Robert W. Ross
Robert W. Ross is the author of the best selling Sentinels of Creation print and audiobook series. The seventh book in that contemporary fantasy series, A Final Sacrifice, is set for release this Summer. In addition to Sentinels, Robert has released the first two books in his sci-fi series, Paradigm 2045. The last book of the Paradigm trilogy should come out in the Fall. Robert has both a passion for pop culture and a loathing to discuss himself in the third person. However, his wife convinced him that anyone who took the time to read his books or listen to his audiobooks might want to know a little about the person who made them. To that end, Robert’s influences include authors such as Robert A. Heinlein, Philip Jose Farmer, and Brandon Sanderson. He has a deep and abiding love for all things Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Sponge Bob. While Robert can often make obscure TV, Book, and Movie references, he sadly lacks any of his characters’ genetic enhancements. To the contrary, he is quite sure the brain space taken up by all that trivia is directly responsible for him lacking any sense of direction. In addition to his work as an author, Robert has led the Artificial Intelligence and Experience Design efforts for a number of Fortune 100 companies. He is also a keynote speaker and guest-lecturer at both Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State University. In both interviews and reviews, Robert's unique blend of pop-culture, alternate history, near future science fiction, magical systems, and strong female characters have been highlighted as key factors in his series’ success. Given the intense interest in his female protagonists, he has agreed to write two novellas that highlight their origins. The first novella, Isabella's Campaign, was published as part of the Storming Area 51 anthology that Robert supported along with a number of wonderful authors he's met along the way. While Robert's first series, Sentinels of Creation, was written as contemporary fantasy, his second series, Paradigm 2045, leverages the hard science side of his experiences. In addition to Paradigm, he recently released a stand-alone paranormal romance story, One Heart that Beats for Two. Robert’s weaving of humor and character banter has become hallmarks of his writing style and is on full display throughout all these stories. Outside of Robert's business and writing commitments, he enjoys helping facilitate the collaboration between authors, cover artists, and audiobook voice actors. He is a big believer that such collaboration can make its own magic, causing an already great story to become even greater. For Robert, this magic is the product of his personal collaboration and friendship with narrator, Nick Podehl and Greek artist, George Patsouras. Robert lives in Atlanta with his wife, kids, and about eleven different Apple products. He is a fierce advocate for children with special needs, their parents, and the local organizations that support both.Read more Read less
