Bob Rich

Books – Blog – Spirituality – Psychology – Historical Fiction

Bob Rich is an Australian storyteller, with 18 published books in a variety of genres including both fiction and nonfiction. Five of his books, and over 40 short stories, have won awards.

He has retired 5 times so far, from 5 different occupations, but is still going strong as a Professional Grandfather. Any human born since 1993 qualifies as his grandchild; anyone born after 1987 as his child. Everything he does, including his writing, is working toward a survivable future for them, and one worth surviving in. This means environmental and humanitarian activism: an attempt to change a worldwide culture of greed, hate and fear into one of compassion and cooperation. He carries on much of this work at his popular blog, Bobbing Around,

He has been writing since 1980, with a byline column in “Earth Garden” magazine and several other periodicals. His first book, “The Earth Garden Building Book: Design and build your own house,” was published in 1986, and went through 4 editions, the last going out of print in 2018. He has had four other self-help books published, the latest being “From Depression to Contentment: A self-therapy guide.” A biography, “Aniko: The stranger who loved me” has won 4 awards.
