Robert Gary Dodds is known as someone who has a quick wit and sense of humor. As a published author, he is evolving into a serious writer of biographies and historical research. He is highly adept at assessing and reading people and asking intuitive questions that uncover the facts that make a great story. 


Born in England of earlier Scottish and Cornish heritage, he married one of Jamaica’s old families with Scottish roots and retained extensive contacts.  Having worked with charities wherever they have lived, he currently sits on the Global Advisory Council of the Akilah Women's Institute of Rwanda.


He is at ease in almost all cultures, having lived with his wife, Mary, of 43-years in Europe, the Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific, and North America.  He's conducted work in the West Indies and Latin America and is equally at home in the empty desert quarter of Qatar with Bedouin tribe members or in the lush Blue Mountains of Jamaica with old friends. Yet he loves nothing better than being with his grandchildren, children, wife, and their three miniature Schnauzers in North Carolina, where they retired from their international careers in December 2014.


Spelling American style: 

The author has lived in or worked for American companies, the last 20-years and has transitioned a long-time ago into using Americanized English spelling rather than British English. He begs his non-American English language reader’s understanding.  

The Americans and British are one people separated only by a common language.”
