Richard Nigh has been told he was born in Toledo, Ohio, but he remembers very little except that he lived on what his sister called "One-Two-Three Street." He spent most of his childhood in San Jose, CA and graduated from high school in Grants Pass, OR. After a glorious and uneventful two years in the Army, for which he is now a Vietnam War Era Veteran, he graduated from the University of Oregon.
He wanted to be a lawyer, but after studying very hard and working his way through college, he decided to take a break and move to Japan. There he stayed for nearly 30 years, first working at an electronic components corporation and then teaching English at Kyoto Gaidai Nishi High School.
He now resides in Saipan, which sounds like it is in China but which is actually a Commonwealth of the United States. He lives with his wife and younger son. His elder son is at university. Both sons are bright lads who speak both English and Japanese fluently, and Joey also now speaks some Chinese.
Richard has also published, "Students with Major Depression Neglected in CNMI Public Schools," and expects to publish his next book, "Harityc," either this year or in early 2014.
