Bob Haider

Biography

I grew up in Downers Grove, Illinois and I am a graduate of the University of Oklahoma where I majored in communications. One of my proudest moments came when The John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, Massachusetts accepted two shorts for inclusion in their Miscellaneous Manuscripts section.

I have authored numerous short stories and novelettes including The Adventures of Ben & Bob series as well as four full length novels---Pictures on the Wall, Whispers in the Night, The Sonoran Corridor and my latest The Game Begins.

I am the father of two lovely girls (Bonnie Leigh & Anne Marie) and have four wonderful grandchildren. I reside in Glenview, Illinois with my long time companion, Mary Ellen.
