A Telling Eperience

A TRain, A Fox, a Cat

Hello, I’m Richard M. Trask. The middle initial M. stands for a family name (Meaker), a name which I cherish but don’t use except for the M., which helps to distinguish me from the unknown number of other Richard Trasks scattered widely hither and yon. My middle initial is useful and even indispensable for ordering books of mine on Amazon.com. With my name spelled out as Richard M. Trask it will likely be a hit with any click, but without the M. probably a miss.


The three photos illustrate some of my interests and subject matter. Trains and cats loom large in my mind as true loves in the material and animal world, and they loom up in my book of short stories, A Telling Experience. The fox, a.k.a.. “Sir Reynard,” stars in a very telling experience of mine, vivid in memory and honored in my ten-minute play, “Don’t Try This at Home.” Through the years I have developed, for whatever reason, a special affinity for trains, cats, and foxes.


I explore such affinities and mysteries in the collection A Telling Experience, which I commend to your attention.  I’m a medievalist by education and vocation, and my book Beowulf and Judith: Two Heroes brings two crustily ancient Old English epics vividly to life. And I’m a writer by profession, thus The Complete Writer’s Guide: Questions of Language, a humanly funny book about that serious subject; also three staged plays and a screenplay.
