Short biography
Robert Beatty writes imaginative fiction for middle grade and young adult readers. He lives in the forested Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina with his wife and three daughters (ages 3,12,14) who help create and refine his stories. The Beattys love to explore the beautiful Biltmore Estate, the darkened forest trails, and the creepy old graveyards where his novels take place. In the category of "write what you know," Robert has four cats, four dogs, and four horses; he loves birds and nature, history, fantasy, and period dramas. Robert's Disney-Hyperion novel "Serafina and the Black Cloak" prowls into bookstores in July 2015. In his past lives, Robert was the chairman/CTO of the highly respected literary magazine, Narrative Magazine. He was also one of the early pioneers of Cloud Computing, the co-founder/CEO of Plex Systems, and the co-founder of Beatty Robotics. In 2007, he was named an Entrepreneur of the Year.
