Robert Ford has been writing fiction since elementary school. In the early 1990’s, Robert produced a short lived comic book series called The World of Hek. TWOH featured a changing cast of characters whose lives were forever altered after making seemingly innocent wishes.
Robert’s next projects were The Ledge, Christlike, The World of Hek, Book One: Forever, The World of Hek, Book Two: Savior, The World of Hek: Love & Revenge, and The Curse of the Translucent Monster! (in color). Robert is currently working on the next installment of The World of Hek series, Ease the Pain.
Robert lives in SW Florida with his wife and two children and teaches at a local elementary school. Also of importance, Robert is NOT Spider-man, so quit asking.

Just found out that my latest offering, The Curse of the Translucent Monster! (in color) is available on amazon starting today! Very exciting to have so many books out there.

Sinclair tales the tragic story of an immigrant and his family in turn of the century Chicago. I do not recall ever reading such a story with hardly ever a success for the hero. Throughout the novel, our hero, Jurgis, is able to show us the plight of ...more
Robert Ford is on page 200 of 338 of The Jungle: Great book but so tragic, like nothing I've ever read before. Interestingly, Upton Sinclair fills the first half of the book with hardly any dialogue whatsoever. As soon as things go from bad to worse though, everyone starts "talking". Still, wow, what a great book about the plights of immigrants at the turn of the century.

Robert Ford I enjoy writing The World of Hek series, showing how a simple wish can go horribly wrong (when granted by a devious but fun-loving demon of unknown origins). As a family man and a teacher, however, time is extremely too short to really excell in my publishing ventures. I find myself writing whenever I get the chance (mostly in the summer) but lack the time especially for marketing. What works the best for the rest of you busy authors out there? How do you get word of your book to the general public? Oh, and of course, The World of Hek series and The Curse of the Translucent Monster is available everywhere books are sold and both have facebook pages (and need more likes).
