Robert “Bob” Koger grew up in Columbus, Kansas, and now calls Crossroads, Texas, his home.  Prior to becoming a writer, Bob spent twenty year in the U. S. Air Force, two years as a Technical Writer for a fortune 500 company, and eighteen years working for the Department of the Air Force as a Civil Servant.  


After graduation from high school Bob joined the Air Force and worked on electronic navigation equipment.  Moving from there he went into teaching other Air Force personnel. Upon his retirement from the military he started his next job as the Lead Technical Writer for Keuffel & Esser Company.  He wrote repair and operational books on laser ranging devices, heart monitors, and many other types of equipment made by the company before returning to work as a civilian for the U. S. Air Force. 

Always interested in soccer, he spent twenty nine years coaching youth soccer.  He has his United States Soccer Association “D” level Coaching License, his American Youth Soccer Organization Advanced Coach certificate, and has coached all levels of youth soccer, to include Olympic Development.  Bob coached in Texas, California, and Mississippi.  He has also designed and taught coaching development clinics in Texas, California, and New York. 

He took his love for soccer and turned it into a successful carwwr as the author of three soccer books, 101 Youth Soccer Drills, The New Coach’s Guide to Coaching Youth Soccer and Baffled Parent’s Guide to Fix-It drills for Youth Soccer. He's now writing mysteries and hopes to make as successful a mark in that genre as he's had in soccer books.

He enjoys spending time with his best friend, who also happens to be his wife Mary, and his family.  He has a daughter, two sons, a grandson and three granddaughters.
