This guy’s writing knocks me out!!!
A former celebrity journalist who intereviewed the likes of Stephen King and Charlton Heston, Robert has over a thousand articles and short stories, not to mention multiple awards.There’s no doubt he’s a law enforcement and military enthusiast. He gets police procedure and the action/adventure parts right. The lable “high-octane suspense” fits his work, no doubt about that!
I’m an over-the-top fan of his Comes A Horseman and Germ. I’ve got Deadfall on my to read list and can’t wait to get to it.
Robert is currently working with a few Hollywood producers. Three of his adult novels are in various stages of developement for the silver screen. Film rights to Comes A Horseman was purchased by the producer of Tom Clancey’s action/adventure movies. The word is he’s now in the process of writing screen plays for Germ and Deadfall…and is also working with director Andrew Davis (The Fugitive, Holes) on a political thriller.
I’m not at all surprised to learn that J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic Lord of the Rings trillogy are among Robert’s favorite books. I love those three as well and agree it’s a work that not only gets out of the box but goes off the reservation. Of course, Robert has said he also liked Moby Dick, which I couldn’t get through. So, there’s no accounting for taste on that one.
