Rob Howell

I am a reformed medieval academic who draws upon those skills and resources for my stories and settings. I have also been an IT professional, a cook, and a soda jerk. I am originally from Houston, Texas, but I dutifully followed my parents as they went from there to Hillsboro, Texas, then to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and finally to Wichita, Kansas.

Along the way, they discovered about the only way to keep me quiet was to give me a book. Unfortunately for them, I can read quickly, so they had to give me lots of books. Pretty, pretty books. I latched onto the Hardy Boys series first, then about anything else I could reach. Without books, either me or his parents probably would not have survived. Possibly both.

I have traveled extensively. Most recently, in 2012, I walked the majority of the Offa's Dyke Trail along the border of Wales and England. Many experiences on the trail shaped my writing. One might say the Offa's Dyke Trail led to Edward.

I am too educated for most jobs, and not quite educated enough for a few, so I decided to use my experiences and write novels. Fortunately, I have always written and had always wanted to emulate Forester, Tolkien, Weber, Drake, Parker, Chandler, and Francis.

Now I am.
