Bob Irelan’s 2018 novel, Angel’s Truth, One Teenager’s Quest for Justice, marks the first time he has knowingly written fiction. But his commitment to writing stretches back to the late 1950s, when he majored in Journalism at the University of Maryland. Following 10 years of newspaper and magazine reporting and writing, including stints at The Wall Street Journal and Nation’s Business magazine in Washington, DC, he spent 32 years in corporate public relations for a Fortune 500 family of companies, the last 12 as the corporate officer directing that function. In retirement, he taught a public relations course for two years at University of the Pacific and for five years at University of California, Davis, Extension. Each course focused on writing as the quintessential communications tool. Bob is at work on another novel. He lives with his cat, Jocko, in Rancho Murieta, CA, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
