J. Robert Kennedy wrote his first story when he was five.
Everyone in it died.
Things didn't get much better from there. After horrifying his teachers in creative writing classes he took an extended hiatus, returning to writing on a whim, haunted by the image of a woman standing in tall grass, the blades streaming through her fingers. The result was a short story, Does It Matter?, written in a single evening.
And then he let it sit.
A couple of years later he let several friends read it and they encouraged him to try and get it published. He submitted it to The Sink and it was immediately accepted. Encouraged, he wrote a second story, Loving the Ingredients, and it too was accepted, along with a reprint of Does It Matter? by The Writers Post Journal.
With several publishing credits under his belt, he was ready for something bigger. A phone conversation with a best friend led to Robert writing his first novel, The Protocol. Lachesis Publishing, the first publisher he sent it to, agreed to publish it and cloud nine got a little more crowded.
Robert was born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, and grew up an Air Force brat, living in Halifax and Greenwood, Nova Scotia, Goose Bay, Labrador, Lahr and Baden, Germany, and finally Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. He attended university in Waterloo and settled in Ottawa, Ontario. Robert has a wife and daughter, and is hard at work on his next novel.
