Rick (Richard B) Ogle was born in 1951 in Northern Ontario. This is his first appearance in the writing world. He worked for forty-five plus years as a journeyman fabricator welder. In 1978 Rick wrote a short story called “Storms”, that turned into two books. His work always came first, so writing took the back burner. Sorcerers Reborn began in late 2000, and again work came first, so the book was not revisited until he was forced into retirement in 2013. In 1998 Rick went back to school to learn something that would get me out of his chosen trade as a fabricator/welder.
He spent six months as an adult literacy tutor and found that was rewarding when he saw the progress each student was making. He currently holds an Adult Instructors Diploma. He completed a six-month course to obtain an A+ computer technicians’ certification. He has an AutoCAD certificate in drafting and design. He instructed classes for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access at the North Cariboo Community Skills Center in Quesnel BC.
Rick is self taught in HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) code and built his website in 1998 while he was in school. He named his website “Poems and Short Stories by Richard B”. That website is still going today. Home page Home
