BereaOnline Welcomes Robert New as a Featured Writer

Robert New

Robert New “Bob” currently lives in Berea, Kentucky, a small town along the I-75 corridor. By day you more than likely will find him sitting behind a desk, designing heavy equipment. During the evening hours, you may find him discussing politics and campaign strategies, attending a board meeting for one of the non-profits he enjoys working with, consulting with small businesses, or occasionally raiding villages in World of Warcraft.

Online you have probably come across some of his work and not realized it in the form of one of the many websites hes helped design, or read his work on any of several blog sites or electronic magazines to which he contributes.

On the rare weekend he unplugs and disconnects from the cyber world, you may run into him browsing through the non-fiction aisles of a book store or enjoying a steak dinner or cup of coffee with friends.
