Rick Garman grew up in Iowa and although he appreciated his solid Midwestern upbringing, he moved to Los Angeles as soon as he was old enough to be sure that his parents couldn’t send a sheriff to bring him back.  He studied theater at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts, but soon realized that acting was not his passion.  Writing was.

He made his writing debut with a stage production 17 Days, which was produced at The Colony Theater in Los Angeles and played in in small theaters around the country.  The work received strong critical praise and several DramaLogue Awards.  A few years later, his second play Mountains debuted at The Colony.  It went on to win the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Los Angeles Theater Production.

He transitioned into travel writing, authoring more than a dozen guide books about Las Vegas including Frommer’s, Las Vegas for Dummies, and Moon Handbooks.

Rick has published three novels including Interitas Volume 1: The Beginning of Sorrows and Interitas Volume 2: False Prophets, the first two books in a proposed seven book YA series, and Jake Davenport PI: The Case of the Missing Cha Cha Heel, a comedic mystery.

For television, he has written, co-written, and/or executive produced many movies including:
