"Don, writing the letter to my dad was very cleansing. I actually cried as I was finishing it. I have never cried emotionally over my father before. I actually felt closer to him than I have ever felt. Thanks for giving me that gift." Wally "Famous" Amos. "Dear Dad, I wanted to always tell you that I hate you because you left me when I was only three..." Shameka--age 12. You will likely see yourself and your father in this book. Roberts' unique idea of having the writer talk directly to his father, instead of just about him, makes the exercise very intimate. Each letter captures a moment in time in the writer's life. Roberts asked them to sit down and, at that moment, write a letter to their father and say whatever they wanted to say to him as if he would read it TODAY.

About the author (2004)

Mr. Roberts has had a sustained interest in children and their activities going far beyond those of his own childhood or those of his five "Boomer" kids. His childhood was split between Harrisburg, Pa., Havre de Grace Md., and Lanster, Pa.

After serving in the U.S. Navy during the final stage of WWII, he received a B.S. in Education, and went on to teach for several years. He then joined the staff of RCA in Lancaster, Pa., while continuing his education at night. Mr. Roberts worked in a variety of engineering assignments at Marion, Indiana and Puerto Rico as well as Lancaster. He also fulfilled company commitments abroad in England, Germany, Italy and Soviet Union. During his tenure with the electronics giant, he took time away from work to sit on numerous educational boards and committees. Upon retirement from RCA, he was employed as an engineering consultant in The Peoples Republic of China.

The author now lives with his wife, Joan in the Gretna Springs Community of Lebanon County, Pa., where he devotes himself to reading, writing and painting. The author has previously written a book for the general public called "TREMOLO.
