About Robert Smith

Robert Smith (A.K.A. TyCobbsTeeth) hails from Prince Edward Island (off Canada's east coast).
On this small island, ocean waves drive hard against red cliffs. So, with fears that the sandstone island might soon melt into the Atlantic, Robert finished his studies in Information Technology and moved to Canada's capital.

Robert has worked in network design, administration and security. He recently transitioned from a job managing a digital forensics team to Enterprise Architecture. That's his day job. At night, he writes.

This author writes thrillers (psychological, suspense, crime and horror). Pick one up if you like that sort of thing.

Robert's latest book, What Lies Within, is being sold by Black Rose Writing and is available on Amazon.

He came up with the pseudonym after reading a story back in 1999. A woman named Karen Shemonsky bought the dentures of Ty Cobb, a former Major League Baseball center-fielder, at a Sotheby's auction for $7,475. The bizarre purchase inspired him to read up on Cobb--who he learned was arguably the greatest baseball player of all time. Because his goal is writing stories with bite, he felt that the moniker fit.
Since he published Society for Supper in 2015, he met the sports expert, David Goodwillie from Sotheby's auction house—the guy who sold Ty Cobb's dentures to Karen Shemonsky! David reached out to Robert through GoodReads after reading his author profile. How awesome is that?

This story has a very real element to it the way terrible things start to happen and the way the characters react to it. It's very plausible and seems accurate when you think about it.

With apocalypse stories being so popular, you might think this plotline would be done more often. This scared me because it seemed so real. The zombie stuff is scary but deep down you know it's not going to happen, but this (starvation) could actually happen.

Review by: Mike White on May 8, 2016 :
This story does a great job of demonstrating the fact that the world really does seem to fall apart all at once in a disaster. You can be casually going about your morning routine, and suddenly your entire world changes. The author gives plenty of details about the protagonist, so we have a sense of what kind of life he had before this all happened. It's also good to see a story about food scarcity, as opposed to energy scarcity. They're both problems that could destroy life as we know it.

The author clearly demonstrates the fact that it is a dog-eat-dog world, but it takes cooperation to survive and succeed. In my humble opinion this short story and its big brother, Society for Supper, have all the elements required to literally own the Thriller & Suspense category here on Smashwords.

Society for Supper was a great story, so I brought down a copy of the author's other book, Breakfast is Severed. Although is says it serves as an appetizer for the novel, it stands on its own nicely. This too dumps you into the deep end of action right off the bat, which is where you stay for the whole quick read. I literally did not set this down.
Another two thumbs up and I would definitely read more from this author.

I discovered this author via a Goodreads giveaway for his novel, Society for Supper. I decided to read this short story first and fell in love with his writing. Vivid scenes, three dimensional characters, and breakneck speed adventure. This short read had me enthralled and I read it in one sitting.
Because I normally don't win any Goodreads giveaways, I went ahead and purchased a hard copy of the novel. The novel btw--is amazing.

I'm hooked and waiting for more.
This gets a definite two thumbs up recommendation from me.

I read this book (in 2014) prior to reading the novel Society for Supper. This is a fantastic shortstory and a great lead-in for the follow-up novel.
I loved it.

Stay Hungry! ;-)
