Open Letter from Bob Moats

On April 4th, 2009, I wrote the first paragraph to my first book, Classmate Murders. I had no idea how this journey of writing books would go. I'm now up to 32 of that series and five of another, and I can't seem to stop. The best aspects about my writing are the people who have sent me unsolicited email and online comments about how much they enjoy my books and even bought all of them to read. It honestly humbles me when I read the nice things they say about my characters. I put a lot of heart into my book characters and they are real to me. I believe they are my family and so are all the fans of the books. They share the same feelings I have for Jim and Penny and the gang. I hope the next number of years, if I live, will be as good as the last have been. Thank you from my heart to all the people who have read and enjoyed my books, Bob.


A Second Open Letter from Bob Moats

I just want to say that everyday I'm amazed by the readers of my books who send me emails or post comments on Facebook about how much they enjoy my books. I am truly moved by the good words readers write to me and those who participate in my little giveaways and send me pictures. I never tire of it. It's strange to say, but it amazes me when readers say they are in love with my books. I enjoy reading them myself, but I guess since I wrote them I don't understand the attraction to them. Maybe I'm too close to them and it takes away the joy of discovery in reading the books for the first time. Although I can read them again and enjoy them the second or third time. I hope to continue to write both the Jim and Penny books and the Sarah and Dave books for many years. It's now become a challenge for me to continue to write as though this were a television show, maintaining the quality of the stories, and hoping I don't get canceled. As long as people continue to read them and tell their friends about the books, I'll keep writing. So don't worry, as long as I'm alive, there will be more books. Thank you, Bob.

NEW! Book 2 Available Now!

An all new book by Bob Moats

"Doyle's Justice"

Story synopsis:
Art Doyle, private eye, having solved his first case after opening up his business, is now hot after a serial killer. Along with his partner, Oscar Drew, they have to keep ahead of the killer since he's been dropping bodies at Doyle's cabin in the woods. What is the reason the killer is targeting Doyle to receive the bodies is still to be determined and the case takes Doyle and Oscar to the woods and then down to the back streets of Detroit. Is the killer someone from Doyle's past who he did wrong? While Doyle works to catch the killer, he's being a little distracted by women, coming and going in his life. Will the hot female bartender end up dead or in Doyle's bed? Plenty of chases involving cops, street gangs, and an explosive ending that changes everything.

Doyle is back at it and doing it his own way.
