Rick Homan writes murder mysteries and thrillers. His Nicole Tang Noonan mysteries are set on a college campus in rural Ohio and in San Francisco, Nicole's home town. As a professor of art history, Nicole's expertise allows her to see clues others miss.
Nicole's world is one Rick knows well. As a former professor of theater arts, he believes there are few places on earth as frustrating, delightful and intriguing as a college campus and he enjoys bringing that world to life in his Nicole Tang Noonan series.
In Rick’s most recent novel, The Con Man’s Son, a chilling game of hide and seek plays out on the foggy streets of San Francisco, as a private-equity investor does whatever it takes to protect his career, his reputation, and his family. Rick grew up in Ohio and barnstormed around the country with his wife, Ann, in pursuit of his academic career. They relocated to San Francisco in 2006, attracted, like so many before them, by its natural beauty, rich cultural amenities and literary heritage.
