After living through the events depicted in his self-transformational memoir, Suffering Ends when Awakening Begins, Robert succeeded in breaking the cycle of dysfunction handed down from earlier generations in his family and the limitations to success tied up in that. Robert Crown was born in Chicago and raised in the northwest suburbs. Despite all he went through in his youth even when he escaped premature births to the afterlife more than six times, he overcame his trials and learned the importance of helping his family, friends, and those around him. Robert has studied spirituality for more than thirty years, and as an adult, he has volunteered to in community service organizations and has worked with youth and seniors. He has also served on the board of directors of his local chamber of commerce and is currently serving as President of his local Toastmasters club. His curiosity and love of travel have taken him to Japan six times.
He is married, and together they have four beautiful children whom he teaches to think for themselves and to use their thoughts to create the lives they want. He still lives in the Chicago area, where he has owned and operated a residential real estate brokerage for sixteen years.
What inspires you to write?
The thought that what I write can have a positive impact even in some small way on someone's life.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am an outliner. I will write, record, and voice memo ideas that pop into my head or something I remember or forgot to add. Sometimes my written notes end up in the notebook they were intended for, and sometimes they are written on numerous pieces of paper scattered on my desk. Lol!

How did you decide how to publish your books?
Along with the title, it was more important for me to keep my story as written. Suffering Ends When Awakening Begins, written by Robert Crown is my story, not a publishing company. Maintaining the story as written was the primary reason for choosing self-publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Just like everything else in this world, it's changing. It is becoming more author friendly.
What genres do you write?
Self-Help, Spirituality, Memoir
