Who is Robert Medak?

He has written both technical how-tos while in telecommunications, and nonfiction articles, how-to, and blog content since retirement from the company he worked for. Robert was born in San Pedro, CA, and spent most of his life in Southern California. In June of 2008, he with his wife, three dogs and three cats, moved from California to a small town in Kansas.

Robert built a website where he offers his services, and maintains five blogs. He also maintains two blogs for AllBook Reviews, and does marketing for AllBooks.

Hi, Robert, It's such a pleasure to learn more about you.

I'm with you on paying it forward. I've done a free writing for children workshop last month through the Muse Online site, and will do another one late summer.

Kathy, Thanks for featuring Robert today.
