Robert Stanhope is the owner of Social Songbirds Publishing LLC in Bradenton, FL, a freelance journalist, a ghost blogger for motorsports and automotive clients, and a writer of poetry, flash fiction, and short stories. His first poetry collection, Salty Eyes, will be published in May 2017. Robert grew up in New Hampshire and got his start in writing at Claremont Speedway, producing the weekly race reports for local and regional trade papers. His creative writing can be found on a number of online literary forums and on his blog at www.RobertStanhope.com.
Robert, and his high school sweetheart, relocated from The Sunshine Town of Newport, NH to the Sunshine State a few years ago. Much of his writing inspiration comes from early morning, before sunrise, walks on the white sands of the Central Florida Gulf Coast. He remembers his roots and his second publication will reflect that. Look for Beyond Sunshine and Sugar to be published in the summer of 2017.
