UnderBelly – Upcoming New Book!

Rebecca is working on edits to my new book and my cover designer is hard at work to come up with the perfect book cover.

UnderBelly is the third book in a continuing story. In the first book, Naked Tao, the reader meets Grant Li, a young lawyer with a taste for adventure. When he learns that his big client has developed a dangerous bio-weapon, he sets out to stop them. Along the way, he joins forces with his childhood sweetheart, Ginny Bardough, a total babe. In the second book, Nostrum Conspiracy, Ginny sets out to find her missing father but disappears in the Amazon Rainforest. Grant goes after her. While he is in the forest, he receives an unexpected gift of a rare medicine from a mysterious group of people. In book three, UnderBelly, he and Ginny return home via the underworld with the new medicine. Together, they take on big pharma and a corrupt group of politicians in a high-stakes fight of epic proportions that could shift the balance of power.

I draw on my own adventures and enthusiasm for the unbeaten path to write fast paced novels that take my readers to far off exotic places. It may come as no surprise that I want to be Indiana Jones when I grow up.

Peace out,

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
