“I've always said the hardest aspect of the job of being a writer is writing. Writing is a lonely profession.” – Bob Mayer
Born on Oct. 21, 1959, Mayer is a West Point graduate, former Green Beret, bestselling author, much sought-after speaker, and the CEO of Cool Gus Publishing. He has authored over 60 novels in multiple genres, selling more than 4 million books, including three #1 series: Area 51, Atlantis, and The Green Berets.
Mayer's prolific writing encompasses both his military experience and his fascination for history, legends and mythology, though most of his novels reside within the realm of science fiction, Young Adult and suspense. He also has had a successful foray into romance writing, coming up with an interesting combination of military/romance tales. Not only did it succeed, but he now is the only male writer to reach the Romance Writers of America Honor Roll.
A native of New York City, Mayer now makes his home in Tennessee and despite his ongoing success he said he understands why writers are faced with “issues” when they put pen to paper – or fingers to keyboards.
“Completing any writing project, particularly a novel, is a daunting prospect. Many people become frozen by the prospect. Others keep waiting for the right time. Some wait for the spark of inspiration. Even experienced writers find it is easier to do anything other than actually write.”
