Full Name: Robert Masello
Born: August 10, 1952
Evanston, Illinois, USA


Born and raised in Evanston, Illinois, Masello studied writing at Princeton University under the noted authors Geoffrey Wolff and the late National Book Award winner, Robert Stone. After graduation, Masello moved to New York City, where he worked on staff at Esquire and GQ before embarking on his solo writing career. In 1991, he relocated to California where he wrote for such popular shows as "Charmed," "Sliders," "Poltergeist," and "Early Edition." For six years, he also served as the Visiting Lecturer in Literature at Claremont McKenna College. A longstanding member of the Writers Guild of America West, he now lives and works in Santa Monica, California.

His articles, essays and reviews have appeared often in such publications as New York Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Town and Country, Travel and Leisure, The Washington Post, Elle, People, Harper's Bazaar, The Wilson Quarterly, etc. His nonfiction book, "Robert's Rules of Writing" (a Los Angeles Times bestseller) has been adopted in many high school and college classrooms, and his guide to the television industry -- "A Friend in the Business: Honest Advice for Anyone Trying to Break Into Television Writing" -- continues to explain the intricacies of the TV field to newcomers. "Writer Tells All: Insider Secrets to Getting Your Book Published" (Owl/Holt) performs the same function for aspiring authors everywhere.
