Robert C Auty

Robert C Auty portrait image to appear alongside the Robert C Auty biography.

Robert enjoyed reading fantasy fiction for years before first trying his hand at writing in 1998. Rather than Tolkien, it was his favourite authors David Gemmell and David Eddings that have given him inspiration for his novels.

Originally from Lancashire, he spent his formative years in Canada before returning to England where his family settled in the village of Heysham, Lancashire. Robert now lives on the edge of the Lake District.

Outside of his work, as a manager with a distribution company, and alongside his writing, Robert enjoys the outdoors, photography and his recent passion - beekeeping.

In 2007, with The Siege of Scarn, Robert was runner-up in the Spinetinglers Book of The Year competition for Dark Fiction.
