Robert L. Dorman was born and raised in Oklahoma. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in history, Dorman continued his education elsewhere. However, being absent from Oklahoma only fueled his love and interest of the state's unique history. It Happened in Oklahoma is his third book on regional American history. He lives in Edmond, Oklahoma.
