A Message from Robert F. Lee

The imagery elicited from the poetry of Robert Frost inspires a craving for that road less travelled in life: the path uniquely cradling the dreams and passions that well-crafted words express.
If my writings are able simply to touch fleetingly on the magic that the treasured classic books of my youth provided, I will consider my efforts a success.
I invite you to wander through the samples of my stories.  Each of these books is available in traditional paperback or any of a variety of e-book formats, from my publishers.  Each of these novels also has a sample available, to enable you to gauge my writing style and to see if you are drawn further into the storylines. 
Please enjoy, and let me know your thoughts on my efforts to guide you down a road less travelled.
