Online PR News – 09-December-2011 – – Herts, UK (November, 2011) – Short story author, Robert Fowler announces the release of his first novel ‘Flood’.

Born in June 1954, today author Robert Fowler is married with one daughter and lives in Hertfordshire. He left school at the age of 15 to work in a warehouse that sold plumbing and heating supplies. He still is actively running his own plumbing supplies company which was started back in the year 1988. Despite living with Ankylosing Spondylitis, Crohn’s disease and having faced four hip replacements at a young age, this has not deterred him to keep up with his love for football. He has coached and managed football for both adult and children’s teams for thirty years. Writing a book is another feather in his cap. His Italian mother and family in Florence have influenced his writing. He is most comfortable writing fiction. To date Robert Fowler has written four short stories and four novels, but Flood, a Historical Fiction Book is his first novel to be published.
