Robbie Cheadle – January 2019 to Present

You can catch Robbie’s “Growing BookWorms” the second Wednesday and “Treasuring Poetry” the fourth Saturday of each month.

IMG_9902Hello, my name is Robbie, short for Roberta. I am an author with six published children’s picture books in the Sir Chocolate books series for children aged 2 to 9 years old (co-authored with my son, Michael Cheadle), one published middle grade book in the Silly Willy series and one published preteen/young adult fictionalised biography about my mother’s life as a young girl growing up in an English town in Suffolk during World War II called While the Bombs Fell (co-authored with my mother, Elsie Hancy Eaton). All of my children’s book are written under Robbie Cheadle and are published by TSL Publications.

I have recently branched into adult horror and supernatural writing and, in order to clearly differential my children’s books from my adult writing, I plan to publish these books under Roberta Eaton Cheadle. I have two short stories in the horror/supernatural genre included in Dark Visions, a collection of 34 short stories by 27 different authors and edited by award winning author, Dan Alatorre and three short stories included in Death Among Us, an anthology of murder mystery stories edited by award winning author, Stephen Bentley. These short stories are published under Robbie Cheadle.

I have recently published a book of poetry called Open a New Door, with fellow South African poet, Kim Blades.

Art Rosch – January 2019 to Present

You can catch Art’s “Mind Fields” the last Wednesday,

and “Art’s Visual Media Reviews” the last Friday of most months.

Art Rosch

A Midwesterner by birth, Arthur Rosch migrated to the West Coast just in time to be a hippie but discovered that he was more connected to the Beatnik generation. He harkened back to an Old School world of jazz, poetry, painting and photography. In the Eighties he received Playboy Magazine’s Best Short Story Award for a comic view of a planet where there are six genders. The timing was not good.  His life was falling apart as he struggled with addiction and depression. He experienced the reality of the streets for more than a decade. Putting himself back together was the defining experience of his life. It wasn’t easy. It did, however, nurture his literary soul. He has a passion for astronomy, photography, history, psychology and the weird puzzle of human experience. He is currently a certified Seniors Peer Counselor in Sonoma County, California. Come visit his blogs and photo sites. and

Robin Conley – June 2016 to June 2017

Robin hasn’t been an active contributor for awhile, but her weekly and monthly writing “Memo” still receive a considerable amount of views, so I think it only fair to include her here. She covered all kinds of writing topics, from the parts of a scene to the uses of flashbacks.

RobinRobin Conley has a background in novel and screenwriting. She had challenged herself and her writing abilities by writing a short story a day for a year, and called it Project 365. Not only did she challenge herself, but she took it public, updating her following of her progress and posting each one for their reading enjoyment.  She also happens to be an exceptional line and developmental editor. These days you may be able to catch her writing on her own blog, Author the World.
