About the Author

Robert Bishop was born in Trondheim, Norway in 1986. He has been using his imagination as a tool since early childhood, working regularly with movies, music and writing. His journey through fantastical worlds started with role-playing games in the late nineties. Without fail finding himself in the position of 'dungeon master' (the narrator), Robert developed a knack for telling intricate stories. (That's what he told himself, at least.) Slowly but surely the stories grew too big for the confines of role-playing - that, and players never did what Robert wanted them to - and years later, the laborious process of constructing his own fantasy universe begun for real. In addition to The Noman Series, Robert also writes science fiction, and is currently working on the first of three books taking place on Zarakkan Station in The Alexandria system. You can find numerous short-stories and novellas further fleshing out these universes both here on Amazon and on his home page. FROM THE AUTHOR: "I was born in '86, so some people will probably claim I'm too young to know anything about anything, but I'll wager I know at least a few things about something. I guess this is the part where I say that I didn't choose writing; it chose me, but that would be a load of crap. I've been doing creative work my entire life, taping radio-shows on my Disney-cassettes as a kid and making rap-songs on my Casio keyboard. Later, I started playing synthesizer in a band, before moving on to the piano. It was roughly at this time I started making movies; scripting, directing and starring. (This is starting to read like the biography of a porn-star isn't it?) It wasn't until 2008 I started writing properly, but it was the thing that stuck. I like pushing boundaries both in my work and in my personal life, and like any dad worth his salt, I'm constantly trying to be funny about it. My creative progress mostly consist of banging my head against the wall, and I am by absolutely no means a master when it comes to crafting stories and intricate narratives. It's a tough process and it takes a lot of work, but the end result is most often worth it. In conclusion, I'm a writer at heart, and I pour every bit as much of my soul, even more, into my writing as I do with everything else. Oh, and of course I'm a coffee addict, like most would-be writers. Do I have a way with words? I don't know, you tell me!"
