ResetRetirement from a lifelong career opens new reinvention opportunities for those not wanting to sit home.

For Dick Hatin of Hooksett, leaving a decades-long government job has given him the time to write several novels.

His prolific imagination keeps him busy, often working on more than one book at a time. Dick’s new life also affords him the time to become active in volunteer work as well as an activist for the Prostate Cancer Coalition of New Hampshire.

Dick’s fiction stories are dark, but his second act in life is very bright as an author and activist. Listen in to learn how this one-time altar boy who dedicated his career to government work found his niche exploring the human condition, and good vs. evil.
