Robert Gallant transcends the typical octogenarian. The Wall Street Journal featured him playing volleyball, taking Zumba classes and living an active lifestyle while helping others in his community do the same, encouragingly referring to it as “meaningful aging”. His five novels are by-products of a well-lived life dedicated to family, a prosperous career as an engineer for 40 years at Dow Chemical and continuous learning drawn from environmental studies, travels and social involvement.
In his four-part suspense-thriller, the prolific and resourceful writer in Gallant allows him to immerse his readers in the unique environmental features of the Atchafalaya Basin swamp and the French Cajun culture. In Rob the Vatican, he turns his readers into experts of the Vatican and convinces them that robbing the walled fortress is not impossible!
