Robert J. Marsters

Robert J.

Robert J. Marsters was raised and still lives in ‘The Black Country' in the West Midlands of the UK. Taught that hard work is the only way to live, Robert made a career in the retail furniture trade, working his way up from warehouseman to store manager. In 2014, his life took a drastic turn when his wife was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. He began to ponder the many hours wasted when, on public holidays or at weekends, he was working, leaving his wife to fill her time visiting with family or meeting friends, by herself. Always a keen reader, fascinated by fantasy and science fiction, he imagined how wonderful it would be if, when faced with adversity, one could simply wave a magic wand and make it all better. Create a new world: two moons and a pink sky. Why not? This world is his first creation... enjoy.
