Trek Untold-Episode 149: Robb Pearlman Writes Star Trek Books for Kids and The Young at Heart

Robb Pearlman Writes Star Trek Books for Kids and The Young at Heart

Robb Pearlman is a professional writer and author of dozens of books, including Star Trek titles like “Fun with Kirk and Spock,” Redshirt's Little Book of Doom,” Star Trek: Prodigy: Supernova,” “Starfleet Is…” and many more. He's also got other nerdy titles for children and adults under his belt, with more on the way!

Robb tells us how he became a writer for a living, working with Paramount to make Trek books, some behind-the-scenes stories from the making of his sci-fi lit, the books that influenced him growing up, the art of editing and choosing “The best words” when you write children's literature, and whether politics belong in kids books. 

Plus, working with Don Bluth on his memoirs, the four authors he always goes to when he needs inspiration, and the books that changed his perspective on how he sees the world
