Born in Edmonton, London, in 1951,Robert spent several of his formative years living in Cornwall where he began to develop a life long love of nature and the rural way of life. He began writing in his early teens and much of his short romantic fiction was subsequently published in various periodicals, including "Secrets", "Red Letter" and "The People's Friend".
Never one to let the necessity of making a living get in the way of his writing, Robert has continued to write for most of his life whilst holding down a succession of jobs, which have included Health food shop manager, Typewriter mechanic and Taxidermist - yes, you read that correctly.
His passion for the history of the early twentieth century is second only to his love of writing and it was whilst researching in this area that he came across the diaries and letters of some women who had lived through the trauma of the First World War. What he read in them inspired him to write his debut novel "Dance The Moon Down"- and the rest, as they say, is history.
Robert is single and lives and writes in Hertfordshire, England.
