Robert Gorelick is a former U.S. Navy photographer.  He holds multiple subject and special education credentials from California State University, Northridge.  His first loves are poetry and prose.  He has recently completed a memoir of his Los Angeles youth, in the form of a creative non-fiction anthology.  He spends the preponderance of his spare time in neighborhood coffee shops and hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains.

He has found solace writing prose and poetry.  He is currently finishing a novel for young adults, concerning the themes altruism, selfishness, and the value of friendship.

Since coming to Poetry Soup, Mr. Gorelick has been a winner of numerous contests. 

In addition, his short story appeared in issues of TNT Magazine and his poetry was published in Issues of Indelible Magazine.

The internet opened up a new world for him, and he spends time participating in poetry and book clubs

Sad Truth an anthology are nineteen short stories of a youth’s longing for peace of mind and sense of belonging.  The road is long, painful, and circuitous.  A troubled childhood, school bullies, a dubious religious sect, and unscrupulous mental health professionals, make the journey seem futile.  Finding wisdom, purpose and sense of belonging are finally attained from lessons learned and taken to heart.

The trials faced by the protagonist closely mirror my youthful experiences.  He is the one to tell this story because the emotions were his emotions—raw and valid.
