About the Author

Author Info

Robert Jystad is an award-winning writer and communications law attorney, living and working in Southern California. He focused his legal career on wireless communications and served as President of the California Wireless Association. Prior to law school, Robert was an editor in New York City, working first as a production editor for Plenum Publishing, and then as a managing editor and administrative director for Professor George Fletcher at Columbia University Law School. He has graduate degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary, Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs, and UCLA School of Law. Robert has had great success with his academic writing, winning top awards at both Princeton and Columbia. He lives with his beautiful wife, Konnie, his two boujee terriers, Fendi and Prada, aptly named by their mom, and finally, his Norwegian Forest Cat, Puff, who is an awnry and really old cat, and who like a good Norwegian complained the whole time Robert was writing. Robert’s remarkable chess-mastering daughter Kaia is in medical residency at the Balboa Naval Medical Center in San Diego. She beats her dad now on a regular basis.


Resonance, Book 2 of The Nanobot Trilogy is finally here.  You can purchase the eBook from Amazon or pre-order the print version.  The launch date for the print version is March 20, 2023.  

The reviews for Book 1 were fantastic!  Book 2 should be even better! 

5 Stars. An exciting, fast-paced page turner.  I love the main character, Van Eng.  She is such a role model with her spunk, tenaciousness and commitment to purpose.

I could not put it down and read it in one day! What an amazing debut novel. 

Jystad has taken seemingly unrelated threads and woven them into a fast-paced thriller that penetrates the world of greed, intrigue and espionage among scientists and investors pursuing high stakes, lucrative, but controversial, biomedical advances…advances that can save lives…. or end them.
