Robert has spent too much of his life studying and has just embarked upon his seventh university degree, a PhD in Education. Robert has degrees in psychology, sociology, biology and education, all of which inspire his writing.
Robert has studied karate for twenty years and ran his own dojo in Perth before taking a seven-year break, then switching schools and becoming a student again.
Robert is kosmemophobic, meaning he has a fear of jewellery. He has no idea why, it just freaks him out.
When he was in high school, a dare escalated a little too quickly and Robert made the state final in an interpretive dance competition.
