Robert Vaughan is one of America’s best loved writers of fiction with a career that has spanned nearly sixty years. He has published over 500 books, under his own name and various pseudonyms. We, at Wolfpack, are pleased to present many of his classic books as well as the introduction of a new series, The Western Adventures of Cade McCall. This series is provided exclusively for Wolfpack.
Mr. Vaughan has had a storied career, primarily writing in the Western genre. In addition, he has written war stories, action and adventure, crime stories and the critically acclaimed, The American Chronicles, a decade by decade account of the twentieth century.
He is a retired Army Warrant Officer, having had three tours of duty in Vietnam. His books, Brandywine’s War and the sequel, Brandywine’s War: Back in Country, draw upon his personal experiences, bringing an iconoclastic look at that war. The Valkyrie Mandate, The Quick and the Dead, and The Other Side of Memory provide a more sober window on the Vietnam experience.
For many years, he and his wife, Ruth, held a writing seminar at their beach home in Alabama. He gave generously of his time to help scores of published and unpublished writers sharpen their skills. He often says, he learned far more from his students, than they from him, enjoying the camaraderie that his guests provided. The seminars were suspended in 2010, but he still enjoys hearing from many of the participants who share the news of their successes.
He is still sharing. On his blog and on Facebook, Robert enjoys writing priceless stories from his days as a youth growing up in Sikeston, Missouri, as well as adventures he has experienced both in and out of the Army. He says that a writer can be compared to a merchant except that the only way a writer can “restock his shelves,” is through experiences.
His writing schedule belies his chronological age. Every day is a writing day, whether it be 2,000 words or 200. Every day, that is, except when Alabama is playing football. Roll Tide!
