About the Author

Robert Hodum

Author Info


     The author studied in the University of Bolivariana and the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia and traveled extensively through this Andean country, as well as Ecuador and Peru. His adventures during those years can be found in his memoir, Conversations on La Playa: A Gringo’s Tales of Medellin. Available through iUniverse and Amazon.

     Hodum’s many trips to Spain inspired him to walk the pilgrimage route and investigate the life of Saint James the Greater. His work Pilgrims’ Steps: A Search for Spain’s Santiago and An Examination of His Way explores the life of Saint James and examines the history of his ancient pilgrimage route. Available through iUniverse and Amazon.

     Catching Winds North, a collection of the author’s poetry, celebrates the seasons and beauty of Long Island, nature’s mysteries, and the joys and conundrums of life. His reflections on his life in Colombia, and travels to Ecuador, Peru, and Nicaragua appear in the original Spanish with English translations. Available through iUniverse and Amazon.

     Adventures of a Latchkey Kid recounts his memories and adventures as a young boy growing up on Long Island in the early 1960s. The author found his love for story telling, a taste for adventure, and a strong sense of the lyrical in farmers’ fields, blue summer skies, and the cool shadows of the woods of oak and maple that formed the landscape of his childhood.

     Hodum’s most recent work, Bone Dust, is a collection of tales of horror, suspense, magic realism, and the supernatural world. The author’s personal experiences with the inexplicable find expression in these short stories with psychological twists and frights that highlight the unsettling lives of characters that inhabit eerie and sinister worlds.
