Jean-Paul Richard

Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose
(The more it changes, the more it’s the same thing)

Jean Paul Richard lives in the Sandbridge section of Virginia Beach. His writing flame was first ignited when he served as Feature Editor of the Northeastern News many years ago. He then went on to other careers in France, Canada, and the US while always harboring a yen for writing.

The proud parent of four children and grandfather of eight, he experiences life vicariously through the lives of all of these individuals while continuing his own lively schedule. As a part time career, he teaches courses in proposal management and technical writing through a DC area company.
