About The Author


Robert Steven Goldstein was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1952. He has practiced Yoga, meditation, and vegetarianism for over forty years.

Mr. Goldstein and his wife Sandy now live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and have lovingly shared their home with parrots, dogs, cats, rabbits, and turtles. Their daughter is married and lives in Texas.

Prior to becoming a novelist, Mr. Goldstein enjoyed a successful, thirty-five year career in the corporate sector in executive level roles in healthcare information, and later as a consultant to charitable foundations and nonprofit organizations.

When he is not writing fiction or practicing Yoga, Mr. Goldstein enjoys morning hikes with his dogs, books about animal intelligence, vegetarian cooking with his wife, wine tasting in Napa and Sonoma, and an occasional game of golf.
