After an early fling in the motion picture industry and a long and successful career in academia, I retired in 2010. With my desire to play major league baseball no longer a realistic dream, I chose to fulfill my other lifelong ambition and became a writer. A member of Southwest Writers, Sisters in Crime, and the International Thriller Writers organizations, I write the Gabe McKenna mysteries for Suspense Books and maintain this blog.
My debut novel, RED GOLD won three first place awards at the 2015 New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. It garnered the Tony Hillerman Award as the Best Fiction of 2015, and was chosen as the Best Mystery of 2015 and the Best eBook. The sequel in the Gabe McKenna Mystery Series, GET LOST, will publish on March 8, 2016 and is available for pre-order from Amazon HERE. The third book, CUT.PRINT.KILL will be out sometime in 2017. All titles are from Suspense Publishing.
I reside in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my wife Annette and two cats, Otis and Woody. I have two beautiful daughters, a grandson and granddaughter.
I enjoy keeping in touch with my readers. You may contact me through my website: www.robertkiderabooks.com.
