He worked for a short time at the Belding Hemingway Company as a credit analyst before becoming a New York City Police Officer. Robert worked as a cop in Manhattan South; primarily in the 1st and 9th Precincts. Robert and his family moved to South Florida, where he worked at American Express Travel Related Services for fourteen years, most recently as their Regulatory Compliance Manager in American Express’ Ft. Lauderdale offices. 

Robert Fasone is the author of two novels: Bread Upon the Water and A Chase After Wind. 

According to the description of A Chase After Wind, “Neil “Momma” Mia was a lieutenant in the NYPD spearheading the narcotics war against Manual Cordova. His uneasy alliance with Don Gino Armenti led him to defy direct orders to save the Don’s son from Cordova. Momma did his job too well, and it all became personal when Cordova ordered the brutal murder of Mia’s wife. Neil threw down his badge and went on a bloody rampage seeking vengeance, leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Cordova sent a terrifying message: Christy Mia was next. Momma had to save his daughter, and with the assistance of Don Armenti, began a life on the run. Five years later Cordova took the one precious thing Neil Mia lived for…or did he…? The only way for Momma to find out was to pursue those responsible, not only to save Christy’s life, but to redeem his own…and discover the truth.”
