In the novel The Devil's Palm, a West Virginia sheriff, Terrance Fowlkes, attempts to enrich himself by building an illegal casino on a beautiful piece of countryside owned by old timer, Andy Mehrhaus. Fowlkes and his bogus deputies run a car over Mehrhaus in the middle of the night. With the property in his pocket, Fowlkes attacks the locals who block the construction of his so-called family resort. Blackmail and murder clear the way, but Michael Hanover, a community leader, remains in his path. After Fowlkes thinks he has mortally wounded Hanover, he builds the casino. Fowlkes succumbs to the curse of the Devil's Palm at the resort's Christmas Eve grand opening.


Bob is screaming and kicking while being pushed into his elder years. The first edition of Bob’s novel, The Devil’s Palm, has been met with excellent reviews. He is happy to see it republished. Besides writing, Bob keeps busy singing in his church choir and the Voices of Faith Chorale. Recently, his ukulele group had their first gig at a nursing home. He is an ardent fan of the Baltimore Ravens and tries to attend all home games. Teaching an adult Sunday school class rounds out his extra-curricular activities. His short story, “The House,” was included in an anthology of short fiction titled, First Light. He was happy when his second novel, Winter Warrior, was recently printed. Bob lives with his wife, Carol, in Perry Hall, Maryland.
