Robert Bennett was born in Louisiana and spent his childhood there and in Texas.
His diverse work history has taken him across the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean as well as England, and his books are shaped by the people he has known and the places he has visited.
"If I write about a place, it's because I've visited there and either the place or the people left an impression", Bennett said when asked about the inspirations for his books.
He currently resides in Texas with his wife Karren, his Jack Russell Terrier "'Sup", and occasionally his kids as they return from college on breaks. He also spends a lot of time answering questions for his daughter, who lives in Austin, since she has learned to use Google Chat.
Look for additional works coming soon in the "Junebug" and "Noah Chance" series.
