Robert W. Lundrigan was born and raised in the beautiful community of Upper Island Cove. There, the kindness of the people and the richness of the social fabric supported him in striving to be the best version of himself. He graduated from Memorial University and began his career working with the Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation for three years. He then became an educator for the next twenty-nine years. After retiring from teaching, Robert spent the next fourteen years as a business and political consultant. He continues to write and enjoys his time with his wife, Bernice, their two adult children, and their families. Robert also loves spending early summer mornings in their small fishing boat.
Robert and Bernice have made the lovely community of Spaniard’s Bay their home since 1980.
Flanker Press is a bright spark in the Newfoundland and Labrador publishing scene. As the province’s most active publisher of trade books, the company now averages twenty new titles per year, with a heavy emphasis on regional non-fiction and historical fiction.
The mission of Flanker Press is to provide a quality publishing service to the local and regional writing community and to actively promote its authors and their books in Canada and abroad.
Now located in Paradise, Flanker Press has grown from a part-time venture in 1994 to a business with eight full-time employees. In the fall of 2004, Flanker Press launched a new imprint, Pennywell Books. This imprint includes literary fiction, short stories, young adult fiction, and children’s books.
