About Robert Ropars

Just turned 40, living in the Chicago area since 1986 and into writing and photography. I'm a voracious reader and open to most genres. As an author, I've published "Carriage Returns" (poetry from 1988-2008) and "Romantic Confessions" (poetry and haiku 2008-2009).

In 2010, I started exploring e-books/e-readers and decided to publish a book in serial format. Dark Bites is a four-part horror e-book series. Four women... four tales of death and spine-tingling horror. Explore new twists on classic horror stories (zombies, werewolves, vampires and ghosts). These are the women of Dark Bites.

Order a copy of Dark Bites: Four Tales of Horror now! This collection contains an exclusive bonus short story/sequel to Windy City of the Dead called Dark Bites: Part 5 - As the Crow Flies.

Review by: Emma Meade on Sep. 02, 2011 : star star star star
Windy City of the Dead
I enjoyed this. There was plenty of action following a zombie outbreak in Chicago. Crow finds herself having to get armed and battle ready pronto if she wants to make it out of her apartment and the city alive. Luckily she just happens to find a Samurai sword in her neighbour's apartment (I thought that part was pretty funny).
Like Cats and Dogs
I'm not into werewolves or werenanimals that much so I found myself just skimming through this story.
The Red Planet
I appreciated this because it offers a new take on vampires. Set in the 24th century but dipping back to when Jenny became a vampire in the 21st century keeps the story moving along nicely.
848. This tale really disturbed me. It isn't supernatural but rather shows how horrific people can be. Brutal ending.
Overall I really enjoyed reading these tales and thought the female characters were strong, independent and well written. The endings leave you hanging though so I would love to read a follow up.

Review by: Lavyonne on April 11, 2011 : star star star star star
This was GREAT. I enjoyed the short stories tremendously. The strong female characters were a delight. I found myself getting frustrated with some of the endings because they didn't end the way that I wanted them to. However, that was one of the joys of this book. There are twist and turns that you don't expect and some of them will just plain piss you off.

The supernatural has always been a joy of mines and this book packs plenty of it in new and interesting ways. The author clearly did his research on Chicago, and even on the biological aspects of the human body.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good read.
