Casey Robb, Writer

Welcome to my website!  My name is Casey Robb.    


Do you like real-life stories with eccentric characters?  Poignant family dramas?  A bit of goof, intense danger, or romance?  Then you might be my reader.


Some of my stories have appeared in Menda City Review, Fiction on the Web, Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, The Literary Nest, and Kaleidoscope.  And my poetry has won many awards.  


So who am I?  An ex-physical therapist and civil engineer.  And some of my many quirks include: world traveler, history buff, equestrian in my youth, and Spanish speaker who lived two years in Mexico and landed in a Mexican jail (yikes!).  And saving the best for last ... a single adoptive mom -- now that's an adventure!

After being abandoned by her mother as a child, and then enduring a fiery relationship with her dad, Cheryl’s accident is her last straw.

Cheryl and her freewheeling hippie boyfriend, Brett, decide to move to the country for the tranquility of homestead living.

Cheryl is a spitfire who stands up to the cowboy, Travis, who threatens her with violence. But the cowboy’s son, Russ, has other ideas.

Will Cheryl be able to continue her stance against Travis? Will Russ bow down to his dad or will he take the initiative? Will Cheryl stay a hippie or return to her cowgirl roots? And will Cheryl finally see free-loving Brett for who he is, and open her heart to real love?
