SPUNKY SENIOR AUTHORS AND TALENTS - The Forever Young at Heart

Please Welcome Professional Grandfather, Dr. Bob Rich
I am a professional grandfather. Four young people are genetically related to me, but I have hundreds of grandkids all around the planet. If you enter something like "I hate myself" in a search engine, one of my answers to such cries for help come up. I have the gift of being able to convert helplessness and despair into inner strength and hope, and many of the people I respond to keep in touch for years. They become my grandkids.
I am also the author of 14 published books, 4 of them award winners. They can be inspected at http://bobswriting.com
My genre is English. Whatever grabs my attention, and sometimes even what doesn't, ends up in my writing somewhere. This is why one of my short story collections is titled "Through Other Eyes," because in that book you can look through my eyes as I look through the eyes of 26 very different people.
Some of the people I write about are 3 feet tall, green, with three arms and legs and no head, but you'll love them anyway. These cute critters are the heroes of "Liberator," the lead story in "Bizarre Bipeds," which was a finalist in an EPIC e-book contest (don't know what was wrong with the judges in the final round).
