Award winning author, Robert Child, is a master of action, pacing and cinematic storytelling in his visually gritty thrillers. Military history is one of his passions and runs through his veins. His Great-grandfather, Thomas W. Child, was cited for courage by his commander, Joseph Hayes, at the Battle of Fredericksburg fighting for the Union in 1862. Sergeant Child charged the stonewall not once but twice with the 18th Massachusetts and survived to fight on Little Round Top at Gettysburg.

Not to be outdone Rob's 4th Great-grandfather, Jonas Child, fought for American Independence at the first bloody engagement of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. Jonas went on to fight beside Gen. George Washington at the Battle of Dorchester Heights and served till the end of the war in 1781.

Rob possesses that rare ability to transport readers almost instantly into gripping, intelligent page-turning narratives that feature well developed characters and cinematic action that jumps off the page like a major motion picture.

He has won more than 25 awards for writing and aside from his regularly published independent works he is currently authoring a new WWII novel with coauthor, Denise George, which will be published by Random House / Penguin in the fall of 2016.
