Robert L. Beck

Biography

I’m a huge fan of cool, operative/secret agent type characters having grown up watching James Bond, Derek Flint, The Wild, Wild West, The Avengers, The Man from Uncle, and more recently, Jason Bourne and Alex Rider. When I was younger, I had read a 1960’s young adult teen spy series titled, “Chris Cool/Teen Agent,” by Jack Lancer, and I loved it. That series only lasted six books and I decided that if I would ever write a book/series it would involve an “operative” type teenage character. Since I’m originally from Canada, I made the protagonist Canadian as well. Being a romantic at heart, I also knew I wanted the book to contain a romantic element as a major part of the story-line. And finally, since I myself am a Christian, I also wanted to put Lance on a spiritual journey where he eventually comes to know God and have his sins forgiven in book 4.

When did you first start writing?
I started writing three years ago as a way of combating the boredom of my job, and my life in general.
