Bob was born in San Rafael, Ca in 1947. He graduated from the San Rafael Military Academy and Sir Francis Drake High Shool and later, Santa Rosa Jr. College. He was a Vietnam era veteran having served overseas from 1966 to 1969. Upon his return, he went to work for the Marin County Sheriff's Dept. He was subsequently struck by a drunk driver while on duty and had to retire. He was a private investigator for awhile and did other misc. jobs. One night, while unable to sleep, "Kitters", a cat that he had in the past,popped into his mind and a story began to developed which he wrote down on paper the very next morning. Once he started writting, the pencil wouldn't stop. So started the adventures of "A Kitten Called Kitters".
