Rob Fisher was born and raised in Fairview Park, OH, a suburb of Cleveland. He is an economic consultant, and he lives in Arlington, VA, with his wife, Laura, and their three children. Rob has an undergraduate degree from Georgetown University and a graduate degree from the University of Michigan. The Wichita Kid is his first novel.
The Wichita Kid is a coming-of-age novel about golf, friendship, and family. Kevin is a fatherless 12 year-old boy, who's just moved from Kansas to the "big city" of Cleveland, OH. To help support his mother and himself, Kevin finds a job as a caddie at a local country club. This story is both humorous and touching as it involves the struggles that many of us have faced as we march into adulthood.
