About the Author: Richard Cody

Richard Cody is a writer of poetry, fiction, and third person bios. His work has appeared in many and varied print and virtual publications.

He has recently produced three books, all available as print on demand volumes at RCodywrites and/or Amazon.Com:

The Jewel in The Moment, random observations in Haikuish is the first collection of his experiments with the venerable Haiku form.

Darker Corners collects fourteen tales of the strange and macabre.

In these pages you will meet vampires, murderers, children and others who know where the shadows go. This expanded edition of Darker Corners pulls six new tales of dark wonder into the light. Read at your own risk. Some things are better left unseen.

Reviewers loved the first edition of Darker Corners:

E.S. Wynn says: "Stories like “A Night at the Games” where a girl literally chews herself into bits or “City Life”... leave you with a strange and macabre sense of awe..."

Will "The Thrill" Viharo says, among other things, in his Amazon review of the book:

"The anthology format reminds me of TV shows like "Tales from the Darkside" or "Masters of Horror," each installment completely unique and distinct from each other, yet interconnected by their compelling use of language, imagery and sheer storytelling mastery."

Renee Washburn of Apex Reviews calls Darker Corners "creatively crafted" and goes on to say, "Darker Corners stands out both for its imaginative flair and vivid storytelling power. Ostensibly a collection of horror tales, Cody's opus doubles as a poignant commentary on the more unattractive side of humanity, highlighting the thoughts and feelings we all possess - but are often afraid to show the light of day."

Darker Corners will tickle your scary bone. And then eat it!

This is Not My Heart contains more than 70 poems written over the last decade or so and spanning styles from free and open verse to metered and lyrical rhyme. Subject matter is equally broad, covering slice of life observations on love, writing, and urban life, and fantastic flights of fantasy. A book that can be opened to wry insight and deft wordplay at any page.

Wendy Paulson at Apex Reviews says This is Not My Heart is, "Rife with potent observations on life..."


"What makes This Is Not My Heart stand out from other poetic collections is its fresh, original take on everyday topics... Cody offers a unique perspective on the sights, sounds, and feelings that we all experience on a regular basis, oftentimes steeped in subtle irony or pointed humor."
