Robert D. Vaughan


I have always been a storyteller. Whether around the dinner table, beside the fire, at the bar or on the street, I always enjoy sharing a tale with whatever audience I happen to have captive at that particular moment. As a child growing up in the Foreign Service, my stories of wild adventures in exotic locales have become the stuff of personal legend (and in the case of my wife, wild eye-rolls) as I revisit a host of strange and mysterious tales with every passing victim. As I grew older and took the time to ponder them in greater depth, I eventually came to realize that the central thread of them all was the curious and truly serendipitous nature of each and every one, the host of strange and mysterious circumstances that somehow came together for their unlikely resolution.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My dogs nagging me to get them their breakfast; my first cup of coffee; and rejoining my imaginary friends on their ongoing adventures in a place I call 'Waimea'.
What is your writing process?
I have ideas flying about at random all the time. Some I jot down, others I just file away in my brain for the future. I have key plot points in mind and often put them in order of appearance- a loose version of an outline. Then, I just write. The story plays out in almost cinematic fashion- action, dialogue, sights, smells, etc.The joy of writing for me is the spontaneity of the experience. Stuff comes from who knows where and more often than not I just go for it. I love the poetical nature of my writing, and savor each phrase as I put it into place. Afterward, I come to my senses and with a heavy sigh I go through and edit, embellish or eliminate, depending on the need.
