Fred Rivera

Fred Rivera
Fred Rivera was born in East Los Angeles, raised in Montebello, and graduated from East Los Angeles College. Writing and publishing Raw Man is a natural extension of his creativity as a professional musician. His volunteer work with various national veteran organizations focusing on supporting veterans and their families grappling with the lingering effects of war, PTSD, and Bad Paper, led to this work of fiction in service to reality. Despite living in constant pain from his war wounds, Fred is devoted to living a creative, joyful life, counting on the other constant in his life... the loving support of his friends and family.
