After 20 years as a dramatist and screenwriter, Ric Gibbs made a startling discovery: the myths and heroes that were underlying his fictional characters, were inhabiting his real life as well. Quick, Where’s My Cape? is a riveting exploration of the unconscious stories that shape our lives, and the steps we can take to draw power from them – to draw sword from stone, as it were – and live the lives we are meant to live.
The last thing Wyatt McHenry wanted was to find himself dragged into a lopsided war, by a do-good American female hell bent on saving a nation! But that’s exactly what happens in this calamitous misadventure. Part romance, part thumb-in-your-eye rivalry, McHenry’s Guide to Treasure Hunting is full-on adventure, both hilarious and deeply felt. Genre: Adventure, with a strong dose of romance and hilarity.
Based on a true story of a young woman’s extraordinary odyssey through the underworld of sex slavery, and the young man who becomes entangled with her. Ric Gibbs’ first novel explores a hard hitting world that exists right under our noses.
Genre: Mystery, Romance.
Coming in 2019.
Author, filmmaker, and educator based in Los Angeles, California.

And for Paramount, Universal, Cinergi, USA, Fox, NBC and Warner Bros Television.

In addition to his teaching and screen work, he has written two novels. His newest non-fiction work Quick, Where’s My Cape? is a practical guide to seeing how our most important story patterns – those we call myths – continue to express themselves in our creative work – and our everyday lives.
