Robert Stetson

Publisher info

Since having retired, I have added creative writing to my many pursuits. Topics for fictional novels and short stories revolve around science.

Back in the day when my systems engineering career was in full swing, I was caught up in the publish or perish philosophy. It was the birth of my compulsion to write. Since then there have been many more publications and
some novels.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Desk? My entire writing and publishing world is inside my computer. I back it up every couple of weeks and invest heavily in anti-spyware and virus protection. I recommend Norton 360 and Acronis Software.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on welfare and wore clothing with holes in them. As a kid I was always into science and was known around town as Doctor Bob.
All I ever did was read.
