    writer Robert  

I first tried writing a book when I was 14, just to have the experience. It was an introduction to astronomy, the only topic I knew a lot about at the time. I completed eight hand-lettered and illustrated pages before realizing that I was in over my head. Twenty years passed before I actually wrote an entire book and got it published. Since then, I’ve authored more than 30 books in a variety of genres, including fiction, humor, self improvement, word play, and inspiration.

Some of my most popular titles are shown below (click any cover to see more details). All are available at amazon.com. For a complete list of my books, see my Author page.
