and graduated from Midwood High School. Robert received a degree in Liberal Arts at Kingsborough
Community College and graduated cum laude with a degree in English from Brooklyn College in 1987.

credit analyst at Security Pacific Bank in New York. He worked for a short time at the Belding Hemingway
Company as a credit analyst before becoming a New York City Police Officer. Robert worked as a cop in
Manhattan South; primarily in the 1st and 9th Precincts. Robert and his family moved to South Florida,
where he worked at American Express Travel Related Services for fourteen years, most recently as their
Regulatory Compliance Manager in American Express' Ft. Lauderdale offices.

Robert currently resides in Greensboro, North Carolina with his wife and daughter.

Robert’s first published work was his poem, “Enamored Might,” which was featured in the 1984 edition of the
New Voices in American Poetry
anthology. In 1994, he received Poetry’s Best Award from the Writer’s Foundation,
and in 1997 won the Editor’s Choice Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry by the National Library of Poetry.
His poem, “The Blood Spider Again,” was included in the NLP’s anthology, Tracing Shadows.

Robert enjoys smoking handmade cigars and dabbles in oils, painting landscapes.

His debut novel was A Chase After Wind, which was then followed by Bread Upon the Water.
