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?

Smashwords book reviews by Robert Smith

I was not sure where I was being taken when I started this short story, but after the author starts to build her world, the story puts its hooks into you and pulls you along.
Bodelia's character is developed nicely and the supporting characters as well. S.D. Stevens writes with passion and the story evokes emotion.
I really enjoyed this and found myself wanting more.
Cross Your Heart

I brought this on vacation with me and loved it.
Six university students pulled a school prank which got out of hand and someone had to take the fall. This story is a well written and suspenseful who-done-it that will keep you guessing. The author does a great job of painting scenes, developing characters and drawing you in.
I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves;
crime / psychological / thriller / suspense / murder / mysteries.
Sixty-Four Days, A Sea Story
on Aug. 07, 2015
It is clear that the author draws upon his personal experiences in this very vivid sea adventure. Malcolm Torres is able to put you in the moment with terrific imagery. I really enjoyed his writing style and pace. He does a great job of painting his characters onto your imagination.
This is an action adventure that is well worth the read. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
