Rob Kelley is a Canadian author of both fiction and non-fiction books. He grew up in a small northern gold mining town called Timmins, Ontario. He worked six summers underground in one of the area's gold mines in his teens and early twenties to earn money for university. "I always loved school. So much fun stuff to get involved in. My first memorable writing experience was in grade four. On Friday afternoons, our teacher, Miss Anderson, would allow us to present one-act plays for the class's entertainment, if we each donated ten cents to the Red Cross jar. So on Thursday nights, my buddy, Jack Watson and I would lie on his bedroom floor, along with the cat, and scribble up four or five pages of storyline and dialogue to present to the class the next day. It was great fun."
Rob spent his working career in Hamilton, Ontario where he worked as a teacher, business department head, computer education consultant and textbook author. He loves writing romance suspense, international suspense thrillers, cosy small town mysteries and self-help books. Favorite authors: John Grisham, James Patterson (with Maxine Paetro), David Baldacci, Janet Evanovich and Agatha Christie.
