Bob’s latest major work is a children’s book: The Cactus Who Wanted to Be a Christmas Tree (Gypsy Publications, 2014). He has also self-published Some Poems About Life: (30 Actually) Gems of Wit & Wisdom and the children’s book Sunny and Victor: Best Friends Forever. His books are available on,, and at his website,, which also serves as his blog.

Bob currently works as a substitute teacher and writes whatever inspires him in his spare time. (Caricature by Greg Shelton)
