CAMELOT FOREVER is the first novel written by Robert and in collaberation with Bill M. Nichols. But he’s been around publishing for along time.
Robert has worked in the comic book industry, in several different aspects, for many years. Twenty five years ago Robert and his brother Mike started Blue Line Art, the company that prints borders on comic art boards used by many professional artists publishers in the comic industry.
Not happy with only supplying artists with paper Blue Line created bluelinepro.com, an online art store focused on offering art supplies specifically for the comic book artist.
He next created Sketch Magazine, a periodical that offers professional tutorials on every aspect of comic book creation and has been acting publisher for inception.
Even before Blue Line Robert had his hand in creating comics. His projects range from time-traveling agents to superheroes and, most recently, following the adverventures of a child with learning differences. Robert has over 12 properties currently in development for comics, online web comics and merchandise in the Afterbunr Network.
None of these accomplishments are quite as close to Robert’s heart as his current project ClaysWay.com. Clay’s Way not only took years of preparation by Robert but over 12 years of resource research by his wife Katie. Clay’s Way is a comic strip based loosely on Robert, his wife and their two sons and how they deal with their son’s day to day life with Dyslexia and ADHD. Clay’s Way has over 140 comic strips posted online. A Resource area about ADHD and Dyslexia is available on at claysway.com. He currently is working on publishing the first Clay’s Way graphic novel.
Outside of publishing Robert and his partners has opened a successful video game store (more here www.nostalgicvideogames.com) and local thrift store called Nostalgic Bazaar in Northern Kentucky.
