Robert Soul is Rob Harmon’s nom de plume.
Rob moved back to Oklahoma in 2014 after being away for nearly 20 years and is extremely grateful for Tulsa, Oklahoma’s vibrant writing community. When he isn’t taking nature walks through Oxley Nature Center or practicing yoga at Be Love on 6th Street, he’s writing fiction, contributing to local magazines or spending time at the lake.
When it’s time for football, catch Robert Soul watching Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Barcelona or his beloved West Ham. All the others are, well, ‘wishers and hopers’.
He volunteered in Texas as a suicide support group facilitator with CONTACT CRISIS, provided support for the Mosaic of Dallas and served countless hours with Hope Worldwide in Dallas and Kansas City during immunization for children campaigns, fire prevention awareness canvassing and disaster preparedness and relief efforts. He currently works with Tulsa’s homeless population as an employment specialist in the city-wide program called A Better Way.
Rob has acted in several musicals, starring in three, including Esther and the Banquets of Susa, for which he co-wrote the music, lyrics, and the book. His non-fiction articles have appeared in Green Country’s PreviewMagazine and TulsaPets. His short fiction, under the pen name ROBERT SOUL, has appeared in Dark and Dangerous Things III. His new comic book series, Weird and Strange Tales on Route 66, released its first issue, The Wizard Tailor of Creek County, in May of 2019. Ruined My Rhythm, Vols. 1,2 & 3, his graphic novels, were released in 2016, 2017 & 2018. Volume 4 is set to be released on December 7th, 2019, with a release party at Tulsa’s historical Circle Cinema. A recent trip to Eastern Europe has added wood to his storytelling fire, specifically a quartet of novels in the works called The Saint, the Spy, the Witch, the Wolf.
He is co-founder with M.A. Chiappetta of Writing Well, an organization that serves as both a resource for writers as well as a organizer of benevolent volunteers.
