About the Author:

After returning from World War II Pacific Navy service in 1946, Robert Fowler entered college with intentions of becoming a lawyer. Through the influence of his girlfriend Beverly Utley, however, he became interested in journalism and wound up with a degree in English.

The influential young lady became his wife. Fowler became a reporter and assistant city editor on the Greensboro (NC) Daily News. He gained a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University and went on to work for a couple of years as city editor of The St. Petersburg (FL) Times. In 1956 Fowler moved to Pennsylvania to write editorials for the Harrisburg Patriot-News.

Except for a six-month stay in England, the Fowlers have lived in Cumberland County in central Pennsylvania ever since. In 1960 Fowler formed a magazine company to publish Civil War Times, a hobby sheet for Civil War buffs. Historical Times, Inc., eventually became a $25 million-dollar-a-year company publishing seven nationally circulated magazines (Civil War Times, American History Illustrated, Early American Life, British Heritage, Fly Fisherman, Country Journal, and Bow-hunter). The company was sold to Cowles Media in December 1986 with Fowler remaining as Chairman of the Board until his retirement in 1988.

Beginning in 1984, Fowler and his family also owned Swank-Fowler Publications which published four weekly newspapers. Swank-Fowler also owned Anglo-American publishing Ltd., a subsidiary that circulated British magazines in the United States and published historical booklets.

Fowler, meanwhile began writing novels in 1974. The popular and highly acclaimed Jim Mundy: A Novel of the American Civil War, was published in 1977. Four more historical novels followed. A sixth, Annie Mundy, will be published in 2001 by Stealth Press.

The Fowlers have four children and six grandchildren.
