Robert J. Peterson is a writer and web developer living in Los Angeles.

He’s written several novels, short stories, and screenplays. He’s the founder of the small publishing company California Coldblood Books. He’s a co-founder of the pop-culture emporium CC2K, which is no longer operational, alas.

He’s done a lot of nerdy stuff. He’s written for newspapers and websites all over the country, including the Marin Independent Journal, PerformInk, Space.com, the Telluride (Colo.) Daily Planet, CC2K, Offscreen, and Geekscape.net. He’s appeared as a pop-culture “expert”—whatever that means—on the web talk shows Comics on Comics, The Fanbase Press Week in Review, Collider Heroes, Screen Junkies TV Fights, and Fandom Planet. He’s appeared as panelist talking about movies, comics, and the publishing industry at several cons around the country, including Wizard World Las Vegas and Los Angeles Comic-Con.

In addition to his writing, Robert is a graphic designer and web developer who specializes in open-source platforms like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, as well as an array of web technologies including PHP, Javascript, React, Angular, GraphQL, some Magento, and many others.

As a designer, he has built postcards, business cards, logos and many other websites. He’d love to design more mood boards for motion pictures. He grew up in east Tennessee and received a degree in journalism from Northwestern University. He’s one of Medill’s least distinguished grads.

His friends call him Bob.
