About (Who?)


Robert Smith (A.K.A. TyCobbsTeeth) hails from Prince Edward Island (off Canada’s east coast).
On this small island, ocean waves drive hard against red cliffs. So, with fears that the sandstone island might soon melt into the Atlantic, Robert finished his studies in Information Technology and moved to Canada’s capital.

Robert has worked in network design, administration and security. He also flipped burgers, waited tables, and blended drinks for an orange guy named Julius (not that any of that matters). Now, he manages a digital forensics team, supporting investigations (during the day), and writes.

This author writes thrillers (psychological, suspense, crime and horror). Pick one up if you like that sort of thing.

Stay Hungry,

What’s with that pen name?

Robert came up with the pseudonym, ‘TyCobbsTeeth’ after reading a story back in 1999. A woman named Karen Shemonsky bought the dentures of Ty Cobb, a former Major League Baseball center-fielder, at a Sotheby’s auction for $7,475. The bizarre purchase inspired him to read up on Cobb–who he learned was arguably the greatest baseball player of all time. Because his goal was to write stories with real bite, he felt that the moniker fit.
Since he published Society for Supper in 2015, he met the sports expert from Sotheby’s auction house–the guy who sold Ty Cobb’s dentures to Karen Shemonsky! David Goodwillie reached out to him through GoodReads after reading his author profile; how awesome is that?

  2. Thank you for following my blog. Heard that Ty Cobb was a mean son of a gun but he was an incredible baseball player. Babe Ruth was a good hitter and a nicer guy. Best wishes for success with your book

    thanks for liking one of my blog posts! And Ty Cobb, from what I understand, was quite the player! I am a baseball fan myself – Cincinnati and Detroit.

        My youngest is the Detroit expert and he thinks that the Tigers will be strong this year. I am hoping that the Reds get going this year!

    1. Thanks for pointing that out Kelsey, I’ll take a look. If I need an editor I’ll definitely keep you in mind. I currently have one and am implementing what I hope to be the last of the edits on Society for Supper. I’m hoping to release it in March.
      It was my first NaNoWriMo and I loved the challenge.

  7. How nice to be in contact. You found the blog where I write about photography. If you browsed more than my latest post you surely noticed the only topic I discuss is photography.
    Now that I know about you I intend to wander your site and get to know you.

  8. Thanks for being my first follower. It took me awhile to get things “up and running” and I still have a ways to go with it, but I’m learning and continually tweaking. ! I have to say it was a bit creepy to have my first follower be an eerie set of teeth though! Life is a blast. Will look at your books too. 🙂
