Robert Thomson is a writer and editor from Toronto, Canada. His first book Secret Things was released in 1993. A second, revised edition came out the following year.
Through the mid-to-late 1990s, Robert’s short fiction was published in various anthologies such as Queer View Mirror, Brothers Of The Night: Gay Vampire Stories, Quickies 2, Best Gay Erotica 1998, Queer View Mirror 2, and Happily Ever After: Erotic Fairy Tales for Men. Robert’s second book of short fiction, Need, was slated to be released at the beginning of 2000, but by the time the print run arrived at the distributor’s warehouse, they had closed their doors due to bankruptcy.
His work as a DJ and VJ led him to experiment with video editing software and awakened his desire to make his own short films; over the course of the next few years, Robert wrote, directed and edited several, including Last Visit (Última visita), which was nominated as Best Short at the 2011 Barcelona GLBT Film Festival. By 2012 he had written eight feature-length screenplays.
In 2014, both of Robert’s titles were re-issued in expanded e-book editions. In June, Secret Things was released, marking its twentieth anniversary. Need was released in December, marking (what would have been) its fifteenth anniversary. HowNow Media published a free-for-a-limited-time sampler of his work called Now… Where Was I? This compilation features stories and excerpts from all of Robert’s past and soon-to-be-published titles. Tiny Grievances, Robert’s first book of all-new short stories since 1999, was published in June of 2016. He is currently completing work on his first novel.
Robert lives in Toronto, Canada.
