Rob Proctor’s inspiration for writing Katie & the Carpenter evolved from a series of daily Facebook posts during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Rob chronicled their family's sixteen-year odyssey, and the book is an intensely personal journey through the eyes of a father as his daughter battles a brain tumor. It’s a story Rob would give anything to have never written, but for the Proctors, it’s become a much larger story of faith, courage and perseverance.

Aside from writing this book, Rob is a director with a large insurance company. He lives in Alpharetta, Georgia with his wife Denni, daughter Katie, and son Brian.
