About Robert J Krog
Robert J. Krog was born in 1973. He is a native of Memphis, TN. He is married with two children. Mr. Krog is a devout Catholic and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He has been an assistant arborist for his father, who was a professional arborist. He has also been a grocery store clerk, a waiter for one week, an order out delivery guy for one week, a legal runner, a substitute teacher, and high school History teacher, all in Memphis, TN.
He has several degrees, mostly in History, and is putting none of them to good use, though he loves History and can still translate Ancient Egyptian, if he works at it. Currently, he works in chemical yard care and writes as much as obligations to a full-time job, the church, and family life allow. His short stories have appeared in the anthologies parABnormal digest (Sam's Dot Publishing), Shelter of Daylight (Sam's Dot Publishing), and in Clockwork Spells and Magical Bells (Kerlak Publishing). His debut collection, Stone Maiden and Other Tales, has been followed by this new novella.
