Robert Winter is a recovering lawyer who likes writing about hot men in love much more than drafting a legal brief. Once upon a time, he went to Georgetown University law school. Upon graduation, he moved to New York to work in a large law firm, but later returned to Washington, DC. The legal work was entertaining and Robert spent a lot of time in bankruptcy court, usually representing either groups of creditor or the debtors themselves. But legal work didn’t satisfy the urge Robert felt to tell stories.
When he turned 50, Robert left behind the (allegedly) glamorous world of international law firms and bankruptcy court to pursue his real passion. Now he spends time in Washington, in Provincetown, in coffee shops and libraries and yurts (OK, he made that up). He finds those are better places to dream up ways to torment his characters until they realize they are perfect for each other.
Robert is off to a great start as a noteworthy author:
Every Breath You Take won Best Gay Suspense Novel from the 2017 Rainbow Awards and came in at #2 in Best Gay Book.
September was a finalist for Best Gay Debut Novel, and a runner-up for Best Gay Book and Best Gay Contemporary Novel.
