After writing a few short plays, Robert wrote a full-length, comedy screen play that made the finals in national writers competition. Then in 2006, he began writing his first novel, BICYCLE SHOP MURDER, posting each chapter on his blog as he wrote it. He continued to write and post three more books, which made up his four-book GREG TENORLY SUSPENSE SERIES.

Since then, Robert has written three mystery books (SWEET GINGER POISON, GINGER DEAD HOUSE, and REBECCA RANGHORN - TEXAS P.I.), a children's sci-fi, DREAM TUNNEL, and a thriller, DEADLY COMMITMENT. His work-in-progress is a psychological suspense novel, FOUR STEPS UNDER.

Robert worked in the music field for many years and then after going back to college, became a software engineer, developing applications for the Mission Control Center at Johnson Space Center in Houston for fourteen years before taking an early retirement to write fiction full-time.

He earned a Bachelor of Music degree and a B.S. in Computer and Information Sciences from Lamar University, and did graduate music work at University of North Texas. He loves spending time with family, playing guitar, yoga, and watching movies. He has three children, eight grandchildren, and one great grandchild. He and his wife live near Houston, Texas.
