Swashbuckling Author! Musketeer stories, Pirate stories, and much more; Adventurous, Historical Fiction in the classical style with a modern twist!

Background Information

Greetings, my friends, I am Ted Anthony Roberts, and I am a Swashbuckling Author - which basically means that my influences to become an artist by pen stroke have been merrily developed by such brilliant authors as Alexandre Dumas, Rafael Sabatini, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, Howard Pyle, Daniel Defoe and, indeed, a host of many others!

If the imagination will allow one to embrace the dexterity of The Three Musketeers, the derring-do of Robin Hood, the chivalry of Ivanhoe, and even the valor of King Arthur, then one will have a good idea of what my writing techniques are all about!

And, of course, I have also plastered my textual paintings by the exceptional viewings of some of Hollywood's most dashing cavaliers of the silver screen, in the likes of Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Louis Hayward, Douglas Fairbanks (Sr. and Jr.), and even by the swash-comic intrigues of both Bob Hope and Danny Kaye!

Now, dear reader, take these two worlds (swash-literature and swash-cinema), blend them happily together, sprinkled with a dash of modern ideas, and the end product will be the accomplishments of my novels!

I have been a European historian and writer for the past twenty years, experimenting with different story ideas along the way; and as a result of my swashbuckling and historical interests, I have created a website that reflects these historical diggings - which is called The Swashbuckling Press (see below for the web address).

The way that I see myself is that I am a modern writer with an old-fashioned feel within my written words. So, again, considering the techniques of these classic swashbuckling writers of the recent past, and with these said swash-movie experiences, I truly combine proven enthusiastic literature along with modern textual ideas, and I mesh them altogether to create my own unique style.

I invite you to view samples of my works here, and if you have been moved by  them, then please leave me a review of what you have thought.

As an attachment, I have included the Introduction and first two chapters of my newest novel which is available for sale: "The Adventures of Monsieur de La Donaree the Musketeer." But I have also included other story ideas as well, along with a swash-poem! And for even more swash-literature, visit my official website (address below).

Thanks for visiting!
