Richard Moore's travel writing and essays have appeared in more than two dozen national and regional publications, including The New York Times Sunday Magazine, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Charleston Magazine, The St. Petersburg Times, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and many more. He is the author of the book, January Thaw, and the forthcoming My Dinners with Dusty.


In addition, Richard is a senior investigative reporter for, and former editor of, The Lakeland Times in Minocqua, Wisconsin. He has also served as editor of The Reedsburg Times-Press and the Merrill Foto News. He is a contributing author to The Reform of State Legislatures (University Press of America), which John Fund, then editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal, called “an excellent report” on changes in state legislatures.


Richard’s writing has also appeared in college texts (Social Problems, edited by Stanley Eitzen, Allyn & Bacon, Inc.), and he is the author of How the DNR Stole Wisconsin and The New Bossism.


Richard resides in northern Wisconsin with his wife Lisa. He loves remote camping (meaning good hotels in far-away places), fine restaurants, and SEC football.
