Dr Bob Rich doesn’t actually exist, but is a figment of his computer’s imagination. Mind you, this is no ordinary computer. You can inspect its work by reading about Bob’s life in the last century at

and in this century at his blog, Bobbing Around:

There, you’ll find out that he has retired 5 times, from 5 different occupations. He still writes, and is a professional editor for several small publishers and a steady stream of writers, but his most important activity is as a Professional Grandfather. He has hundreds of grandkids all over Earth. Many first contact him with an email of desperation. His words often make a difference, and a long term friendship may start as a result.

Because he wants all these grandchildren to have a future, and a future worth living in, he is a passionate environmental and humanitarian campaigner. If you don’t want a future of beauty, harmony, compassion, caring and justice, then GO AWAY!

Currently, Bob is running a free book edit contest. One writer can earn the free edit of a full-length manuscript. Submissions are now closed. The public will soon be invited to vote for the 10 shortlisted entries. Details are at

His (currently) 17 published books uniformly attract high ratings and excellent reviews. One misguided reviewer awarded 3 stars to one book. All the rest are 5 stars, with a sprinkling of 4 stars.

The latest book, “Hit and Run” came out in May, 2018. The previous, “Guardian Angel” was published in late 2017.

So, as you can see, Bob’s computer has done a pretty good job of fooling the world. Its latest production, “From Depression to Contentment: A self-therapy guide” is currently with the publisher, and there is a science fiction series on the way.
