ROB JOHNSON WRITING
Welcome to my corner of the writing universe
Hello and welcome to my website. I’m an author who likes to mix fact, especially historical fact with fiction. There are a lot of unsolved mysteries that go back in history as far as history goes back. What powerful secrets did the Knights Templar learn that led to them becoming the most important power in the Middle Ages? Who was the most important spy during the American Revolution known only by her code "355"? Why is the most heavily studied historical artifact ever discovered still so little understood? I like to invent answers to these and other unanswered questions, and spin a fine tale to do so.
From time to time, I may also suggest answers to other, more timely questions -- how to address the energy needs of an ever-expanding world population.
So, I hope you enjoy learning about me and my writing, and I hope you join in my community.
Welcome and Enjoy!
My Next Phase
I've always been a writer in some form. I submitted my first story to "Boy's Life" magazine when I was twelve or so. It was rejected of course, and I collected rejection slips until my career as a software engineer forced me to switch from fiction to technical articles, whitepapers, and research papers. As my retirement approaches though, I've been bitten by the fiction bug again. Combining my love of history, technology, and good storytelling, I present to you, Thoughtful Reader, the efforts of my next career.
