Robert Smith writes thrillers. Sometimes as TyCobbsTeeth (pen name) and he tells us how that pen name came to be in the podcast. Areas of the thriller genre that interest him are: Psychological; Suspense; Horror; and Crime/Detective. He’s from Prince Edward Island, just off Canada’s east coast, where the ocean winds drive the cold waves of the north Atlantic hard against the island’s red cliffs. More recently he is from Ottawa, and the US East coast.
