First-- Rick started using his full birth name of Richard Manly Heiman (as pretentious as it sounds) just recently, when he discovered that there was another Rick Heiman out there in the writing world.
This here Rick Heiman holds a BA in Social Sciences, an MS in Exercise Science, an MA in English and Creative Writing, and an MFA in Writing. In 2016 he has been nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize in Poetry.
