Nathan Comp, the award winning writer behind the Feral Scribe, is a graduate of Middleton High School who currently resides in New Mexico. Despite the ample scope of her journey, Seeking Shama writer Kee Kee Buckley, who has been featured by the Huffington Post, still considers her native Middleton home. The Middleton Chamber offers a variety of resources on its website, as does the Middleton Tourism Commission.
On a cold January day in the very late 1970s, Nathan J. Comp was born.
He describes this moment as a turning point.
Much of his life is spent reading, writing and wandering.
The rest he figures out as he goes.
For almost 14 years Kee Kee Buckley was a senior executive with one of Hollywood’s top motion picture production companies. After being laid off along with 2/3 of her company, she was faced with the reality that she could no longer define herself by her work. This, combined with the realization that working in Hollywood never really made her happy, shook her to the core. The resulting existential crisis led Kee Kee to do what was previously unthinkable for a classic overachiever: she loaded up her car, Princess Leia the Prius, with her dog Yoda and took to the U.S. highways for 5 months in hopes that the lessons of the road would bring her peace (aka “Shama”).
The Chamber's mission
is to promote a strong economy and high quality of life for our members and the greater Middleton Community.
We are an association
of more than 600 businesses, focusing on facilitation, advocacy, education and communication.
