I’m Rob W Coates. I write fantasy and science fiction, and I am aspiring to be traditionally published. I also just began freelance commercial writing and graphics work. In the future, I will be working on some nonfiction books in the veins of “help with this topic” and self-motivation, etc. I have sales and marketing experience, so I may also write a business book for kids after seeing it requested on an agent’s profile. She’s right, they are needed, and I’ve been told I communicate well with children.
My interests outside of writing and reading include music (most genres), magical performance, martial arts, movies (superhero, comedy, sci-fi, fantasy, thriller, anything where the plot is unexpected), travel, studying other cultures, video games, anime, and board/card games (from Chess to Poker to Monopoly to Magic the Gathering to RPGs, etc.). I am addicted to gathering knowledge and curiosity fuels me.
I hope to contribute well to the forums, and I also hope I learn a lot from other writers, agents, editors, etc. who may post.
