RJ HELLER lives life forward while keeping the
past close. By letting words find him to tell their
story, he captures moments experienced by us all
and presents them in a unique and tender way.

This first book is influenced by the author’s travels
and love of nature, especially the sea. Rick and his
family live their lives in Starboard Cove, Maine.
