Robbie Cheadle – January 2019 to Present
Catch Robbie on Wednesdays!
“Growing BookWorms” the second Wednesday and “Treasuring Poetry” the third Wednesday, and “Dark Origins” the fourth Wednesday of each month.
Hello, 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.

Arthur Rosch – January 2019 to Present
You can catch Arthur’s “The Many Faces of Poetry” the first Wednesday,
and his “Mind Fields” the first and third Fridays of most months.
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. www.artrosch.com and http://bit.ly/2uyxZbv.

Another series Arthur has contributed to Writing to be Read is “Art’s Visual Media Reviews” which ran sporadically on Fridays in 2019-2020.
Jeff Bowles – March 2017 to Present
Jeff is back with a new short fiction blog series!
It’s here! From the Mind of Jeff Bowles…
The first Wednesday of every month Jeff Bowles shares short fiction from the inner depths of his creative mind, written in the unique style in which only Jeff can write. Join us.
Jeff Bowles is a science fiction and horror writer from the mountains of Colorado. The best of his outrageous and imaginative work can be found in God’s Body: Book One – The Fall, Godling and Other Paint Stories, Fear and Loathing in Las Cruces, and Brave New Multiverse.

Past Team Members
Jordan Elizabeth – January 2019 to December 2019
Jordan’s “Writing for a Y.A. Audience” appeared on the third Wednesday of each month in 2019.
Jordan Elizabeth is a young adult fantasy author. She may or may not be staring at a supposedly haunted house trying to see faces in the windows. You can connect with Jordan – and point her in the direction of some paranormal activity – via her website, JordanElizabethBooks.com.
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.
Robin 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.
