Robb Zerr

A successful writer, blogger, humorist and communications professional, Robb has been living in a world of words since 1981. He has written literally thousands of pieces over the years on a wide range of topics. He says that if he had ever mastered the ability to focus on just one thing at a time, he'd be wealthy and perhaps famous. As a blogger for great-quotes.com and 1-love-quotes.com, he not only gets to share his love of the written word, but the words of some of his favorite luminaries - including Groucho Marx and Mark Twain, two of his idols. In his spare time, Robb is a noted expert in communications and marketing, a mediocre musician, talented entertainer, dedicated father of two, fervent community activist, horrible gardener, occasional world traveler, professional pot stirrer and bon vivant. He is a master at stringing totally unrelated thoughts together into effective, often hilarious prose and considers himself a Story Laureate.
