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

Dinners with Dusty.
In addition, Richard is a senior investigative reporter for, and
former editor of, The Lakeland Times in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
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.
Publishers). He is the author of How the DNR Stole Wisconsin
and The New Bossism.
Richard resides in northern Wisconsin with his wife, Lisa, and
loves remote camping—good hotels in far-away places, fine
restaurants, and SEC football.
