For three decades, Robert Digitale has been a newspaper reporter in Santa Rosa, California. In those years, he has gone to Texas to write about public schools and high-stakes testing.
He has been trounced at tennis by the late "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz; and has had President Barack Obama (then a U.S. senator) put a hand on Robert's back in order to prevent a collision. (He still has the historic sports coat.) Robert has covered City Hall, education, commercial salmon fishing and, more recently, real estate and Sonoma County agriculture.
For the last year, he has hosted Digitale Stories, a young adults' blog for sharing great stories. The blog appears on The Santa Rosa Press Democrat's news website, www.pressdemocrat.com.
For the release of his new novel, HORSE STALKER, Robert is donating $1 to Sonoma County school groups for every print and ebook copy purchased in Sept. and October. (More information can be found at horsestalker.com.)
Robert and his wife Carol have created their own publishing company, Franklin Park Press. They have three daughters.
