An avid reader since childhood, Bob White began writing during his high school years. He sold his first short story at nineteen, and has been writing ever since. After college and graduate studies Bob spent his earlier years in Christian ministry and mortgage banking. Writing, however, was never far away, resulting in more short stories, and a non-fiction book.
After his children were grown Bob began working at novel writing. Reading, however, was never far away. He devoured detective stories by John McDonald, Sue Grafton, John Kellerman, Robert B. Parker, Mickey Spillane, and of course the master of the police procedural, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Bob's first published novel, Abducted, has sold not only across North America, but in Europe, Australia, and South Africa. Two more mystery novels with the same lead detective followed. Then, last year, a novel of Christian fiction.
Bob lives with his wife and two cats near wine country in Southern California and is now working on the fourth Petrocelli mystery, Demons from the Past.
