Robert J. Skead

Writing was always his favorite subject, and thanks to his mother’s encouragement, Robert J. Skead wrote the Caldecott-nominated Something to Prove, and several middle-grade humor tales, including Elves Can’t Dunk. His latest American Revolutionary War Adventure series is based on the true story of George Washington’s secret spies, The Culper Spy Ring.

When not writing, Robert can be found entertaining children at schools. During his annual speaking circuit, Robert speaks to more than five thousand students every year. Follow Robert and learn more at
