the magic of storytelling

About Bob Gillen

Hi and welcome. Glad to have you here.

I love books, movies, storytelling. I write novels for young adults. Short novels, easy to read in our busy world. My characters are inspired by people I have known throughout my life, as well as senior high school students I have taught in my media production class for 11 years. The teens were a constant source of inspiration for me. All striving to find their voices, to find their places in the world.

Storytelling makes the world go round. I really believe this. Story moves us forward. Gives us hope and courage. Helps us find our way. I have been a book lover since I was a kid.

Recently I enjoyed reading the Virals series by Kathy and Brendan Reichs. All about a group of teen friends caught up in exciting adventures. Years back I read and re-read John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley, describing his crosscountry drive in search of America. I live in the Los Angeles area, after being born and raised in New York City.

I write for those who love books, and for those who may be new to the world of books.

I hope you enjoy my stories. Thanks for stopping by.
