About the author
The author has practiced as teacher, school administrator, coach, lecturer, management trainer, business consultant, publisher, presenter, and author. Along the way, he acquired a Ph.D. and later on, a stroke that required brain surgery. When initially recovering from his stroke, Bob asked why his life had been spared (about 80% of those who experienced a similar stroke died immediately). His answer? To prevent stroke and help stroke survivors: his new life purpose.
Beyond working on his own recovery, Bob started up a stroke support group in his community and acts as a ‘You’re the Cure’ volunteer advocate at both the state and federal levels for the American Heart & Stroke Association. Continuous learning guides Bob’s life. His writing career spans business writing (a book, a chapter, and several articles); screenwriting; memoirs (over 70 unpublished pieces so far); and stroke articles published in ‘Stroke Connection’ magazine.
Bob currently resides (he has moved 35 times) in Mooresville, NC with his loving, supportive wife, Veronica and two mutually jealous shelties, Danny and Dixie. His son, Kevin, lives in Victoria, Canada, and his daughter, Laura (a model), resides on the most recent flight in or out of Charlotte.
