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.

Look for additional works coming soon!

Trying Out an Internet Giveaway from Cord Cutter News

Robert Bennett I posted this on Facebook and am going to do a blog post on it soon but I thought Goodreads readers and fans might be interested as well.

I'm working on a novel about Louisiana that I hope to have finished in time for the NSU/Natchitoches Folklife Festival this summer. While doing some research I went to my family tree on Ancestry.com and decided to take one line back a little further.

All the trees in my family tree have people in Louisiana for a hundred years or more but this one line went back even further.

I was elated (good word huh?) when I discovered my 7th great grandfather was Louis Antoine Juchereau de St. Denis, the founder of my hometown of Natchitoches, La.

His tomb is actually underneath a store on Front Street, adjacent to the bridge. A church used to stand where the store is now.

I guess that explains why Natchitoches is the only place that truly feels like home!
