Bob Romano lives with his wife, Trish, and their two Labrador retrievers,
Winslow Homer and Finnegan, in rural northwestern New Jersey. The family owns a small cabin
on a wilderness lake in western Maine where they spend much of their free time.
Bob is a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America
and the New England Outdoor Writers Association.
Trish and the couple’s daughter, Emily Rose, provide artwork for Bob’s books
and magazine articles. Trish also proofreads Bob’s stories,
puts up with his antics, and takes photographs of the great outdoors.
“I have always thought that hawks, like trout, are the cowboys of the natural world. Of course, growing up
in New Jersey during the nineteen fifties, my idea of cowboys was… Gary Cooper in High Noon – western
samurais, loners distrusted by the mainstream, their independence admired, but also feared, by a
society which values progress over all else. As a kid, I wanted to be a hawk.”
– from Hawks and Crows by Bob Romano
