Biography's Source:

Rob N. Hood has worked for the past twenty-seven years as an advocate for troubled youth. He began his career when still in high school, serving as a street contact for a runaway shelter. It was during his time as a worker at a detention facility for delinquent youth that he began writing stories for the residents. When kids began asking for sequels, Rob knew he had discovered a way to communicate and connect with troubled kids.

Rob has served as a mediator for his own truancy program and provided wake-up calls and escorts to schools for a wide mix of alternative students. In his role as a guest artist with agencies that provide car for emotionally disturbed youth, he has also developed programs that deal with conflict resolution and delinquency prevention. As an English/Drama instructor, he once produced and directed a substance abuse program which had an impact on 15,000 at-risk kids. He believes, though, that his greatest accomplishment can be summed up in the words of one troubled boy who wrote to him while confined in an institution. "Discovered your book today. It was like reading a letter you wrote directly to me. Thanks for giving me hope."

Rob currently makes his home somewhere in the Midwest, and is always busy at work on another book.
