Robert D. Coleman


Hi, my name is Robert Coleman. I was born in Waxahachie Texas and spent the first 10 years of my life there. My family then moved to Irving Texas. Where I graduated from MacArthur High School. I have been blessed with two amazing sons that I am very proud of. I have also been blessed with two grandsons that I love dearly. For the last 25 years, I have lived in Groesbeck Texas. That area has become the center of my fictional book. I was always blessed with a great imagination. My teachers said I was a daydreamer in class. I could always come up with great stories in my head. My problem was always getting it on paper. I sometimes struggle with the English language. (I suspect I am dyslexia) I was always too embarrassed to show anybody my work. until I met a wonderful woman. Who also happens to be a writing teacher. I reluctantly showed her one of my books. She read them and told me that the story was the hard part. Spelling and Grammer could be fixed. With her encouragement, I started reworking some of my stories and making new ones. Now 20 years after I put my first story on paper and almost 4 years after I started the rewrites. I have Murder and the Cold Case. I am very proud of it! I have another one almost ready and first drafts on 7 more and several ideas for more. So I hope this is the first of many. So thank you, Laura. Without your help and encouragement, this could have never happened.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was about a boy being captured by Indians and growing up with them and then returning to the white man's world
What is your writing process?
I like to think about it a lot. I like to know almost exactly how it will go. Before it put it on paper. I threw out a whole chapter one time. But that doesn't happen often.
