Bob Gale is an Oscar-nominated Screenwriter-Producer-Director, best known as co-creator, co-writer and co-producer of Back to the Future and its sequels. Gale was born and raised in suburban St. Louis, Missouri, where he attended public high school; he then moved to Los Angeles to major in Cinema at the University of Southern California. He has written over 30 screenplays. His other film credits include 1941, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Used Cars, and Interstate 60, the last of which he directed. His darker side is clearly seen in the 1992 movie Trespass, which he co-authored, and in his episode of Tales From The Crypt, “House of Horror,” which he wrote and directed. Gale has also written comic books, most notably issues of Spider-Man, Batman and Daredevil, thus proving to his father that he did not waste hours and hours reading comics in his youth. He lives in Southern California with his wife and their dog, and he still roots for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Retribution High is his second novel, the first being the novelization of his screenplay 1941.
