Robert Gillis grew up in Dorchester, Massachusetts and is a graduate of Boston College High School and U/Mass Boston. Although he's been a professional computer programmer for nearly 20 years, his first love has always been writing, and he has written a regular opinion piece for the Foxboro Reporter since 1996.
He and his wife Susan live in Foxboro, home of the Superbowl champion Patriots, with their "kids," a German shepherd and a very opinionated Moluccan Cockatoo parrot.
He is very active in the Foxboro community; in addition to being on the board of directors for the Foxboro Jaycees, he also serves as that organization's web master, and created and maintains the web site for the the Foxboro Doolittle Home, a place where senior citizens live their lives in dignity and quality of life. He also works with the Foxboro Food Pantry. Recently, he has taken his love of photography in a new direction and is selling his photographs at his website, GillisPhotos.com
"Nana" is his first published book, and was truly a labor of love, written over six years in memory of a very special lady. He hopes that anyone who has loved a senior will read this book.
