Robert P. Fitton was one of the first authors to bring his novels to the Internet for direct downloads for Palm Pilots and other formats. Fitton's genres include science fiction and fantasy, mystery, thrillers, and pop novels.
Fitton grew up amidst the less complicated life of a Massachusetts town in the 1950's and 60's. He was raised by his parents with an appreciation of family, local, and American History. His summers were spent in his neighborhood and town, often competing in baseball and other sports within small town America. With television's increasing influence, Fitton reveled in the 1960's Star Trek and The Twilight Zone. On cold winter nights he pointed his telescope skyward and dreamed of traveling to the stars or back through time.
Fitton graduated with a degree in American Studies from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He also took numerous literature courses, including the study of science fiction. Within a year of graduation, fortified by his youthful dreams and influences, he began writing science fiction novels. He later built a career in outside sales, but continued writing in his free time and participated in annual writing seminars. With marriage and an expanding family, Fitton compressed his writing time into the pre-dawn hours, adding mystery, fantasy, thrillers, and pop novel genres to his work. The advent of the personal computer prompted Fitton to retire his typewriter and dramatically increase his volume on computer disk. The Fitton Chronicles is the ongoing accumulation of that effort.
Not surprisingly, Fitton resides in a New England village, maintains a jogging schedule, often under the stars by winter, and a warm weather biking routine in summer. His writing continues with a number of Series Books and new works posted on The Fitton Chronicles.
