I write science fiction, fantasy, Kansas history, railroad history, and on occasion I write about writing. I've had six novels published, as well as over 80 short stories, 120 articles, and over a dozen nonfiction books. I love telling stories!

Here are a few other places you can find me-

If you like what I write, you can help me out. Naturally, you can buy copies of my stuff at Amazon, Smashwords, and elsewhere. You can also post reviews of my work at places like Goodreads, as well as where you buy books. If you have a website or blog, mention that you've read and liked something. Heck, those are nice things to do for any author here whose work you enjoy.

If you're just starting out -- write every day; set a goal (pages/words per day); plan your stories in advance; & have several ideas to work on. The more you write, the better your work will get.

Happy reading!

First, thank you to all my new followers. I hope you enjoy some of my work.

Speaking of work, the fourth book in the Lisa Herbert series, "Lisa's Truths," is now out. The first few chapters have just been posted here. I also have some information about it at my blog: http://robertlcollins.blogspot.com/2014/12/lisa-herbert-4.html.

I've also updated my blog. There are now pages for my various series that should help visitors find books in each series.

For those of you who celebrate, I hope you have a happy holiday season!
