Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida, Mr. Cobb eventually ventured off to the wilds of New York City for several years to experience the world of acting. His life path took him back home to South Florida where he earned college degrees at Florida Atlantic University. He now lives in Jupiter – the city, not the planet – with his true love and talented artist, Alicia, their two weird cats, Simon and Weezy, and his amazingly wonderful daughter, Emma. He is a member of the Bloody Pens Writers Group, as well as the South Florida Writer’s Association.
The two-book deal contemplates the hotly anticipated return of Cobb's first book, A Moon Called Sun, which New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony calls: "intriguingly different science fiction/fantasy/horror, wildly ranging, sometimes hard-hitting, not for maiden aunts."
The novel follows the exploits of Floridian Trace Jackson. A botched alien abduction sends him back in time to 1818. He soon meets a young Seminole woman, and the two strike up a relationship. Unfortunately for them, Trace's distant ancestor, General Andrew Jackson, is hell-bent on driving out the Seminoles by whatever means necessary. It will take every bit of Trace's wit and resolve to save his lady love from Jackson's inexorable advance and maybe, just maybe, find a way back home.
His second upcoming book, The Slant Six, is a space opera thriller in the same vein as Star Wars and The Fifth Element. This new release ingeniously mixes sci-fi with intense chase scenes and a sprinkling of NASCAR-style race action. In it, Loman Phin, a spaceship racer past his prime, is hired to make a delivery across the galaxy. He's caught up in an ancient feud when he realizes his "package" is actually a human being. Meanwhile, danger is always hot on their heels in the form of a massive space freighter turned death machine.
Both A Moon Called Sun and The Slant Six are scheduled for release in 2017.
