Welcome To The Author Pages of Robert A. Chalmers
… where you will find resources to help you write, publish and market your book.
Hi, I’m Robert Chalmers, an author, just like you, and on this site, I share my own lessons from the writing journey.
I have made so many mistakes in getting my books to the published stage, and if I can save you a little time and money, and heartache along the way I will. So I can share articles, and how-to ideas, even video, and audio about being a creative entrepreneur. Mostly about writing and creativity, and publishing options.
Who is Robert Chalmers?
Robert Chalmers is a bestselling author of thrillers under Robert A. Chalmers and R.A.Chalmers, and also writes non-fiction for authors and Language Teachers.
I’m based in Felixstowe, England although I was born in Australia and lived there most of my life. I’m a travel junkie and am often away on book research trips to interesting places.I’ve lived and worked in China, mainly in Shanghai and earlier on in Beijing. I’ve traveled fairly widely in the Far East. I love relaxing with a book and a glass of South Australian Shiraz and maybe even pinot noir, or a gin & tonic (Bombay & Fever Tree). I realized that I was not weird in wanting to be in the company of others a lot! Even if it was characters I write about
I spent many years in various jobs in Australia and China before becoming a full-time author-entrepreneur in September 2010.
My books can combine romance, murder, mystery, and mayhem sometimes in a fantasy setting, sometimes with a healthy dose of humor.
I was born and raised in Queensland, Australia. I currently live in Suffolk, in the United Kingdom. My writing is more stream-of-consciousness, rather than detailed planning. I write romance, suspense, fantasy, and mystery/thriller novels and the occasional email, all of which are designed to get your pulse pounding. Don’t let my photo fool you – I’m actually on another adventure in China in that shot.
In my pre-writing life, I have worked as a Teacher, train driver, Teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and hotel handyman and countless other jobs – even spent some time in the Royal Australian Navy.
