About the Author

Robb Skidmore is a novelist who currently lives in Southern California. He writes upmarket fiction which combines a literary sensibility with honest and deep characterizations. He started out as a maniacal scribbler in journals during college and attended several well-known fiction workshops. His short stories have appeared in many literary reviews and publications. His critically acclaimed and cult classic novel, The Pursuit of Cool, was a Quarter Finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest and a Winner of a Next Generation Indie Award. It is a coming of age story that captures Generation X and what it was like to be young in America in the 1980s. Full of humor and heartbreak, it follows a music, movie and pop culture obsessed, tragically romantic young man who attends college during the 1980s.
