With 11 family friendly historical novels, 3 Canadian bestsellers and 2 IPPY Gold Medals ... at 82 years of age, my fans won't allow me to quit!


Background Information

A native of Yorkshire, England, I'm the eldest son of ten siblings and they loved it when I told them my own brand of bedtime stories. I learned early in life to face challenges head on and was a real scrapper never turning down a fight if the cause was good enough. I've been in business since I was a six-year-old when I discovered I could easily turn knowledge into opportunity, utilizing this experience for my Lizzie Series. Later, as an expert in my field of mining engineering, I travelled internationally soaking up experiences and personalities I utilize in all my novels.

I spent 7 years working for a construction company in the Australian desert before moving to Canada to work on Baffin Island and Winnipeg for a couple of years. From there I moved to Victoria, BC where I met my Canadian wife, Joyce Sandilands.

As an English child, I developed an overactive love of history, and, in 1994 while recovering from surgery, I discovered I had a talent for putting words together and wrote my first novel, Lizzie: Lethal Innocence. It became my first of 3 bestselling novels.

Joyce edits and publishes my books and is also co-author of our single novels. She adapted one of my short stories for two chapter books with accompanying audio ... the "Moonbeam Series." She is also co-author of our 2nd Gold Medal winning novel, Whispers Across Time.

Birth Place
Grange Moor, Yorkshire,  England
Accomplishments

2007 - Winner of a Gold Medal in the 2007 Independent Publisher Awards (IPPYs) for Best Fiction Regional Category: Canada-West for Robert's 3rd novel in Victoria Chronicles Trilogy, "Loyalty's Haven." Again in 2008, Robert and Joyce repeated this feat by earning Gold in the same category for "Whispers Across Time."

This all began back when I was in Grade School and I earned a set of Charles Dickens novels for my essay writing. Later I graduated from mining college at Leeds University becoming the youngest mining engineer in England's history. I played cricket in Northern England (becoming a rather infamous wicket keeper in the '60s for my daring style!)

Additional Information

I wrote 9 historical novels in 9 years and because I love history they are extremely true to historical fact. They include the 4-book Lizzie Series and the 3-book Victoria Chronicles. My readers tell me my novels are true family-friendly books. Also, for these reasons, several of my novels have been required reading in various schools, colleges, and university history classes (US/Canada/UK) and/or English Literature classes. I sell my books mainly at craft shows and outdoor markets in and around Victoria, BC Canada, a popular tourist destination and many visitors return to pick up my lastest novel.

My life has certainly been anything but boring having lived, worked and played all over the world! I find that bits and pieces of my travels or people I meet, often end up in my books, adding the 'real' flavour to my characters!
