Robert R. Blondin

Robert R. Blondin is the author of a memoir and poetry collections. Both his autobiographical book Searching For Papa’s Star and poetry collection Lost In The Darkness Of Thought are published by Author Reputation Press.

Robert now lives in Toronto, Canada. He was born and raised in Callander, Ontario in 1949, the youngest of 12 siblings.

In 1968, he joined the Toronto Police as a records clerk. He was promoted to the position of supervisor four years later.

He also held several roles at the police station. He served as a quality control examiner and then became an Information Security Analyst later. In that role, he was responsible for quality control and systems analysis, auditing, help desk and systems training, systems and building access administration, IT, police investigations assistance in offline system searches, police tribunal and general court appearances.

Robert finally retired in 1999. He began writing poems during those years and onward.
