BioGrowing up in the Pacific Northwest [Hoquiam, Washington], Robert L. Slater wanted to be an astronaut or a rock star. At 42, he gave up those dreams to become a writer of science fiction and fantasy, where he can pretend to be both.
Like some of his characters, he has a propensity for speaking in lines from 80s movies, drinking Mountain Dew and eating pizza. He loves music as a listener, a zealous fan, a guitar player, and a singer/songwriter.

They may escape into the wilderness to find a place of safety as civilization dies around them, but can they escape each other and their pasts?
TOILS AND SNARES is a parallelequel to Cygnus award winner ALL IS SILENCE. It starts slightly before chronologically and ends a bit after, but it tells a smaller story with more details about the pandemic the caused Deserted Lands.
