About:

While he was still a college journalism student, award-winning writer Richard Foster became the first reporter to track down and interview the legendarily reclusive pin-up model Bettie Page. His 1997 biography of her, The Real Bettie Page, was adapted into the 2006 HBO Films movie “The Notorious Bettie Page” starring Gretchen Mol. In the decades since, Foster has written and worked for numerous publications, including Style Weekly magazine. His writing ranges from celebrity profiles and feature articles to in-depth investigative pieces. Most recently, Foster hosted the true-crime podcast series “Southern Nightmare: The Hunt for the South Side Strangler,” the story of the first serial killer in U.S. history convicted on the basis of DNA evidence, available at southernnightmare.com. He can be found on Twitter and Instagram @RVAwriter. Foster, who has two adult sons, lives in Richmond, Virginia, with his wife and their four very needy cats.
