I have been writing since 1967. To date I have placed twelve novels with traditional publishers ranging from young adult to historical fiction. My novels received good reviews from Publishers Weekly and others. Over the past eight years I have indied eleven novels ranging from mysteries, humor, zanny love stories, literary, and an off the wall creative writing book based on a course I taught. I have worked for newspapers, outdoor magazines, and placed many short stories and poems with literary magazines.

The Lonely Cowboy

and felt like I was sitting at our dining table listening to you recount a traditional Swisher story. You write as you speak: same syncopation.
That was a hidden benefit that contributed to this reader's nostalgia! You have been working on this scenario for many years and I congratulate you on its publication!

Blurb on my latest novel.

“it ain't what it ain't”
Robert K. Swisher Jr.

“Lisa cleared the table, rinsed the dishes and put them in the dishwasher. I've always thought it is weird that before dishes are put in a dishwasher, they have to be washed off. It's like taking a shower, getting out of the shower, drying off and turning around and getting back in.”
