Dr. Robert Carlile has been a professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He has published over 100 articles in esoteric technical journals, for which the audience was small, and his wife had no idea what he was writing about. Always having a desire to write fiction, he wrote a story which he planned to read to his four grandkids, ages 8 – 12, who came to visit and had to sleep in the same room. He sensed chaos and hoped the story would settle them down. Chaos ensued by the time he got to page 2. But what this didn’t do for the kids, it did for him. He loved the writing process and has been writing ever since. He considers his best achievement 5 Young Adult novels, the Windwalker Series, inspired by the kids in his classes, in which he has tried to capture the unique “lingo”of the gen Y kids.
