Robert Shroud


I could regale you with a biography which would include snippets of my life. I could highlight for you over forty years of both accomplishments and failures. Well, maybe not failures. I’ve never read an ‘about the author’ that included falling out of a tree in their youth.

I have no grandiose yarns to spin here. I am just a guy who has always wanted to be a writer. I have been writing off and on since the age of twelve. What I want to do more than anything is concentrate on delivering you, the reader, quality works. If I can do that, then I believe over time you will come to know more about me than you ever wanted to.

Robert Shroud.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
My introduction to writing came at the hands of my 6th grade Creative Writing teacher, Ms. Newman. I remember having a crush on her. But, then, what 6th grade boy doesn't have a crush on their teacher?
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first thing I ever wrote was a poem about God in the sixth grade. Yes, Ms. Newman's class :) I remember reading it at an assembly, as it was one of the few chosen by her for the honor. It questioned his existence and included the normal ramblings of a confused child. Though I am a somewhat more confident these days of the existence of a higher being, my writing still questions his existence, but now includes the ramblings of a confused adult.
