Parading Press was formed by two esteemed authors: the award-winning Robert Rodriguez and New York Times best-selling author Richard Buskin.

Robert, the Yank of the two, has written or contributed to nearly a dozen books. He was the creator of the FAQ book series for Hal Leonard, the world’s largest print music publisher. He’s worked every aspect of the book production trade, from author to acquisitions editor, with many a stop in between. Robert lives outside Chicago.

Richard, the Brit, has written 30 non-fiction books, including biographies and autobiographies of celebrities ranging from The Beatles to Phyllis Diller. A freelance journalist, he’s been published in dozens of periodicals ranging from Billboard to Playboy. Richard relocated from his native Britain in 1995 and lives in Chicago.
