Tales by Bob
Writer of the Strange and Fantastic
Born and raised in South Alabama, Bob has been writing as long as he can remember, though only began to take it seriously in the fall of 2012. That year he completed his first NaNoWriMo, writing a collection of short stories. This gave him the impetus to actually attempt to pursue a career as a writer. Since then has written in a variety of genres: horror, southern gothic, steampunk, and fantasy.
A graduate of Troy University, holding a Bachelors in Anthropology and a Masters in Post Secondary Education (Music Industry), he currently pays the bills by working at a warehouse, and occasional small writing gigs for bands and businesses.
He is a firm believer that puns are the highest form of humor. There are some hidden in this website. Consider it a chance for a game of Where's Waldo, Pun Edition.
Really though, Bob writes genre fiction. To date he's finished a couple of novels that he's working on editing, one southern horror and one grimdark fantasy. He's also written four collections of steampunk short stories with a horror flair that are being published by Laser Blast Books. Beyond that he's got a collection of fantasy shorts, and an assortment of shorts published in various anthologies.
