Robert C. Mason


Robert has always had an active imagination, which he usually expressed in drawings and doodles, but it wasn't until 2007 that he actually started putting pen to paper (letters to laptop really).

Robert started out writing short stories with little life messages in them. He finished his first full length novel, The Bully Affect, in 2008, the focus of which was also a life lesson. Bullying.

A writing contest was the inspiration for his novella, The Tombstone Stranger. Written in less then two weeks and told from the prespective of a young boy growing up in the wild west the narration proved quite challenging.

"To talk with a drawl or accent is one thing, but to write that way was a lot harder then I thought it would be, but I think that is part of the charm of the story," Robert says.

His next novel, Zoey Zimmerman and the Zombie Pigeon, was nearly two years in the making. This tale of a young girl that can talk to animals also has a fundamental life lesson at the heart, friendship.

"I really enjoy writing stories for young readers. If you can keep their interest with a good story and sneak in some important messages all the better."

Robert resides in Phoenix, Arizona with his beautiful wife Jennifer, step-daughter Ashley, daughter Emma and granddaughter Haven.

  • Star Wars One on June 12, 2012

    This was a great story adn would surely fit nicely into Star Wars canon.
  • Shawn Black: Vampire Hunter on June 13, 2012

    Not a bad story, but a bit short on character and plot development. I know it is a prequel to a larger story, but this should doa bit more to establish the main character.
  • Zombie Movie on June 30, 2012

    Quick flow, easy to read. Enjoyable little story
  • The Medusa on July 02, 2012

    A good story idea but not especially well written.
  • We Don’t Plummet Out of the Sky Anymore on July 02, 2012

    Original story idea, but I didnt care for the ending. It just didnt seem to fit the creativity of the story.
  • Aftermath: Found on July 04, 2012

    Nice little intro to hopefully a good series

    Makes my 4 year old laugh
  • Red Hen on Jan. 15, 2013

    Makes my four year old laugh
  • Nine White Mice on Jan. 15, 2013

    Content was not age appropriate for my four year old.
  • I Was Attacked by a Shark on Jan. 15, 2013

    Funny story. Saying in the story that it was all on video made me want pictures included.
  • Nine White Mice on Jan. 16, 2013

    To address Mr. Levitts review of my review. The content of a parent taking the pets of a child and turning them into a cake because his own child was afraid of the pet is not appropriate content for any age of child. That is not something to be teaching children of any age. A four year old is a child and that is an age when you would start teaching phonics and we have read several of the authors other books that I have given good ratings to. As a parent, I felt this books content was not appropriate.
  • 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva: The Way of an Awakening Being on Jan. 30, 2013

    Great book. Breaks down teachings of Buddhism into very easy to understand forms. I will refer back to this text often. In gratitude. RM
