As a veteran of active operational duty, Rob draws on his experience to bring authenticity to his stories, immersing the reader in gritty and unforgiving historic realism.
Rob is supported by a superb professional editorial team and an exemplary graphic designer. His third novel, Yet Another General, was released in March 2022. Rob is currently writing the fourth adventure in the series, Neither Up Nor Down.
Rob is a member of the Napoleonic Historical Society, the Historical Novel Society of Australasia, the Australian Society of Authors and the Queensland Writers Centre.
