Meet the Author

Robert Louis DeMayo took up writing at the age of twenty when he left his job as a biomedical engineer to explore the world. Over the coming years he traveled to every corner of the globe, experiencing approximately one hundred countries. He is a member of The Explorers Club and The Archaeological Institute of America. During his travels he worked extensively for the travel section of The Telegraph, out of Hudson, NH.

For three years he worked as marketing director for Eos, a company that served as a travel office for six non-profit organizations and offered dives to the Titanic and the Bismarck, Antarctic voyages, African safaris and archaeological tours throughout the world. After, Robert worked for three years as a tour guide in Alaska during the summers and as a jeep guide in Sedona, Arizona, during the winter.

He was general manager at A Day in the West, a Jeep tour company in Sedona before he decided to write full time. He is the author of The Making of Theodore Roosevelt, a fictionalized account of Roosevelt´s acquaintance with wilderness living, The Light Behind Blue Circles, a mystery thriller set in Africa, and The Cave Where the Water Always Drips, an adventure tale set in modern and colonial times of the Southwest.

His next novel, The Wayward Traveler, has also just been published on Nook. This novel follows the exploits of a young traveler who quickly runs out of money and comes up with a list of Rules for Survival to get by. This story is memoir with some fictional elements and covers a period from 1985 to 1994.

Currently he resides in Hollis, N.H. and Sedona, AZ, with his wife Diana and three daughters: Tavish Lee, Saydrin Scout, and Martika Louise.

I loved this book! It made Teddy Roosevelt less of a historical figure and more of a real person for me. I know that it is a fictionalized account of a time in his life, but, sometimes, that is necessary to move past the facts and figures to find the real person underneath.
