Rob Howell

     Author


Rob is a reformed medieval academic who draws upon those skills and resources for his stories and settings. He has also been an IT professional, a cook, and a soda jerk. Originally from Houston, Texas, he dutifully followed his parents as they went from there to Hillsboro, Texas, then to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and finally to Wichita, Kansas. Along the way, they discovered about the only way to keep Rob quiet was to give him a book. Unfortunately for them, it turned out he could read very quickly, so they had to give him lots of books. He latched onto the Hardy Boys series first, then about anything else he could reach. Without books, either he or his parents probably would not have survived. Possibly both. Rob has traveled extensively. Most recently, in 2012, he walked the majority of the Offa's Dyke Trail along the border of Wales and England. Many experiences on the trail shaped his writing. One might say the Offa's Dyke Trail led to Edward. He decided to write professionally when he discovered he was too educated for most jobs, and not quite educated enough for a few. Fortunately, he had always written and had always wanted to emulate Forester, Tolkien, Weber, Drake, Parker, Chandler, and Francis. Now he can.
