Meet Robert Ford

I am a married man with two grown children, and I teach Cambridge Global Perspectives at a local middle school. I began to take writing seriously during my high school and college years, as I wrote and illustrated comic books that sold locally before turning to work on writing novels. I published my first book, Christlike, in 1996 and my second, The World of Hek, Book One: Forever in 2010. I enjoyed the wish-granting demon named Hek so much that I wrote more in the series with the titles Savior (2011), Tales of Love & Revenge (2013), and First Wish (2020). I have also written a comedy screenplay, The Curse of the Translucent Monster (in color) in 2013 and the inspirational A Christmas Burglary (2017). One of my proudest achievements, however, is that my writing has inspired my daughter to pursue her own career, too.
