Robert Dennis (Bob) Wilson resides in Florida with his wife, Joyce, and their long-hairedFinnish Spitz, Lady. They have four married children and five grandsons, scattered from coast to coast. Besides writing novels and poetry and being an avid reader, Bob is a singer-songwriter and a scroll saw artist. He works full time telecommuting from home as a Programmer/Report Designer for an international transportation corporation.
Before meeting the love of his life, Bob actually received a BABE degree in college: that is, a “Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Education” from Washington Bible College, Lanham, MD. He has worked in various support roles for churches, missions, and para-church organizations. Bob continues to have a active role in his current church.
“THE PLAYERS: Earth – The Arena #1” is Bob’s first published novel. It went on sale as a B&N ebook on October 9th, 2010, his wife’s birthday! The “Earth – The Arena” series has been a pet project of Bob’s for almost his entire adult life. What he originally thought would be a single volume has expanded into a four novel series, with pieces of the other three books in various stages of completion. The original concept for the book developed on a daily bus trip he took during his sophomore year in college. The year was 1969.
Bob is also working on a fantasy series, “The Dragon’s Back Trilogy”. The first volume, “THE POISON OF THORNS: The Dragon’s Back #1” is also now available as an e-book through B&N and should be available as both a paperback and e-book through Amazon.com before Thanksgiving of 2010. The second novel in this series, “MY BROTHER’S KEEPER,” is going though its final steps in preparation for publication and hopefully will be out in various forms very soon.
