A Bit About Me

I write Science Fiction and Steampunk, some for Young Adult Readers (as R B Harkess) but I use Robert Harkess for everything else.


I wrote my first story in Mrs Ball's class when I was about seven, and I used writers' block to get out of an assignment for the first time the same year. It took several swings at writing before I felt I was becoming an author, starting from about sixteen years of age, but somehow it never felt quite right.


I did write a 140,000 word fantasy novel when I was in in my late thirties, but it still wasn't quite what I wanted.


In  2008, my first short story was published and things seemed to click. Now - well in 2019 as I write this - I have nine novels in print (not all in my name).


Writing is never a journey you really finish, but I've certainly taken the first steps.
