About the Author

Robert Miss has pursued a media, marketing, and philanthropy career throughout

his adult life. But the single, continuous thread dating back to the first grade has been poetry and storytelling. Rob earned a degree from Fordham University, majoring in classic literature and philosophy. He felt that this prepared him to be a Renaissance prince, but those days were over. So he set out to update his skills with a graduate degree in journalism and communications from University of North Carolina School at Chapel Hill. While there he entered the public television field, producing programs, and helping to build and manage the NC statewide public TV network.

Rob received recognition from the Arvon International Poetry Award in the 1980s when the late Ted Hughes as one of the judges awarded Rob an Honorable Mention for his poem, Take the Train to Paradiso. He has been published several times in America, the Jesuit public affairs and literary weekly and The Lamp, published by the Franciscan Friars at Graymoor.

Rob has run five marathons and many half marathons in the U.S. and abroad,

as well as kayaking on the Hudson River and Delaware rivers. He writes frequently about his boyhood experiences on the Potomac River and exploring the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland.
