VJ Books Presents Author William Dietrich!

Author William DietrichWilliam Dietrich was born on Sept. 29, 1951 in Tacoma, WA. He attended Fairhaven College, an experimental liberal arts division of Western Washington University. Interest in writing led him to journalism at Western, and his first job was covering agricultural Skagit County for the Bellingham, WA, Herald.

From 2006-2011, he took a half-time position as an assistant professor teaching environmental journalism and writing at Western, advising a student magazine called Planet

Dietrich's first book, The Final Forest, (1992) grew out of his reporting on the spotted owl and old growth forest debate that convulsed the Pacific Northwest.

Dietrich also worked on a history of the college where he taught, called Green Fire, that recounts the story of Huxley College of the Environment. That one has been a collaborative effort with students, staff, and alumni, and was published in the spring of 2011. He has also contributed essays to several local books, in which the proceeds went to environmental organizations, on the geography and environment of Northwest Washington.

He is married to the wonderful woman that he met in college, has two grown daughters, and six grandchildren. When not writing, Dietrich likes to read, hike, sail, and travel.
