Meet Kenneth Lewis Roberts, (1885 – 1957) famed writer of historical novels, distinguished local citizen and irritable neighbor.
A study of Roberts’ life reveals a complex, driven personality. In a writing career that spanned almost 40 years Roberts established himself as a prominent writer of historical novels. At the same time, Roberts’ intense focus on his writing created some stressful moments for people outside his immediate family and close circle of friends. In many ways he epitomized the independence and high principles of the characters he wrote about in his novels.
