About Robert Schobernd

Hi, my name is Bob Schobernd. I publish my writing as Robert Schobernd.
I primarily write in the crime category. My crime stories started with a trilogy character study detailing an assassin’s rise and fall. The trilogy title is Irrevocable Change and the individual books are: Reverse Metamorphosis, The Assassin Evolves, and The Devil's Homecoming. These stories are about coarse criminals and focus on the life experiences of an assassin and how his actions affect his family and friends.
The first series I’ve written is the Carter A. Johnson novels. They depict a vigilante who invokes double jeopardy on criminals he determines to be guilty. The first story is The Blonde Heiress, a novella length introduction to the series. The second novel is The Dogtrot Murder. That story follows the prison internment of a wife convicted of killing her husband and Carter’s efforts to free her. A third story in the series is Cape Abigail, and its setting is the coast of Maine. Here Carter is joined by Kate Menke the prisoner in The Dogtrot Murder.
As a change of genre, I published a short (15,000 words), very dark thriller/horror story, titled 59 Hours. I’ll give you a hint; some people bloom, wilt and die in fifty nine hours.
In the near future I plan to continue with additional crime stories and also pursue other stories in the thriller/horror genre.

Thank you, I hope you enjoy my stories,

Review by: I. Readalot on Jan. 31, 2015 :
I'm a big fan of this author's writing. The editing in this short is very good, better than the average found here in my opinion. The characters are not your average people. But who wants to read about boring average folks. The setting is rural on a small farm. The time is when men wore hats and police cars had the single bubble gum looking red lights. The main characters even drove a Studebaker and stole a Hudson. I won't tell you more because I don't want to ruin it for you, but it's a very dark but different and good read.

For such a short story 59 Hours was full of surprises. Boy, are these people bad. I liked that the author didn't place the year or location of the story. In my opinion it could be any of a dozen or more states in or near the mid-west. I liked it and recommend it highly. It's scary but a great read.

An excellent short read. Many twist and turns I couldn't see coming. The main characters are pure evil and deserving of the worst outcome. I highly recommend it.

59 Hours is a spellbinding story of a young farm girl with a vague past who strikes out on her own and meets a devious man with as many secrets as she is hiding. Kept me turning pages so I could reach the surprise ending. A great short read and I heartily recommend it .

Wow! When I read the description for this I detected it might be a little spooky. I just couldn't imagine how dark it would be in the end. A great short story with a surprise ending.

Schoebern's writing is powerful and very evocative. He handles the different points of view and a non-linear chronology with ease. His character's thoughts and ways, the decors are believable and seem authentic. The scenario and events are stunning and not predictable.
Read it!

"59 Hours by R. E. Schobernd was a good short thriller that left you saying "OMG" I did not see that coming. I read this very fast definitely not putting this one down until the end (25 minutes).

For Frances...all she wanted to love... from her mother and then Michael...it seems like Frances thought she had found someone to care about her after leaving her mothers place...after showing up at her cousin's (Mikey) place...where he wasn't present but there was Michael Smith (a friend of Mikey) who was showing Frances love and kindness...only was this for real? Now, this is the time that I say you must pick up "59 Hours" to find out just what is going on. Has Frances found love and how does murder and bank robbing fix into all of this?

I like the way the author presented this short story because it really turned out differently from my thought pattern and that ending...Wow!

For a quick short thriller I would recommend "59 Hours" to you as a good read.
