplift your fellow man.

My journey on the road less traveled.


Over four decades ago I wrote and published, "The Greatest Crime."

From the nameless void of time eternal a voice calls forth for all to hear. It speaks of the wrongs that do occur both afar and far to near. It speaks of the wrong done by man of failing to offer an uplifting hand. It speaks of the greater wrong done by those who know what must be done yet refuse to do so. It then notes our greatest crime refusing to believe in our fellow man across all space and time.

Thus began a lifetime  dedicated to empowering my fellow man to enhance our common condition. 


My Hope for you.

Please consider exploring my thoughts shared with millions over the Internet and now tens of thousands across the globe as e-books and in print.

My writing story literally began as nothing more than an 11th grade English project. 5,000 articles, Op-Eds, Letters to the Editor, Internet posts and e-books later, I hope you will come to find topics which interest you. 

 I began this journey penning poems, witting short stories and novellas as you can review linking into my Fiction Section.

My most read books are; the devotional series, "40 Shades of Love," a Lenten reflection text,  "Advent, Preparing for Christ."  as well as my two part autobiography "Only in Real Life" , "Real Life in Perspective," 

Additionally my thoughts on America's future have been well received found in texts such as "Resurrecting Common Sense in America," "America's Income Inequality Challenge," , "2018 America's Wave Election. and the newly released  "2020 America's Voter Rebellion Continues." 

Recently I added a blog to this web site to address reader questions and comment on the events of the day.  Additionally  I continue to pen Op-Eds posted on multiple platforms such as Medium.com


My Style, My Goal

I do not pretend to be a journalist or an academic at alone the world's next great author. I am a teller of stories presented in a first person narrative style. A man attempting to do no more than express my humble thoughts concerning our common journey in life.

Many have asked, "Why  I published my articles and series for free on the Internet for decades and continue to give away my e-books per Amazon's promotional limitations?"

All I can tell you is, "If you love something set it free." That journey on the path less taken to me has made all the difference. 

Peace be with you.


Risk the Path Less Traveled

Our Common Heritage of Hope


One theme runs throuhg nearly everything Richard Mathews writes, "United we can create a future filled with the promises all truly hold most dear."

Be Part of the Solution


It is true, there are no easy answers to complex problems. But united we can make the commitment, dedicate the resources and establish the long term plans to make our dreams come true.

Our Future is Up to Us


The more you know, the greater chance you have of fulfilling your dreams following the path less taken.
