Tell us about you
In addition to a career as a newspaper editor, publisher, and manager, I’ve written fiction most of my life. The newspaper biz has taken my family and me from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina and Texas, and from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, I’m as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas. I now reside in a small community in Wisconsin where I manage the business operations of a daily newspaper. The variety of places I’ve lived and visited serve as settings for the characters who invade my head.

I have two novels published (Hannah's Voice, Carry Me Away), and the third in the works.

I’ve had a dozen short stories published in several print anthologies and e-zines, and several articles on the craft of writing fiction.

I also edit fiction and non-fiction books for authors from around the world. It helps that I’m fluent in five languages: U.S. English, U.K. English, Canadian English, and Australian English, plus my native language, Texan.

Carry Me Away

Evolved Publishing presents "Carry Me Away" by Robb Grindstaff. As he did with "Hannah's Voice," Grindstaff has captured the unique voice and soul of a girl facing extraordinary circumstances, this one struggling with the almost unthinkable at such a young age - her own mortality. LITERARY FICTION / COMING OF AGE
~~~~~
Carrie Destin, a biracial military brat, learns the injuries she sustained in a car accident will prove fatal before she reaches adulthood. She accelerates her life and sets aggressive goals: college, connecting with her Japanese roots, and the all-consuming desire to find her soul mate. A kid from nowhere, she travels the world with her Marine father and Japanese mother.
 
Facing an abbreviated life with a brash attitude and a biting, sometimes morbid sense of humor, Carrie races to graduate high school at age fifteen. College is her marker of adulthood, when she can smoke in public and order dessert before dinner. She tosses out her adolescent wedding scrapbook for a funeral plan. A teenage crush on Paul, a family friend and a widower seventeen years her senior, develops into a fantasy that takes on a life of its own.
 
As she outlives the original prognosis into her early twenties, her life goals evolve—always short-term. The longing for love stays constant, yet she walls herself off from others. Relationships end in betrayal, abandonment and violence. When love reveals itself, she pulls away, fearing that an early meeting with Death is on the horizon.
 
Carrie’s frantic desire to experience life before it ends spirals out of control, leading to a physical and emotional collapse. Her grandmother’s wisdom points her toward acceptance, but first she must break through her walls before she can give the gift of ‘til-death-do-us-part.

Hello Robb,Nice meeting you too!

The Tribal planning was a wonderful job and I absolutely loved it. Being a college professor was very predictable. I enjoyed working with the students, but the sameness of the schedule was sometimes exhausting. The teaching itself was fun, though.

It's a joy to meet you.

:-) Robb, we already know each other, from the EP street team... we just haven't interacted much before.  So glad to see you here too.
