Welcome to my writing showcase. You can access many goodies from here. Some are free, others will cost you a (very) few dollars. This is because I am not all that interested in money. Being of service is more satisfying.

Over the years, this website became more and more complex. Then I shifted most of my internet activity to my blog, and poor old bobswriting.com got neglected. So, I have now simplified it, and hopefully given it a new life.

Eighteen of my books have been published.
The first and most successful, the Earth Garden Building Book: Design and build your own house is now out of print, having been continuously available between 1986 and 2018, in four editions. If you have a copy sitting on a shelf, I can put you in touch with people who would love to buy it from you.
Woodworking for Idiots Like Me sold 60,000 copies in the 1990s. It isn't suited to modern e-formats because of the many diagrams, so I have reworked it as a sort of a giant webpage. It's a series of amusing short stories, some autobiographical. Each story has a woodcraft lesson. By following the instructions you can do many projects, up to constructing a rocking chair.
Although I am retired now from my psychological counselling practice, you can still consult me. My answers to fifty cries of despair are available for only $5 Australian. Because this is doubly indexed to make it more useful, I've also made it into a webpage rather than a modern format.

The other books are all available in modern electronic formats, and some also as paperbacks. I won't list them here, because they are all in the navigation bar on the left side of the page.

I hope my writing will give you a great deal of enjoyment (if not, GO AWAY!), instruction, and inspiration. Do look around my blog, and if you approve, click the "follow" button there.

I wish you a fruitful and meaningful life, and when it ends, I hope you're a better person for the journey.
