Bob Doerr's Background Information

Bob with his dog SkylerI grew up in a military family, graduated from the Air Force Academy, and then had a twenty eight year career in the Air Force.  It was a life style that had me moving every three or four years, but also one that exposed me to the people and cultures of numerous countries in Asia, Europe, and to most of these United States. 

In the Air Force, I specialized in criminal investigations and counterintelligence gaining significant insight to the worlds of crime, espionage and terrorism. My field of work brought me into close contact and coordination with the investigative and security agencies of many different countries and with the FBI and CIA. This background has helped me develop the fictional plots and characters in my books. 

In addition to my degree from the Academy, I also have a Masters in International Relations from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska. I am a full time author now, with twelve mystery/thrillers and four middle grade fantasies already published. My next book should be released in he middle of this year.  I'm very proud to announce that the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) selected me as its Author of the Year for 2013. My book Cold Winter's Kill was a finalist for the 2010 Eric Hoffer Award. Loose Ends Kill was also selected as a finalist the next year for the 2011 Eric Hoffer Award and later won the 2011 Silver medal for Fiction/mystery at the MWSA annual conference.  Another Colorado Kill won the same medal in 2012, and it also took the Silver medal for General Fiction in the 2012 Stars and Flags national book contest.  No One Else to Kill won First Runner-Up in the Commercial Fiction category for the 2013 Eric Hoffer Award. My four novellas, fantasy adventures for middle grade readers are titled The Enchanted Coin, The Rescue of Vincent, The Magic of Vex, and Stranded in Space. My other books include The Attack, The Group, The Assassins, Dead Men Can Kill, Caffeine Can Kill, Greed Can Kill, Honeymoons Can Kill, and my new book The Treasure.  I've also co-authored a mystery with three other authors titled Paragraphs: Mysteries of the Golden Booby, and I have two self published novellas on kindle: Snow Blind and Del Randall.

I live in Garden Ridge, Texas, with my wife of 49 years, and an ornery cat named Cinco.
