Biographical Sketch

Robert Lopshire was born April 14, 1927, in Sarasota, Florida. He became a freelance artist and illustrator, and has received many painting awards for his realistic still lifes and landscapes. He began his writing career when, as an art director in the Random House Beginner Book project, he decided he could write better material than most of the submitted manuscripts he had to read.
