Bobby Michaels, whose books I absolutely adore and who was one of the first interviews on my old blog, passed away yesterday morning at about 3.00 A.M.
Bobby was an incredible writer and human being, and despite his many serious illnesses he continued to write those wonderful books which garnered him many fans.
Bobby had a stroke years ago and he had to relearn how to type, which made his achievements even more remarkable. Several weeks ago Bobby had a severe fall which resulted in a broken shoulder, and he was recuperating at home having been released from a care facility where he spent a few weeks.
Most of Bobby’s books have been reviewed on the site because, as I mentioned earlier, I’m a huge fan and I’m going to miss him as will all of his other fans. If you want to know more about Bobby and his books here’s his interview of November 5, 2008 which gives you a small window into his life. It’s very funny but when I re-read the interview I realized I had mentioned that his books were considered to be pushing the envelope because he was so frank about sex. : 😆 That comment probably gave him a few chuckles if he read any M/M romances written in the past couple of years.
