- Robert E Flynn III is a software-developer, musician, living with his beautiful girlfriend, Claudia, in San Antonio, Texas. He has two wonderful children, Caitlin and Zachary, who are grown and exploring their own fantastic lives. He has spent his entire life pursuing creative endeavors. Music was his first love and still is, and writing was always part of his life, but one college professor instilled the positive input that pushed him to create his first novel. While writing endless essays and research papers, this professor wrote something truly inspiring on every one of those works one semester. He simply wrote, “This was a pleasure to read!” This simple message inspired deeply. The Touch is his first novel, but the story has been developing in his mind for two years. The book has a supernatural theme, but it is also a story of the condition of humanity.
