Robert Bigaouette born on November 11th, 1965, in Brooklyn, New York. Robert's father took the family and moved to Oklahoma in 1978, Robert spent his teen years living in Oklahoma. He discovered MTV in 1981, but still trying to find himself as a 15 year old. He found his passion in songwriting in 1981, and in a way it was an outlet to allow his feelings out.
Robert went back to New York City in 1984, and life went on to the 1990s. He realized that he had an interest writing books. All through the 1990s, Robert was working security jobs to make ends meet, working on the overnight, or the midnight shift to be able to have time to write. As Robert kept writing, he also realized he was quite diverse in his writing. Suspense thrillers, and poetry books, and in the early 2000s, children's books.
Many years went by, to no prevail, as Robert worked feverishly looking for an agent, who would take him on with his writing he couldn't find an agent. Many years went by, on the verge of giving up, or taking a self publisher, (or a do it yourself publishing house), Robert just retreated, until 2022.
While working at a security job, on the overnight, a good friend approached Robert at the lobby desk, in an office building with some good news. When he approached the desk, he told Robert about a self publishing house called, Archway Publishing. Robert kept his thoughts to himself, while his friend talked about Archway, as Robert was thinking not much of self publishing in general. Before departing, his friend had to leave for work, he passed along to Robert, newspaper pieces with information about Archway, wasn't just a self pushing house, Archway is part of a Super Commercial publishing house, Simon and Shuster. And being that Archway is connected to a major publishing house, that looked impressive and different, but still felt unsure.
For two months, the Archway information sat on Robert's work desk at his apartment, untouched.
One day, on one of his days off, he glanced at the papers of Archway, he immediately grabs the information he had on the desk, and Robert began to read it. the more he read, the more he was interested.
Finally, Robert signed on with Archway Publishing, knowing he made the right decision.
