About Robert

Robert Forte is a multi-talented American screenwriter and author. In the last 20 years, he has written for virtually every stage, from the small screen to large silver screen. Robert has written and produced seven stage plays, three television sitcoms, one musical, four screenplays and now his first crime novel, The Woman in the Yellow Dress. The Yellow Dress is based on his original screenplay and the first in the Patrick Miles Atwater Trilogy. Robert  also writes original music and has six screenplays in various stages of development.

Born in 1947 in East Orange, New Jersey, Robert met his wife Evelyn in high school, reuniting 40 years later. Since 2012, they have lived in Johnstown, Pennsylvania where Robert has served on the Inclined Plane for 3 years as an Operator, including raising support to preserve this “Jewel of Johnstown,” as Robert calls it.

Robert studied philosophy at Monmouth College (now Monmouth University) before hitting the road with his rock band. These experiences as an aspiring rock star gave Robert the idea of creating On Tour® The Board Game in 1985. The game gives participants the thrill of forming a garage band and going on tour with the goal of making to the top of the Billboard charts.

Although Robert’s last name sounds French, he is of Irish-Welsh decent and was raised in an Italian family after he and his sister, Lori, were adopted as the ages of 6 and 9, respectively.

Reviews

Forte’s filmmaking background certainly benefits his narrative style. By describing and moving through each scene as though it were a single frame on a roll of celluloid film, he paints a picture so real it’s easy to imagine his characters and settings right in front of your eyes. If you dare to lose yourself in the dark underbelly the 1940s Los Angeles, The Woman in the Yellow Dress is available for purchase on Amazon.

I am loving this book! I’m on chapter six & having a hard time putting it down! Keeps your constant interest…trying to figure out “who dun it”! Characters are well described…you can put a face on all of them. Rather easy read…I highly recommend!

Last night I picked up “The Woman In The Yellow Dress” and I read to about page 50 – was very tired and went to sleep.  I woke up and was in SOOOOO MUCH SUSPENSE…I picked the book up and finished it tonight! I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! GOOD JOB! I felt like I was having anxiety at times and the suspense would not allow me to put it down!!! I loved it!!!
