Andrew Robbins was born and raised on a farm in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After a stint in the Army in Vietnam (serving with the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions in the years 1967–1969), Robbins earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Lake Superior State University. Then for twenty-eight years, he worked for the Department of Defense.
An accomplished author, Robbins recently published his second compelling book, The Rakkasans: A Vietnam Veteran’s Memoir. (See Book Synopses for more on his books.)
Robbins’ favorite pastime of windsurfing on the Great Lakes has stalled out these days because of insurmountable back pain.
With the middle name of William and a father named Andrew, whom family and friends called Andy, young Andrew soon learned to respond to Billy whenever his mother summoned. Along the way through life, as he acquired nicknames and encountered various official and legal documents, his names multiplied until he also grew accustomed to Andrew, William, Andy, Bill, and, sometimes, Hey you! or Honey-Do! Most often, it’s Bill.
Bill lives in Indiana with his wife of 43 years.
