After completing college and a two year tour of duty in the Army, award winning author Rob Wood followed in the footsteps of his forefathers and spent several decades cowboying in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Pursuing a calling to dude ranching, producing rodeos and ranch real estate allowed him to fulfill many of his childhood dreams. Rob honed his storytelling skills around campfires of the Rocky Mountain west.
Rob’s first book of short stories, “The 5 Greatest Spankings of All Time” was published in 2012 to critical acclaim. The Texas Association of Authors awarded it First Place in the Short Story Fiction category of their 2012 Literary Awards. Rob’s new book “Let’s Scare Mom” unfolds around those original tales and continues to pack the tastes and smells of the 1950’s into his humorous and very personal stories.
Aside from writing, Rob enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, cooking indoors as well as over an open fire and riding a good horse along the Continental Divide. Rob, his wife Ellen and their dogs Babe and Casey currently live outside of Dallas, Texas.

A talented writer who uses words well. He creates the time and space many of us remember and leaves us to fill in the blanks. His subtlety of language is well defined and clever. His detail of the offences are expansive but the detail of the retribution minimal. Hence for those looking for such detail, considering the title, they will be disappointed as this is not what this is about. It is more about a time and place that once existed for us baby-boomers that exists no more. In these words most of us like minded generation will recognise many of our own thoughts and hopefully realise our children will write of their time, as Rod has his, with the same passion and endearment as he has.
