Rick Hodges is a professional writer by day and author by night. A voyage to East Africa, and the experience of seeing how the people there lived in tandem with wildlife, inspired his debut novel, To Follow Elephants, which won a Nautilus Book Awards silver medal. Rick’s other fictional works include award-winning short stories and a stage play, Three Generations of Imbeciles, which shines the light on the once common practice of involuntary sterilization of people with disabilities in the U.S. Rick lives with his wife and two daughters in Arlington, Virginia.
