Bob Giel

Bob Geil

Bob Giel was born in New York City and now lives in New Jersey. Throughout his life, he has spent time in the East and Midwest, but has never resided in any area that could be termed the West, a bit strange for someone who writes Westerns.

His latest novel, "A Crow to Pluck" is being published by Oghma Creative Media through their Westerns imprint, Galway Press.
