Richard Meyer inspired high school English and humanities students in southern Minnesota for thirty-two years while composing poetry of his own. He lives in his family home, the house his father built, in Mankato, a city at the bend of the Minnesota River. Meyer's poems have appeared in numerous journals and publications. Critically acclaimed for his poems "Fieldstone" (Robert Frost Farm Prize) and "The Autumn Way" (String Poet Prize), Meyer has also received top honors in the Great River Shakespeare Festival sonnet contest.
Milton Hancock is a brilliant yet immature teenager who develops a machine capable of transporting objects through time. Things go horribly wrong when two hired hoodlums attempt to steal his project, separating Milton from his girlfriend, Jane, who unexpectedly finds herself transported into the past while Milton is helplessly trapped in a very unwelcoming future.
Arrested as an illegal immigrant and thrown into a detention center in the lunar crater, Plato, Milton must use his brilliance and find the courage to make a daring escape from his evil captors. But when the arch villain Bertha is suddenly thrown into the past with plans to destroy their future, only one person will be able to follow her back in time and destroy her...but the one who goes can never return.

Inspired by the classics of Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo and Jules Verne, Richard plans to continue writing epic novels, as well as non-fiction stories. He and his wife, Dianne, have two grown children and live in Australia's Gold Coast.
