Robert Williscroft, Navy Veteran & Author of “Operation White Out”

Robert has been a guest on the podcast before, but this time is talking about his latest book, Operation White Out. Tom Clancy might have said; “The only way to do all the things you’d like to do is to read” but he never met Robert Williscroft. Robert has spent a lifetime taking adventures most to us only read about. Have you spent 22 months underwater or a year at the South Pole? Robert has and so much more. His love for adventures has led him to author over 17 books and hundreds of articles, both fiction and nonfiction.


He has a degree in Marine Physics and Meteorology and a doctorate “for developing a system to protect SCUBA divers in contaminated water.” From the Arctic to the South Pole and a year at the equatorial Pacific are just a few of the many places Robert has been.


Operation White Out by Robert WilliscroftRobert’s journey as an author began as a young kid. He shares, “When I was a teenager, I wrote a science fiction story, the editor, bless his heart, wrote me a letter back and said, you got a ways to go kid, but keep at it.” That is what he did! His bestseller, Operation Ivy Bells blends his own personal experience on that mission with fictional characters. The fourth book in the Mac McDowell Series, Operation White Out was released this year.

Until now.
