Agent: Sarah Jane Freymann

Home page: htttp://

Robert Rummel-Hudson spent his youth in Texas. He
grew up in the West Texas oil town of Odessa, and
attended college at the University of Texas at Arlington,
studying music and English. During that time, he worked
as a professional freelance trombonist and music

At the age of twenty-nine, he left it all behind and moved
to Kalamazoo, Michigan to marry Julie Rummel. A year
later, they had a daughter, Schuyler Noelle, and moved to
New Haven, Connecticut to work for Yale University.
It was at Yale that Schuyler was diagnosed with Bilateral
Perisylvian Polymicrogyria, a rare neurological condition
that left her unable to speak. For the next few years,
Robert used his online journal and blog (and later his first
book, SCHUYLER'S MONSTER, St. Martin's Press 2008) to
chronicle Schuyler's fight for a normal life, and also his
transformation to become, against all his flaws and self-
doubts, a good father and fierce advocate for a very
unique little girl.

Robert Rummel-Hudson now lives with Julie and Schuyler
in the north Dallas suburb of Plano, Texas, where Schuyler
attends a special class for children who use Alternative
Augmentative Communication devices. She also attends
regular first grade classes for a good part of her day, and
is working towards transitioning to a mainstream
education in the next few years.
