Robert Hartstein was born in the Bronx, New York in 1946. His grandparents were among the first wave of Eastern European immigrants who migrated to this country after World War I. Orphaned at the age of six, Robert spent his early years in New York and California. Robert is a retired labor relations manager with over forty years of service in the public sector. He has worked at all levels of local government--city, county, and state. He studied business administration and behavioral science in the California State University System and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Manpower Management. His education was interrupted by a tour of duty in the United States Marine Corps, where he served honorably. Following his service in the Marine Corps, Robert married the former Cynthia Brown, his wife of forty-three years. They have two grown sons and three grand children, all living in California. Robert and Cynthia split their time between the beautiful Coachella Valley in Southern California and the majestic Russian River Valley in Northern California, where they pursue an active outdoor life and, of course, where Robert continues to write.
