Richard H Chamberlin

I grew up in Miami, FL, spent four years in the Navy during the Vietnam War, then graduated from Columbia College in Chicago in 1972 with a BA in journalism. I worked on a small newspaper in Indiana then moved to Madison, Wisconsin where I became a writer-cab driver for 30 years. My memoir "Hitchhiking from Vietnam: Seeking the Ox" was published in 2007 followed by "The Cybernetic Possum," a collection of short stories and poetry in 2010. My most recent book, a novel set in Idaho titled "Nora's Notion," came out in 2015.I am retired and live with my wife in Green Valley, AZ.
