Robert Warr


Robert Warr was born in the South of Africa on New Year’s Day, a fact that was reported in the local paper. This was his last brush with any type of fame.

A good education was followed, eventually, by an engineering degree, and having tried the army and the police force (as a reservist in both cases) he went into the world of industry. This industrial career was mercifully cut short following an accident while playing cricket in India. As a part of his physiotherapy, he started writing again and found a satisfaction in fiction that no management meeting could ever match.

A natural volunteer he has been a Territorial Soldier (Army reservist), Special Constable, National Trust Warden and is now a Steward at Christchurch Priory.

Having had animals all his life the Author lives in Bournemouth and is currently owned by a Bengal cat who graciously shares his time with a Labrador and a ginger tom.

So far he has published:
The Barker’s Dozen: Reminiscences of an Early Police Dog
Death of a Prawnographer

And has co-written, with Paul Sims:
Sunset in Silvana
Twilight in Telphania.

These books are currently available on Amazon but are being converted to Smashwords format.

Later this year I will be publishing:
The Barker’s Dozen: On the Other Paw
Ghost Stories of an Erudite Man.

The Barker's Dozen recounts twelve cases of Inspector Richard Thompson, of Scotland Yard, as told by Snuffles, his dog. The cases range from murder to dognapping. The prose style is entertaining and manages to capture the feel of the period, a time before forensics when it was only a detective's prowess that led to an arrest. A romantic subplot, unobtrusively, ties the cases into a novel.
