Spotlight On Indie Author Anthony Roberts
indie author Anthony Roberts

I was born in a small Kansas farm town and moved to Saudi Arabia in 1971. I lived for two years in sweltering heat of Al Khobar, and then another three on the high plains of Taif. When I was 12 years old my father bought me a Suzuki 125 Enduro. From then on I cruised around the Saudi Arabian desert, running into the occasional band of Beduins and having adventures the envy of any high-spirited boy.

In 1975 we came back to find the United States mired in recession. Dad managed to find a job half-way around the world working for the Shah of Iran. I attended High School at Tehran American School up until the fall of 1978 when the revolution reared its ugly head. After the fire at the Cinema Rex in Abadan, followed by Black Friday in Tehran, my mother, sister and I boarded a plane and headed back to the States. My father didn

Four Trails: A Quartet of Country Tales

FREE at Smashwords! Four Trails is a quartet of stories with country roots that stretch beyond the cowboy genre. Included are three short stories and the novella, "Honky Tonk Gal." These aren't your grandfather's campfire tales. From knocking at heaven's door to beer drinkin', hell raisin' and wrasslin' with deadly vipers, these wild west stories run the gamut of emotions. Each story is completely different from the next but all are tied to the land. A 92 year old Japanese Hawaiian paniolo dreams of unrequited love, a small-town loser entertains a stranger with tales of rattlesnake hunting in the badlands for Texas, a preacher's grandson confronts his lack of faith as he stares into the abyss, and when push comes to shove, a cowgirl's gotta do what a cowgirl's gotta do. Four different trails, four different tales. All for FREE at Smashwords. Enjoy!

Sons of the Great Satan

When American teenager Joey Andrews and his family arrive in Tehran, Iran in 1976 they find an expatriate paradise within one of the world's oldest civilizations. Through the bold and imperious leadership of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, this ancient land had been thrust into the modern age bringing great progress to some and seething resentment to others. It is the twilight of an empire, and the last golden hours before the fall of darkness.

Sons of the Great Satan leads the reader through a cataclysmic event as seen through the lives of the Andrews family of Peligrosa, Texas and the Zadehs of Tehran, Iran. Joey Andrews and Farhad Zadeh form a unique friendship amid a naive wonderland of teenage sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, only to see their world explode into a firestorm of violence that rocks a nation.

As a work of historical fiction, Sons of the Great Satan is a tale of culture clash, international politics, heroism, friendship, cowardice and sinister betrayal. Integrity and belief are put to the test as the Shah of Iran, President Jimmy Carter and the Ayatollah Khomeini are engulfed in a whirlwind of chaos and rebellion. From the White House to Niavaran Palace to the streets of Tehran, the actions of the powerful and the dispossessed play out on the world stage forever changing the lives of those who called Tehran home in the late 1970s.
