About Robert Wingfield

Robert Wingfield used to sleep in IT Security in a large organisation between 9 and 5 each day, (except on Fridays when they woke him at 4 and sent him home early), but he finally got tired with this taxing routine, and left his job for good. A prolific writer, to date he has twenty works, electronically and in paperback, available through various outlets—all can be tracked through

His work is multi-genre: There are a set of satirical sci-fi novels, 'The Dan Provocations', hopefully having you laughing out loud (or cringing, when you realize how closely satire matches reality), the Gothic horror 'Ankerita' series (The Seventh House) featuring a Tudor woman reborn in modern times, and several travelogues in the 'One Man in a Bus' series.

For the younger reader, 'The Mystery of the Lake' and 'the Mystery of the Midnight Sun' have a Swallows and Amazons feel, and are suitable for even your grey-haired old great-aunt, and 'The Adventures of Stefan' kick off with 'Stefan and the Sand Witch', a modern day fairytale, and Stefan and the Spirit of the Woods, an eco-fairytale.

And then, he has produced 'Everyone’s Guide to not being an Old Person', a gentle satire on what people do when they get old, and how to avoid it. An ideal present for those elderly relatives, who drive you slightly nuts, but you love to bits.

For those aspiring authors, he runs The Inca Project, a set of free resources to help you get your works into print. He also provides formatting and editing services through the project, to ensure you get the best result from your masterpiece. See

His other interests include digital forensics, nature and building conservation, photography, and resisting emotional blackmail from his Labrador.
