About - Robert Southworth

About Me

I was born and raised in a small village in the midlands of England. I have enjoyed a varied working life, from my first job as a box boy at a hosiery firm to senior team for a retail company. In between, I have been a soldier, engineer and sole trader. I started writing professionally late in life but was lucky enough to have my first novel accepted by a traditional publisher. 

After, looking at the publishing trade in general, I decided that I prefer to have control over all aspects of the creative process. However, if the right offer came along, then I am of course open to discussions. Seven further novels have been completed and I am delighted with that decision. Not least because it gives me the opportunity to move between genres. I am equally at home writing historical fiction, epic fantasy fiction or dark crime fiction.

I was able to sit down and interview the author – well sort of as he’s on one side of The Pond and I’m on the other. Thanks Robert for taking the time for a few questions.
