My Other Literary Interests
Apart from authoring works in the fiction and nonfiction categories, I maintain an academic interest in conducting social science research and publishing in scholarly peer-reviewed journals. I recently added this service for my former student-clients only. One of these recently published works may be seen here.
I have, also, a deep interest in reintroducing to the public amazing classic works of literature, history (particularly ancient), and archaic sacred texts, which languish in forgotten archives; one upcoming work in this area may be seen here.
I received my Ph.D. from Capella University in December of 2014. Since then, I have been self-employed in the academic field, providing personalized help to struggling Ph.D. students (www.rmtappin.com).
