[caption id="attachment_982" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Click Here to Buy this Book"][/caption] Paperback Writer welcomes on this first Monday in April, humor novelist Richard Arneson, author of the novel, Citizen Dick. Richard Arneson’s thirteen years working in corporate America drove him up a tree―literally. Once he escaped the telecommunications industry after ten years of service, he built a tree house―ostensibly for his two young sons―installed electricity and cable TV, and set out to fix himself, deciding that dealing with the memories of working in the goofy-as-hell world of corporate America could only be accomplished by getting them down on paper. CITIZEN DICK is the result. Arneson is currently working on his next novel, THE TREE HOUSE, which, ironically, is not being written in his tree house but in the cab of his 1950 Chevy pickup truck. He lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife, a two-time cancer survivor who can’t remember why
