Richard Oliver Champion is the child conceived during the lovefest known as Woodstock. Though his young parents, Ollie and Becky, pursue their dreams, life is not kind to them, and they are unable to keep the magic of their young love alive. Richard grows up as an only child with his possessive and loving mother. Though he’s never known his father, he yearns to know what he was like and why he had left. The information Richard pieces together from others paints a picture of Ollie that is both contradictory and incomplete. As others seemingly desert him, Richard struggles with his identity and the unintended repercussions that follow him during college and into his first job. He leans on the advice and love of three surrogate father figures who help him navigate toward a more sane and hopeful future.
Follow Richard to Texas and read about his adventures in DENIAL.
