Who Is Bob McDiarmid?

Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away. – Robert Fulghum

Bob and MIss Kate

As a self-described disciple of Henry David Thoreau, Bob McDiarmid is both a writer and an activist. He works very hard to live an uncomplicated life in complicated times.

Robert resides in Palo Alto, CA with his husband David, whom he’ll celebrate a 10th anniversary with this spring. An avid cyclist, he has participated several years in AIDS Lifecycle, a 550-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles and the Friends for Life Bike Rally from Toronto to Montreal, Canada. In the spirit of giving back to the community, the entirety of his royalties are donated back to HIV/AIDS charities.

Robert is the author of several titles including The House of Wolves from Lethe Press, Brief Moments – A Collection of Short Stories from CreateSpace and Milton and the Morning Monk, has just been released from Lulu Press and LiftBooks in Spring 2017!

Coming Soon!

Coming in fall 2017, Robert’s second collection of short stories and microfiction – featuring the hilarious short “The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Getting Over Yourself”.
