Rob Stone and NFL great Joe Namath both hail from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. Rob’s family moved to Florida when he was an adolescent. After attending Palm Beach Atlantic College in West Palm Beach, Rob relocated to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to pursue graduate studies at the University of Michigan. Rob’s a dyed-in-the-wool fan of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Michigan Wolverines.
A life-long interest in military history, combined with 30 years’ experience in the publishing field, inspired Rob to take the plunge and start writing in the Nineties. As an author, Rob’s interests are wide-ranging: in addition to The Tower at Petite Vigne, he is working on a murder mystery set in the American Civil War and the first volume of a projected science fiction trilogy.
Rob possesses a rich vocabulary and a lively imagination. These attributes fuel his passion for describing a person or situation with precision, choosing the right words to tell the story. His desire is to tell stories with prose that catches the eye and engages the mind.
Rob is the founder and owner of Chosen Word Copywriting and Editorial Services (www.chosenword.biz). His hobbies include collecting commemorative stamps and coins. And, for over two decades he has been a Federal infantry American Civil War re-enactor.
When a German construction unit arrives at the French village of Petite Vigne to build a flak battery, its inhabitants are forced to face the war they had kept at bay for four years. Will they settle for an undeclared truce with the occupiers? Opt to resist? Or will collaborators rise from their midst?
