Richard Levesque was born near Montreal,Canada and grew up in Southern California.

He began writing while in college, publishing several pieces in college journals while working on his undergraduate degree at Cal Poly Pomona. After finishing his Master's Degree in 1990, he focused more on teaching than writing for a few years, eventually completing his Ph.D. at UC Riverside in 2000. His dissertation was on Hollywood novelists of the 1920s and 1930s.

Since 1999, he has been part of the English Department at Fullerton College and turned again to writing a few years ago. He primarily writes science fiction but continues to have a strong interest in early Hollywood and Los Angeles history and culture and often works those themes into his writing.

My cover artist, Duncan Eagleson, interviewed me as part of his “Cover Stories” feature at his website, Corvid Design. You can find about some of the things that went into The Somniscient, Foundlings, and my other books. You can also read my thoughts on cyberpunk, the research I do before writing, my favorite word and a lot more.


You can find the interview here.

Take Back Tomorrow by Richard Levesque
"I was hooked by the description of this book in which the protagonist is a struggling science fiction author who can't seem to get his work published, so he turns to plagiarizing Shakespearean plays (reset in space) in order to get his best-seller..." Read more of this review »
Take Back Tomorrow by Richard Levesque
"This book presents an interesting twist bringing a science fiction story to an older era. Creative and well thought out,the novel was a fast read.

It seemed like believable science fiction and a read to cross genres."
