Welcome to this site. My name is Lucas Richert and I’m a writer and historian. If you’re wondering about why this site is called ‘Run For Your Life!’ it’s a reference to my first ever publication.
I’m busy these days and so not writing as many blog posts as in years past. But I still think it’s useful to maintain this blog, even though I’m not tending to it as lovingly as I might. Please nose around and I hope you enjoy.
