Robert Lane

Robert Lane is the author of the widely praised Jake Travis stand alone novels. Florida Weekly calls Jake Travis a "richly textured creation; one of the best leading men to take the thriller fiction stage in recent years." Adds Foreword Clarion Reviews, "Travis distinguishes himself amongst other dynamic PI's via his pure zest for life which is often presented with a sensual edge."
Lane's debut novel, "The Second Letter," won the Gold Medal in the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) 2015 Benjamin Franklin Awards, for Best New Voice: Fiction.
Mr. Lane enjoys his music on a 1962 floor model Magnavox that belonged to his parents. His vinyl collection spans Billie Holiday to Jason Isbell. But when he's pouring whiskey, it's Dusty in Memphis. He runs and swims in the predawn hours (or some loose interpretations of those two activities) and cannot imagine a finer start to any day. He's a sucker for Florida sunsets and hopes the magic never ends.
Mr. Lane has a degree in English from Maryville College, Maryville, TN. He resides on the west coast of Florida. You can learn more at Robertlanebooks.com and follow him on Facebook, where you can share the sunset world of Jake Travis.
