Rob Jung was born in the wine country of California; grew up in a beautiful Mississippi River town in Wisconsin; was educated in the Minnesota State University system and Harvard Law School. He now lives the writer’s life in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, Kathy.
Prior to law school (and nearly fifty years of legal practice) Jung was a newspaper writer while getting his undergraduate degree at Winona State University. A life-long student of history, geography and religion, Jung has traveled in every continent except Antarctica, and his books often find their origin in historical events discovered his travels.
He has written five novels, the first two of which are safely locked in a secret drawer to eliminate the chance of injury to either reader or the literary world.
His first published novel, Cloud Warriors, a stand-alone action/adventure story, was published by John Hunt Publishing (UK).
The Reaper, his second published novel, is the first book of the Chimera Chronicles series that revolves around the disappearance of a famous painting and how it set in motion a psychological, political and legal war between a struggling artist and his estranged mother, seventy-five later.
The Sower, the second book in this saga, will be released in Spring, 2021.
Jung is a member of The Loft Literary Society, Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America and a founding member of South of the River Writers. His nonfiction writing has been published in various periodicals. He is the father of three adult children, four grandchildren, one great-grandchild and countless other “adopted” children of all ages, shapes and sizes. In addition to writing and lawyering, Jung likes to cook, garden, read, fish, travel, watch baseball, attend classic car auctions, drink wine and tell stories.
*Rob Jung is the pen name of Robert W. Junghans who also writes limericks and tells stories under pseudonym “C.J. Rakham”.
I’ve been a lawyer, a sawyer, inventor and singer; an entrepreneur, provocateur, historian and thespian; gourmet cook, wine snob, race car driver and fishing guide; an explorer, a dreamer, story teller and writer. I like reading and baseball and conversation and Manhattans. Born in the wine country of California, raised on a farm in Wisconsin, earned a law degree at Harvard. I’ve finally figured out what I want to do when I grow up:
Be an author of
History and Mystery and Thrillers.
