AboutAbout


WRITING IS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN PUTTING WORDS
DOWN TO PAPER - our stories and books, poems and written
verse, express our values and philosophies. The written word
is an expression of self, the ultimate form of conveyance from
mind to three-dimensional texture and surface.

I try to incorporate the emotions, feelings and sensations of
my characters into their stories and verse, to convey the
emotional constructs of growth and development that allows
them to move forward and change, and to experience the
virtues that make each of us different and unique.

The purpose of this Website is to explore new realms of the human psyche, to go beyond the boundaries of the human experience and enter the minds of my characters.  I write books that will hopefully spark my reader's imagination, and carry them into new worlds of suspense and intrigue. Utilizing imagery and sensory perception clues I immerse the reader into the character's emotional milieu, thoughts and physical perceptions. The reader shares his joys and his traumas. It is writing devoted to the evolution of character, story and plot and writing that truly places the reader inside the minds of the characters in the story.

Graduating from Towson University in Maryland and doing my graduate work at Western Illinois University, my works have been published in a number of anthologies including the prestigious Space Coast Writers Guild in Florida,  the Scribblers of Brevard, also in Florida, Poetry Soup, and Eber & Wein, and more recently, by Taylor & Seale Publishers.  I served as the Literary Editor of the Scribblers of Brevard, 2018-2019, and as their president first part of 2020. I write novels, short stories and poetry. Published books include: "First Call - Poetry for the Ages",  "Quarrytown - The Teenage Years", "Gehenna",  Book One of the Justice Unbound series, "Blessed - the Story of Joyce V. Marschall""The Magic of Christmas" - Book One of the Christmas poetry trilogy series, "Deadly Encounters",  Book Two of the Justice Unbound series, "In the Eyes of the Children" - Book Two of the Christmas poetry trilogy series, and have just completed the brand new  "2027 - the Beginning", action/thriller.

2

GEHENNA (2018)

3

FIRST CALL * POETRY FOR THE AGES (2018)

In his first poetry anthology, Richard A. Marschall delves into the realm of human emotions, sentiments, and interactions, in flowing meter and rhyme - from the mystical rhymes of "Cobalt Blue" and the haunting story told in "An Old Man's Elegy", to the sobering thoughts of the pentameter of "Neighborly Ways", and then later, to the questions in his free verse, of was it the lizard's fault, that he did nothing when the big machines came to demolish his lands and his home.

4

BLESSED * THE STORY OF JOYCE V. MARSCHALL (2020)

How, could a young girl, confronted with an incomprehensible, debilitating, disease, surmount the odds of her doctors' ignorance and ambivalence, and her parent's frustration and uncertainty? She would have to use all her cunning and wits to battle the insidious monster, and demon growing inside her.

5

The Magic of Christmas (2020)

The first of the Christmas Poetry Anthology Trilogy series explores the real meaning of the Christmas Holiday, and what Christmas is all about. A delightful collection of lighthearted Christmas verse addresses the ageless question of whether or not, Christians still accord the proper significance to the real meaning of Christmas.

SNIPPETS II

DEADLY ENCOUNTERS (2021)

Is it too late to undo the "Master's" plan? Is our nation even capable of overcoming the overwhelming odds that have been marshaled against us? Have members of our own government betrayed us?

2

In the Eyes of the Children, Poetry, Anthology Trilogy, Book Two (2021)

In his second of his Christmas Trilogy series Richard A. Marschall elicits the ideas and emotions of the very ones who make and shape our world. Here, he draws on the premise, that the children are our lives, and it is they, who hold the promise of a better tomorrow!

3

2027 THE BEGINNING (coming in 2022)

Our world, as we knew it, ... gone in an instant of retaliatory rage of man against man, of dogma against dogma. Thirty-five of our most liberal enclaves, wiped out in the nano-seconds of thirty-five nuclear blasts. No more left-wing ideology, no more socialism, or pre-communist society. Conservatives should have been elated. Did it not signal a return to the days before 911? The opposition was crushed. Hatred, mistrust and false narratives were squelched. Why did he feel the stinging pain of the dead? Why did he harbor the need, to visit the wastelands?
