Rob Tyler has dabbled in short fiction for decades. His stories, flash fiction, and prose poems tend to focus on themes of love, loss, and transformation. More recently, he has led writing workshops on speculative and weird fiction. When he’s not reading or writing, you might find him running trails in Mendon Ponds Park or straightening up his crooked little Victorian in Fairport, NY, which he shares with a strangely aloof cat rescued from Attica prison some years ago. She usually sits out of reach and ignores him. His two 20-something daughters are farther away, but ignore him less, for which he is grateful.
