Robert Smith hails from Prince Edward Island (off Canada's east coast). On this small island where ocean waves drive hard against red cliffs, where a redhead named, Ann haunts the house with green gables, where red potatoes, red lobster and red foxes rule, Robert was born.
He was born into the Generation-X cohort (aptly named by Canadian Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X—Tales for an Accelerated Culture).
With fears that the sandstone island might soon melt into the Atlantic, Robert finished his studies in Information Technology and moved to Canada's capital (Ottawa, Ontario).
Work-life started with network administration. Network design and network security lured Robert from job to job, after that. He then landed a position managing a digital forensics team, supporting investigations. He has not looked back—except when he hears “those voices”.

Robert draws on his experiences and from his time supporting investigations to develop characters based on the strange human behaviors he has observed. He writes thriller novels and the areas of the thriller genre that interest him most are: Psychological; Suspense; Horror; and Crime/Detective.

His first work, a short story called Breakfast is Severed, captured third place in Inkitt’s thriller writing contest. He followed that up with a novel called Society for Supper. That novel ranked number one for thriller novels on Smashwords just after its release. It then flirted with the number two spot on Amazon’s suspense/thrillers bestsellers list during a promotional giveaway. He released both works under the pen name, TyCobbsTeeth.
After spending the better part of his creative life working with visual arts, he immersed himself in writing. Robert says he has always loved getting lost in a good novel, but once he tried his hand at writing one he fell in love with it. He loved the release, and being able to lose himself in the story, yet will its direction. Creating scenes, developing characters—and then destroying them—were a new rush for him.
Soon after he finished Society for Supper, he penned What Lies Within. He will release the novel What Lies Within under his own name, and it will be available soon.

Retired from my career and writing full time now. While work on my second novel, I'm writing short stories. I aim to write my blog and one short story a day, but sometimes life intrudes and I accomplish what I can.

I'm posting some of my stories here in hope of getting some comments but so far this is a quiet place.

I am an expatriate Kiwi (New Zealander) living in the beautiful islands of The Philippines.

After a career in finance and journalism, I finally discovered what my true passion in life is - WRITING!

I now live in Manila, with my wife and two step-daughters, where I write full-time.

At age 55, I suddenly realised I had suppressed my passion and my bliss for my entire life. No more! This is my calling and my love and I will pursue it now for the rest of my life.

My first novel was a romantic fantasy about the return of Jesus Christ to modern day Manila to try and sort out the problems of the world - yet again! "The Second Coming" was published by Pentian Publishing in June 2015 and is available from Amazon, Google Play and iBooks.

My second novel "Just a Drop in the Ocean", a romance that spans two continents and a lifetime is completed and I hope to self-publish that by the end of 2015.

The sequel to "The Second Coming" - "The Rise of the AntiChrist" is also completed and currently with Pentian for publication. A tentative release date for this is December 1 2015.

The third and final book in the series; "Holy War" is my current project and I hope to finish that by Christmas 2015.
