Rob lives in Northern California. Besides family and friends, Rob enjoys nature and baseball on the radio. His favorite food is ice-cold watermelon, the hard to find 20 pound kind, on a hot summer’s day. He looks for inspiration in the ordinary, that which is in plain sight but over looked. Rob writes in the morning with a couple cups of coffee. When he shuts out the hubbub of the customers and baristas and here’s only his imagination, he knows his writing is on the right track.
