In the middle of actively protesting the Vietnam War in the late Sixties in San Francisco and Berkeley, Alan Hodgkinson was drafted. The Army sent him to the Mekong Delta where he served as a rifleman with the 9th Infantry Division.
A graduate of California State University, he worked as a photojournalist for several years, then enrolled in Colorado State University's Graduate Writing Program. Afterwards, he joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Fiji, where he taught writing and literature at the University of the South Pacific.
Alan now lives in New Mexico where he spends his time writing. He has published many short stories and newspaper articles about the war since returning in 1969.
AFTER INCOMING is his first novel.
