At 18 years old, Robert went to work at JC Penney's where he spent a decade in the Visual Display Department. Robert's love of vampires and working in the retail/fashion industry provided the inspiration to create his own vampire story. After several years of writing and re-writing, Valerie: Daughter of the Dragon was born.
When Robert isn't obsessing over his writing; he can be found taking in a movie, or two, or even three at his favorite local cinema, relaxing and listening to his extensive music collection, or cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes. Robert is a big sports fan, but prefers football and baseball to all other sports. His favorite pastime is participating as team owner and Commissioner of a fantasy football league.
Robert's other love is to spend time at the ocean. At least once a year, he and Jackie pack up and head to the warm relaxing beaches of South Carolina.
