   Writers: Robert Rootes (1969 - , United States)  
  About the author  

Robert Rootes was born in 1969 in Rochester, New York, the youngest of five children. He spent his adolescence in upstate, rural New York. After his fatherís death in 1977, he moved to Florida with my mother, where he took up writing to escape the tropical heat and pointless peer pressure.

After a controversial return to New York to graduate high school, Robert spent a few years searching for a career until he stumbled into retail, all the while honing his writing.

The only good that came from retail was meeting his lovely wife, Carrie. Encouraging him to continue writing, Carrie has inspired Robert to look beyond the incessant rejections from literary agents and publishing houses and see his novels in print.

Following their adventurous hearts led Robert and Carrie to Alaska where their tormented lives in retail ended. Since the birth of their son, Chance Alexander in 2001, Robert has published three novels (so far.) Robert and family reside in Kotzebue, Alaska.
