Me with Author Joe Badal, Anne Hillerman, and Judith Van Giesen (my publisher)


At the Awards Banquet for the 2014 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards, Rob and three other authors were awarded the Tony Hillerman Prize for Best Fiction.  This was completely unexpected, since the nominees for the award had not been previously announced.

Rob says he felt honored and deeply touched by the award.  Tony had invited him to his weekly poker game a few times and once asked him to fill in for a reading of a Hillerman children’s book to a first grade class.


The next installment of the Warbonnet Series is available now!

Enjoy the first 3 chapters of WARRIOR HEARTS


Public Notice:

Rob's thriller Saving Lincoln has been honored with a nomination for the Sue Feder Historical Mystery Award.

Rob’s friend Steven Horn, author of the outstanding return from Vietnam novel, Another Man’s Life (see Rob’s review on Amazon.com), reports:  My newest novel, The Pumpkin Eater, was released on October 31st.  We've had several signings, radio and TV interviews and other promotional activities and sales have been good so far.  Kirkus gave it a very positive review and Craig Johnson wrote a nice blurb for me.  This book is the first in a new series:  A Sam Dawson Mystery. 

Rob says Steven is too modest to point this out, but in addition to that Kirkus review and Craig Johnson’s endorsement, The Pumpkin Eater has been earning straight five-star reviews on Amazon.
