RC Atchisson...

...is a Midwest-based writer, producer, and performer. A high school teacher by vocation, RC claims that the creative arts have always been an incessant avocation calling him back time and again to write, act, or produce local film and theatrical productions.

He is the author of the "30 Miles Out"® series of romantic-comedies which include kick bACK, nutcrACKer stroll, and love shACK. The fourth book in the series, bACK trACK is due out in 2018. Hard at work on his continuing series of inspirational workbooks Onward!® Biblical Beacons, RC is currently developing two children's books and his Word Sherpas™ program for emerging and devloping writers.

He has penned A Problem of Evil for the stage and acted as screenwriter for the feature films Take Two, kick bACK (based on his novel), and Sugar Pill (in collaboration with Dane Gasparovic).

A former radio personality and frequent commercial actor, his stage credits have included Mamet, Shakespeare, and Moliere; though he claims his favorite role is dad to his furry rescue family.

RC, his wife Amy, and their pups reside in Missouri.
