Member Since
May 2009

Robert Ronsson lives in the Severn Valley with his wife Valerie. They have three children and two grandchildren. Robert retired early from his career in financial services to start writing full-time.
His first novel No Mean Affair was the result of research into his father's belief that he was the illegitimate son of a famous Glasgow politician.
Robert's interest in cinema led him to write Out of Such Darkness which was inspired, in part, by the film Cabaret. This was followed by the second in what is now The Movie Series of novels, Once Upon a Time in Chinatown.
Robert and Valerie help run a community cinema in their town.

"Easily readable and sufficiently enjoyable to finish it in a few days. A couple of nice pieces, and an interesting end, but not much else to recommend it - light and pleasant but not at all thought provoking. "

Robert Ronsson Thanks, Magenta. I noticed that you'd 'liked' a couple of my reviews and thought we should be friends. We don't have any books in common yet! I still find it difficult to navigate this site so I'm having trouble finding your reviews. Could you send me a link so I can cut the scrabbling around!

Majenta Hello, Robert! Thanks for contacting me , Friend Request Accepted! Congratulations on your books. I wish you a happy life with your family, may everybody keep well. Happy reading, writing, and everything else. Blessings!

Best wishes from Majenta
