J.D. Tuccille is an award-winning contributing editor at Reason magazine. His provocative and often witty columns on topics including civil liberties, government overreach, and scofflawry’s importance for restraining state power have appeared in publications including the Arizona Republic, the Washington Times, and Newsweek.
If you’re especially unlucky, you may catch him discussing these topics on radio or television.
He is also the author of the comic-adventure novel, High Desert Barbecue, which reviewers have kindly described as “fun,” “a very polished novel,” and “[f]illed with likable characters, tons of humor, and a nice sprinkling of libertarianism throughout.”
An enthusiastic explorer of the American Southwest’s deserts, mountains, and forests, Tuccille lives in rural northern Arizona with his pediatrician wife, their son, and their dog.
