Married twice, each time for 18 years, Richard began online dating at the age of 64, after the end of his second marriage. Lost in the cyberspace of strange faces and distant places, he chronicled his journey to discover a true soul connection. Many years, many encounters, and countless lonely nights later he produced Lonely Heart, Will Travel in a cathartic effort to heal his own wounds while helping others to navigate the quagmire of finding real love.Buy now
Richard La Plante was born in Easton Pennsylvania and currently resides in the high desert of Southern California. With degrees in literature and psychology, and teaching grades in martial arts, he is a long-time student and instructor of physical and mental training for heightened awareness, specializing in those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. He hosts regular workshops, and weekly Zoom seminars on breath and movement, stress release and mindful breathing.
First published in 1988, his books, both novels and memoirs, have taken him on tours and speaking engagements across America and Europe and onto hundreds of radio and television shows.
Richard is funny and often irreverent; he is also deeply spiritual and compassionate, both to himself and those he loves, teaches and trains. You can connect with him through his website. He’d love to hear from you. No photos and no profiles required.
