My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. thanks for the heads up on this film. The cast sounds excellent. I am definitely looking forward to this one. How do you think it will compare to Prince of Thieves?

  2. Not sure how it will compare. For some reason, I’m not expecting to like it as much as Prince of Thieves. Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman were excellent in that film. One of the Costner’s best in my opinion. That was the movie that really got me interested in the medieval period when I was younger.

  3. I remember loving that movie as a kid, but I watched it again recently and I was surprised at the cheesy factor. I’ll admit that it was better than Costner’s worst flick – Waterworld. Holy cow…

  4. I must admit, I hadn’t heard about this movie yet.

    I’m going to have to tell my daughter, she is a HUGE, I mean HUGE Robin Hood fan. She researches him and does historical presentations at local schools with ballads and songs.

    I hope they make the movie historical, but I already have my doubts with the released photo … really, that longbow looks Victorian … they would have been round (but tapered) in the 12th century.

  5. Robert, I’m worried about the historical factor as well. I do hope they make it as accurate to the time period as possible. I haven’t studied Robin Hood in great detail, just read a few snippets from the ballads and such.

    From your daughter’s research, in what century would he most likely have existed, does she think? I know there are many competing theories out there, if Robin Hood actually existed at all. Much like the legend of King Arthur.
