A.R.  Simmons
  • A.R. Simmons

  • Born: in Chicago, IL, The United States.

  • Description: AR Simmons writes The Richard Carter Mystery/Suspense series. Obsession drives each of his monsters, and monsters they are. PTSD and OCD drive Richard himself as he evolves from a damaged soldier, to amateur sleuth, to professional criminalist—albeit in a small and underfunded rural Ozark sheriff’s department.

    AR (no punctuation) was born in Chicago, but his roots run four generations deep in Missouri Ozark soil. He uses the area’s culture, language, and small-town mores to tell stories both quaintly old-fashioned and as timely as the worst of today’s headlines. Blue Creek is "Everytown", and Richard is an "Everyman" who learns, that “Man is positively inclined to evil.”
