Robert M. Yelverton


First and foremost I am a story teller. A weaver of tales you might say. You will find my story telling to cross many genres. I can't help it. An idea will pop into my head and then grow. I do not control the ideas genres, nor do I control the stories unfolding.

Why do I tell stories? Well mainly to shut the characters up. They do not stop whispering in my head until their story is told.

Oh, also you the reader. Yes, I have to admit that I tell stories for your entertainment. My characters depending on genre and what they are doing will try to make you laugh, cry, hold your breath, bring you to the front of your seat, and so on.

They want to entertain you. So on behalf of all the whispering people in my head I hope you enjoy the ride of what ever story you choose to read.

This is my story. It is a true story. It is my journey from the first time I picked up a cigarette to my success of laying them down forever. For myself, that was a long journey, but for you I will take the heavily edited route. No novel here. At times, it will be humorous, scathing, self-indulgent, and so on. At times I will be putting it to the big boys, including Big Tobacco, the FDA, TV,....

"It Waits" now has a new beginning, new middle, and a new ending. It has been totally reworked. It is now a true short story in the horror fiction genre. Somewhere out there It Waits. It is very hungry.

  • My Operation on Dec. 27, 2010

    I have to say that I did enjoy reading this. It to me resembles a diary entry. But the gentleman has a good sense of humor which shines through even though he is about to face a scary ordeal in the near future. A Good Work!
  • My Operation: Part 2 on Dec. 27, 2010

    I have just concluded the second part. It is another work that I did enjoy. Thank You for a look inside your life albeit a brief one. I am right there beside you in understanding how to "vital" checks can be annoying. Been there, done that. The sense of humor once again came through. Thank You, and I am glad that everything came out alright.
