The list below represents Robert's three novels.

1) South of Main Street This was a work of love having Henry, the main character, drift into my psyche, sort of a vision really. Henry wasn't the kind of guy someone would invite to play softball or cards. He was too vulnerable. And that was the beginning of a storyline that drifted in and out of my mind for several years. Dixie, the woman in need, the addict, was a compliment character that erupted from nowhere ... well, actually, she came to life as someone close to me was having difficulties in finding balance in her life. Once these two characters met in my mind, the story progressed rather quickly. Here is the promoline: Mom dies and the youngest daughter sues the emotionally challenged Dad for financial control of the estate sending him on a quest to prove he is normal - not an easy task when you are not.

South of Main Street has found a new publisher in Arbuckle Publishing and was released in April, 2021.

2) Gods of Bell (a review by Exposition Press) In the late 70's, and resigned to a corporate life which offered financial security (of sorts) but little in way of artistic opportunities, I released my creative self in a piece of prose about two telephone employees who ran amok on the night tour by invading the public's privacy - a crime, of course, if taken as non-fiction. This fictional tale, viewed by some of my peers as a rebuke of the very company who was providing financial security, was also hailed by others as a bizarre and bold story that would either get me fired or make me famous. Well, neither happened. My bosses decided not to make a fuss over the little publicity it did get, and the book settled into obscurity. They only printed about 300 copies. The book never reached the shelves of the mainstream stores, but if you look hard you may find one or two libraries that have a copy. This story is NOT to be confused with the screenplay that bears the same name. The screenplay begins where this story leaves off. Here's the promoline: Overcome by a daily work routine that numbs their creativity, Charlie, and his prankster-friend Jimmy, indiscriminately break into public telephone conversations. At first they do it for comic relief, but soon they find they can puppeteer people's lives effortlessly and, if they are not careful, they could loose their jobs ... or worse.

3) GOING SOLO was written in 2006. I wanted to indulge in the writing opportunities provided by the psychological challenges of Debbie and her daughter that I couldn't explore in the screenplay and stage play versions of the story. Although writing for stage and screen provide their own challenges, I was limited by the inherent boundaries of these two mediums. Delving into the soul of an agoraphobic was enticing. A challenge. I took it and, hopefully, I did justice to the topic. Since Drew Keil came on board the writing project took on a new meaning and substance. It's much better of course, and currently we are in the process of writing the new version. Although we haven't found a publisher yet, we're hoping this year (2015) we will find one.
