Robert B. Sloan is known for his leadership in higher education, public speaking, and nonfiction writings. He is a native west Texan and serves as a university president in Houston, Texas. Sloan’s passion for a great story is felt by his readers and proven in his words: “I think stories are powerful. They shape us and they influence us in ways that abstract philosophies and ideologies cannot.”

Robert is married to his college sweetheart, Sue. With seven married children and more than 20 young grandchildren, they especially enjoy large family gatherings with good food and lively conversation around the table. Favorite family activities include table and parlor games, writing and reading stories, coloring, and, of course, storytelling.
