Rob lives and works in beautiful Devon, is married to Gemma, with three grown up children, Bruno the dog and some chickens. As foster carers, together they have gained insight into the impact of trauma on children, and have seen that rebuilding a life takes endless patience, full acceptance, love and care, and there is always room for second chances. It is this experience that part inspired the context for Beneath the Tamarisk Tree.
A keen reader, after a few years of complaining that he could never find enough Christian flavoured novels, he felt challenged to have a go at writing one for himself. Beneath the Tamarisk Tree is his first novel.
