The Harden name goes back 300 years, if not more. Rob Harden delves into that history of the Harden family through every generation. Rob’s first book, Harden’s Shadows, takes historical evidence and creative writing to paint the picture of nine different stories, or shadows. Rob graduated from Purdue University in economics and Ball State University with a master’s degree in marketing. He and his wife established three rehabilitation facilities for persons with disabilities and those with barriers to employment. He came back to Pypeline Editing for the professional editing of his second book, which should be published later this year.
