Who’s That Indie Author? Robbie Cheadle

Author name:  Robbie Cheadle

Genre:  Children, poetry and supernatural/horror for adults

Books:  The Sir Chocolate series of books for young readers (3 to 9 years): 1. Sir Chocolate and the Strawberry Cream Berries; 2. Sir Chocolate and the Baby Cookie Monster; 3. Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Dough Bees; 4. Sir Chocolate and the Condensed Milk River; 5. Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Crystal Cave

The Sir Chocolate books are about a little man who lives in a world where you can eat everything, even the houses and the trees. I co-authored these books with my younger son, Michael. Sir Chocolate and his friend, Lady Sweet, have adventures together as various problems crop up in Chocolate Land such as the Baby Cookie Monster who has lost his mother and who is causing havoc while he searches for her and the Condensed Milk River which mysteriously dries up. The Sir Chocolate books are aimed at providing entertainment for parents and children and include simple recipes and biscuit art that children love making.

Silly Willy Goes to Cape Town (8 to 10 years) is a story and includes step-by-step instructions on how to make fondant art figurines and flowers and five lovely party cake recipes and instructions.

While the Bombs Fell (9 years upwards) is a fictionalized autobiography of my mother’s life as a very young girl growing up in the English town during World War II. It includes a few authentic WWII recipes.

When did you begin your writing career?  I was first published in August 2016 and started writing a few years before that.

What’s your approach to writing? Are you a “pantser” or a planner?  I have the basic story line in my head when I start and then I go from there. I suppose that makes me a bit of both as I go off in new directions when I start writing.

What’s your working style – morning or late-night writer?  Definitely morning, I am not a good night time person at all.

Do you work at a computer or write long-hand?  Long-hand? What is that? Just kidding, definitely I write on a computer.

What gets those words flowing, coffee or tea?  Tea, I get up at 5 a.m. most days and make tea before I do anything else.

Favorite book:  The Shining by Stephen King (Adult) and Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder (children)

Favorite movie:  I don’t watch movies or TV.

Favorite musician:  I like Queen (Freddie Mercury)

  1. I had to smile when I read the genres you write: Genre: Children, poetry and supernatural/horror for adults
    Talk about one end of the spectrum to the other. 🙂
    Enjoyed the interview, Robbie and Barbara. I love Robbie’s books!

    1. Thank you, Jacquie. I think it is a bit unusual although there are other children’s authors who dabble in supernatural like Janice Spina. That is why I have the two blogs now, I didn’t think the two genres mixed well. Thanks for reading.

    1. Thanks for coming over to visit Robbie, Jill! 🙂 I haven’t seen the new Queen movie, have you? I usually wait until I can get movie DVDs at the library, so I’m always behind in my “movie-going”!

      1. We used to have a weekly free daytime movie at a Regal theater near us during the summers and I took the kids to them all the time, but the “free” movie is now $5.00 and the guys are grown! 😂

      1. My family watches a lot of sports on TV, but no one watches shows. Although my adult kids stream a lot of series on their devices. We’re actually thinking of “cutting the cord” to our cable world!

  2. Hi- how much fun it is to learn more about Robbie! I applaud your ‘no TV or movies,’ Robbie. Although I hear the new movie about Freddie Mercury is pretty fabulous. 🤓 We may have a big time difference between our two countries, but we both get up early in the morning and drink our tea!

Tell me what you're thinking!
