AUTHOR BIO

Hello, my name is Robbie, short for Roberta. I am an author with seven published children’s picture books in the Sir Chocolate books series for children aged 2 to 9 years old (co-authored with my son, Michael Cheadle), one published middle grade book in the Silly Willy series and one published preteen/young adult fictionalised biography about my mother’s life as a young girl growing up in an English town in Suffolk during World War II called While the Bombs Fell (co-authored with my mother, Elsie Hancy Eaton). All of my children’s book are written under Robbie Cheadle and are published by TSL Publications.

I also have a book of poetry called Open a new door, with fellow South African poet, Kim Blades.

I have recently branched into adult and young adult horror and supernatural writing and, in order to clearly differential my children’s books from my adult writing, I plan to publish these books under Roberta Eaton Cheadle. My first supernatural book published in that name, Through the Nethergate, is now available.

I have participated in a number of anthologies:

  • Two short stories in #1 Amazon bestselling anthology, Dark Visions, a collection of horror stories edited by Dan Alatorre under Robbie Cheadle;
  • Three short stories in Death Among Us, an anthology of murder mystery stories, edited by Stephen Bentley under Robbie Cheadle;
  • Three short stories in #1 Amazon bestselling anthology, Nightmareland, a collection of horror stories edited by Dan Alatorre under Robbie Cheadle; and
  • Two short stories in Whispers of the Past, an anthology of paranormal stories, edited by Kaye Lynne Booth under Roberta Eaton Cheadle.

    • I make the oat cookies for my mother, Miriam. She likes to eat them and she is sooooo skinny. She has a lot of trouble with her stomach and doesn’t eat much. If she likes it, I make it for her. I am delighted you have enjoyed the fondant cat parade. I enjoyed creating the slides for this tour.

      • Robbie, I remember when my daughter was little, she didn’t eat too much. The pediatrician said give her anything she liked to eat, like ice cream. Yes, eating what your mom likes is better than eating too little. I hope she would do well.
        I’m happy for your wonderful blog tour.

    • Thank you, Jill. I am glad you are enjoying this tour. I wish Amazon didn’t charge so much for these books [my publisher says its because of the colour photographs]. They are much nicer as a paperback and children love them. Some of them lick the pages which is so cute.
