I always had books in my head, just never the time to get them out and available to others. As I approached retirement age, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to write. The ease of self-publishing makes writing a breeze now. My humor and interests are off beat, so that is reflected in my stories and I gravitate towards science fiction/fantasy with romantic entanglements in the plot lines.

I hope you find my work enjoyable, exciting enough to captivate your attention. My wish is for readers to laugh at my attempts at humor, evoke a tear during the sad parts and warm your heart with the romantic portions.

Merl and Artie: A Modern Day Tale of Excalibur by Robert Gaspari. Book cover
Much of what people today believe about the legend of King Arthur comes from romanticized accounts written in the middle ages. Even more comes from fictionalized movie epics and small screen edited programming. Tales of the great warrior king became lost or confused as oral traditions passed down his exploits over time and written accounts were almost non-existent. Even his title of the once and future king became a misunderstanding about his return to power.
