Rob Easton is long time writer of short stories, poetry and roleplaying adventures for his friends and family. Caught between the twin passions of reading and writing, Rob focuses his energies on writing short pieces that he can then mine for adventure with his companions. Rob earns his living as a mathematician and pension consultant, and prior to that he worked as a software developer at a military pilot training facility. While earning a bachelor degree in applied mathematics, he was compelled to sneak in a minor degree in English literature. Rob also ran a college level writers guild, helping fellow writer's polish their skills and perform their works in public and on television. He always thought that he would begin publishing fiction after retirement, but having recently begun friendships with several professional writers, Rob has decided to take his craft to the inevitable level sooner rather than later.
Rob is currently living in the environ of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with his wife and daughter and a varying number of black cats. Rob is a member of IFWA (ifwa.ca), a speculative fiction writing group.
