Author Bio: Richard B. Pelzer

Richard B. Pelzer was born fourth of five boys in 1965 in Daly City, California. From his earliest memories, Richard recalls watching his older brother David being abused and was the only witnesses to his mother’s attempt to kill her son and Richard’s older brother. Once the California authorities learned of the unspeakable acts occurring in a suburban California home, the state removed Richard’s brother leaving him and three other boys behind. Throughout his adolescence and teen years, Richard suffered physical, mental, and emotional abuse at the hands of his mother. Richard spent most of his teenage years moving about the country from Maui, Hawaii to Richmond, Virginia seeking the support and love of a family. Richard barely survived his incredible abusive childhood and his own self-destructive teenage years. After thirty years and with the support of his wife, Richard collected his memoirs and created his first book A Brother’s Journey. This collection of memoirs tells of the emotions and heartache that a child abuse victim carries throughout those tender and short years from ages 5 to 15. Until recently he was employed in the banking and financial fields. Now he lives with his wife and children outside Boston, where he now spends his time as a writer.
