Rob Parnell has been teaching online since 2002, specifically helping writers earn money from their passion. He is the proud founder of The Writing Academy, an online school dedicated to student success and authorial excellence.

Rob has published over thirty number-one best-selling books on genre fiction authorship, freelance writing, motivation, productivity; getting rich, staying thin and healthy. When it comes to making a living from writing, composing music, and creating film projects, Rob is a man who knows what he's talking about! You'll enjoy his down-to-earth style and the feeling Rob somehow knows you like a friend!

Rob has been writing since he was five years old. He writes every day without fail - it's a compulsion - and he still hasn't run out of things to say... His preferred genre is the thriller - sometimes with a supernatural edge - in which he writes short stories, novels, screenplays, and adult thrillers - including his Purge detective novels and the popular Sherlock Holmes: Zombie Slayer series. Also a musician and composer, an accomplished singer, media producer and budding movie maker, Rob is ecstatically happy to be married to Robyn Opie Parnell, his savior, and the popular best-selling children's author.

They live miles from anywhere in their beautiful country farmhouse, its eleven acres tucked within inches of the stunning Flinders Ranges, with their beloved pets, Wally the dog and the cats: Jessie, Iggy (because he's The Wild One) and their latest, Lucky.

MY first course with Rob's Academy The Mini Fiction Writing Course.

by Sigurjon Helgi Kristjansson
I have written articles etc. for a long time, and wanted to try my hand at writing fiction, and decided first to do it on my own, but soon saw, I was missing something. I learned a long time ago, that if you take a course, and learn even just one thing from it, or learn to do things differently or even learn to step back and review. The course is worth it. So I decided to try this free course, and WOW, was it worth it. I have since bought other courses, and am working my way through The Crime Fiction Course (am 44% completed). Like this one, it is totally worth it. I can honestly say, that Rob is worth every penny, and what is more, he always takes time to get back to his students. That's worth more than words can say. Now I just keep on writing, and publishing online. Sigurjon Helgi Kristjansson (Sigurjón Helgi Kristjánsson)

Short and Simple

by Shelley Williams
I actually thought about enrolling writing courses, which would have been an expense. I'm not terribly confident about my writing. I'm pleased that this course was short, simple, and sweet. I may still enroll in classes but the difference now is I'm more confident in my writing.
