Robert McEvilla

Greetings

I am Bob McEvilla, but you can call me Robert for short.  I live in the backwoods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  I was born and raised in Chicago.  I have lived in Round Lake, IL; Gurnee, IL; Wadsworth, IL; Des Plains, IL; and Kenosha, WI. I worked as a pipe-fitter at a steel mill and a stationary engineer at Loyola University in Chicago.  In addition, I found time to be a stand-up comic which led to radio and television commercials.  In fact I have done everything except bust broncos and shoot buffalo for the railroad. I survived a forest fire, two floods, forty parachute jumps and a revolution in Latin America. When I am not writing, I spend my time chopping firewood, picking ticks off my belly, and swatting mosquitoes.  During the summer season, I work weekends as a ticket taker for the Glider/Military museum in Iron Mountain, MI. I have a daughter and two sons.  Then there are six grandchildren and two great- grandchildren.  I am engaged to Anna Volovik, formerly of Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
