Robert Gammon

Robert Gammon

Robert was born in London (England), but was brought-up in Lima (Peru), studying at Markham College. He returned to England to go to Aston University in Birmingham, and later City University of London, where he earned a Master’s degree.

Aged eleven, he won a short story competition. However, his career was not in writing but in banking and finance in England, Japan and Spain, university lecturer in Spain and Saudi Arabia, head of an English department at a university in the Middle East, supervising over 100 teachers, and owner of an educational business in Spain, leading a team of 60 people. Unfortunately, he didn’t have much time for writing.

Nevertheless, his true vocation is writing. An Oxford University creative writing programme was instrumental in developing his career as a novelist.

His study of Peruvian and world history led to his historical thriller, The Titans of the Pacific, about one of the most dramatic periods in history. The sequel novel, Blessed Assassination, ends with the assassination of President Sánchez-Cerro, which took place across the street from where Robert lived in Lima.

His novels are based on exciting historical events in the countries where he has lived in Latin America, Europe, the Far East and the Middle East.

He enjoys learning languages and speaks English, Spanish, Italian, French, Japanese and some Arabic.

He is divorced, but has two marvellous daughters.
