Rob Bowman achieved a Masters degree in literature from the University of Colorado at Denver, and now teaches at La Quinta High School in Los Angeles. He is the fiction editor of the avant-garde literary troup known as The Donnybrook Writing Academy, where he writes under the pseudonym Irving J. Silvertoad.
He is married to the love of his life, Mindy, and they are raising two wonderful boys, Jet and Rocket. He is fond of kissing alligators, attending wetsuit parties, and taking awkward family photos. Ben Loory, author of Stories for the Nighttime and Some for the Day (Penguin, 2011) attests, "Rob Bowman has a voice that will pick you up and carry you all the way over the falls."
