My name is Robert Redd and thank you for visiting my author page. I live in central Florida, south of the “world’s most famous beach.”
My main historical interests are the Civil War and the history of the area I live in. I am one of those very lucky people who have a great job in the field of history. I currently serve as the Cultural Coordinator for the County of Volusia. I also served as Executive Director for the New Smyrna Museum of History for four years. I also served as a volunteer member of the Volusia County Historic Preservation Board. Please realize that all posts and comments are my own and do not represent the views of the County of Volusia.
I am what would most likely be called a “regional”, or “local” historian. I write about the area I know; Florida. I don’t have a particular time period I specialize in but rather write about what interests me. If it’s interesting and there’s a need I will pursue it. Trust me, the ideas are endless.
My third book, published by Arcadia/History Press, was released in September 2016.
My friend Bob Grenier and I are working together on a book that will help to honor veterans of the Korean War who have lived in Florida. I am also in the very early research phases on a couple of book ideas. If these work out I will be sure to update my page.
I have been blessed to receive solid constructive advice from other authors and hope to be able to do the same for others. If you would like to contact me please see my “contact” page.
I am proud to be a member of the following organizations:
