Returning to the Close-Up Talk Radio experience is author, lecturer, naturalist, photographer, and traveler Richard Modlin. In the April 2013 feature, Richard shared his extraordinary life and career as a marine/freshwater biologist and retired professor. Throughout his career, Richard has studied ecological systems in some of the most fascinating places across the globe. Richard’s travels include trips to Africa, Europe, North and Central America, along with countless islands in the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, and Mediterranean Sea.

After retiring, Richard took some time to continue traveling with his wife. Within a few years, Richard decided to follow his lifelong desire to become an author and share his wonderful accounts about his travels and experiences across the world.

Detailing his many incredible experiences, Richard released two non-fictional works entitled Malachite Lion: A Travel Adventure in Kenya and Chasing Wings: Birding Exploits and Encounters. Readers can enjoy Modlin’s fascinating details of all that he encountered with East African culture and his encounters with exotic wildlife in Malachite Lion. In Chasing Wings, which nominated as a finalist by ForeWord Magazine 2008 Book of the Year in nature writing, Richard shares the encounters he shared with birds from a wide variety of glorious locations.

Recently, Modlin completed his debut fictional novel set for release this July 2013. Modlin describing his new novel says, “Newfound Freedom is about two English brothers that experience a perilous Atlantic crossing and become embroiled at the beginning of the American Revolution. It’s a magnificent story of adventure.”
