Bob S can write in any style that is required, even producing a few legal documents in the past. However, his main style is conversational, easy to read and follow. This applies to novels, training documents, product reviews and social media posts.
Bob S's first love is reading, and any book, fact or fiction, regardless of subject, will be given a fair chance, and undoubtedly devoured and reread at a later date. Even subjects that are not his top preferences (such as Western and Romance) will still get a look, although military history, crime and science fiction are his true passions. He is known to war-game and role-play, draw, play strategy computer games, as well as listen to a variety of music, from rock to classical. He enjoys learning, and spreading his knowledge, and is passionate about the environment.
Bob S attended Queen Mary's College not quite sure where his work career would start. Playing it safe, he chose Computers (everyone uses them now), Math (good proof of analytical skills) and History (the lessons of history can be applied to the present and future). This skill set gave him many different options, which was invaluable when career changes were necessary in the future.
Bob has written countless training documents and manuals for the various companies he worked for. Using only the assumption that the user could use a mouse and keyboard, he wrote these manuals in such a simple, easy to use, step by step format that anyone would be able to read and understand the product. This led to him having to write business reports as well, summarizing key service and financial information in an easy to understand format.
As a father and step-father, Bob S has seen the Kids/Family world from the inside, through good times and bad. Personal experience and countless hours of research into all aspects of this "industry" allow him to be knowledgeable about many things, and that which he does not know in depth, he will endeavor to learn well enough to sound like an expert. He particularly focuses on bullying, and how to identify and prevent it, along with ways to cope and repair the psychological damage.
Bob S has plenty of 'Other' experience, from the knowledge picked up in his various careers, to the research done for writing projects (and for fun). While not the most elegant way to format this, a list of skills and knowledge sets are shown below:
Computer Hardware Support
Sales and Marketing
Military History (particularly WWII)
Military Tactics (various eras)
World Political History (post 1945)
Data Entry/Data Collation/Data Reporting
American Currency (Present and historical)
Medieval Ship Building
Construction (various eras)
Call Center Operations
Space Travel/Space Technologies
Recycling and Green Technologies
This list is not all inclusive, and Bob S has shown, with a little research, he can become expert enough in any subject to convince a layman of his knowledge.
Bob has two novels published so far, the first being a Science Fiction action and suspense saga called Prison Scorpion. This is set in the future on a remote planetoid, with a group of political prisoners wanting to escape and spread the word about the brutality of the government. It took Bob about a year to put this together, and he has followed this with his second novel, titled Serial Blogger, a gripping serial killer mystery.
Bob S has no published works in this industry, but through more than a decade of providing software support to manufacturing firms, as well as hands on experience in a variety of environments, this has given him a wide knowledge of the industry. With his proven skills as an author, he has the ability to translate this knowledge into any type of written work about the industry.
While Bob S does not have any published works relating to Office work, he has spent more than 15 years working in a variety of office environments. The vast majority of this time was spent providing technical support to people working in all aspects of the office environment. This has shown him some of the best and worst that office life can bring, which coupled with his writing skills would allow him to write about almost any office topic.
Bob S loves to read, and wants others to love it too. With this in mind, he has approached writing with the aim of producing novels with many different styles and subjects, to appeal to a wider audience. He knows that the best way to keep someone reading is to have a light, easy flowing style, which coupled with fascinating plots, draws the reader to the enjoyable conclusion.
