Meet the Author

Detroit area resident, Bob Moats, has been writing short stories and plays for as long as he can remember. He has lost most of his original stories, typed or handwritten, in the numerous moves he has made from his hometown of Fraser, Michigan to Northern Michigan, to Las Vegas and back to Fraser, where he now Resides. He also wrote the short fantasy novella "Crystal Prison of Kyr" and is a published playwright with his three act comedy "Happily Ever After".

Moats became one of the causalities of unemployment early in 2009, and had time on his hands to finally pursue a life long dream of writing a full blown crime novel. Thus was born the first book, "Classmate Murders".

What followed was a series of 20 books starting with "The Classmate Murders" which introduces the main character, Jim Richards

Another fast read. I would rate his books higher but this author seriously needs a good editor! Again, multiple spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. It seems that Bob Moats has some difficult putting together a properly constructed sentence. The story itself was better than some but as with the first 5 in the series, it was very easy to figure out who the killer was.

I'm working my way through the Jim Richard's books. Even though there seems to be a lack of editing, LOVE them all! Comparable to Stephanie Plum reads. THANK YOU, Bob Moats for a great series!
