The Works of A.F. Roberts

Watch You Tube Book Trailer

THEN AND NOW  –  For over the past decade, under the pen name of A.F. Roberts, the stories of Cross Gate and now, Blood Light,  with its prequel, EmErika, have been the diligent passion of this writer’s creative outlet. Initially, the notion of becoming a writer seeking to get works published was not the goal. It was simply to get the storylines and characters trapped inside out – and onto pages.

The completion of the first two books, Cross Gate and Earth Gate (written as one) didn’t prove to purge ideas or characters away. If anything, it simply led to more – a third story, Cross-Over, creating a bonafide trilogy! It soon became clear that, to just be content in the action of writing them would be something of a waste. As an avid reader, it began to occur that the material coming forth was equally on-par with the novels being read.


This led to seeking out other authors at writers’ workshops, and eventually to Arizona Publishing Services who accepted and published Cross Gate Book 1 in 2016. For the next couple of years, this served the project well. Over time since then, however, book 2 failed to materialize. Not catastrophic in the grand scheme of things, but it brought to a cross-roads where the works by Roberts were headed; seeking new life elsewhere.


Contracting with Christian Faith Publishing brought about the fruition of the novel Blood Light! It was an excellent experience in terms of production, marketing and distribution; as well as linking up with some other great authors!

As far as future publishing projections for projects old and new, sights are set upon KINDLE DIRECT PUBLISHING and DRAFT 2 DIGITAL for all the books!

This is the current state-of-affairs with the novels of the Cross-Gate Trilogy, CG spinoff, Destiny Hawk, Blood Light, and BL prequel, EmErika. What was once only an effort in creative exploration has become a true calling to make a mark in this wonderful world of fictional writing.

The general content of the Roberts brand is young-to-mature adult supernatural, mixed with the Judeo/Christian ethic. As such, it becomes a genre unto itself, simply called ‘BIBLICAL PARANORMAL.’

  1. A.F. Roberts depicts a wondrous world of demons, shamans, and vampires in Blood Light.
    Addicting like Vampire Diaries, but with a lot more excitement and fascinating detail, Blood Light gives a true to life description of the paranormal. A world where the supernatural practice their powers unbeknown to man. This exciting tale will keep you on the edge of your seats.
    Father Christopher, a catholic priest, with an unusual calling, has a chance encounter with Charissa, a female vampire. From her first bite they are drawn to each other unexpectedly. With her visions of Christ, and her renewed spirituality, to his visions of her bloodlust past turning towards the Light of God. This relationship turns into something neither could predict.
    Charissa’s maker, different to any other paranormal; a witch doctor-shaman, who tries drawing her home with demonic dogs possessed by spelled cast jewelry, forces them to travel to the island where tribal rituals began. Without saying too much, this book will keep you biting your nails for more. And there is so – much – more!
    A.F. Roberts delivers an exceptional story about how even the worst kind of evil doesn’t stand a chance against the Holy Powers of GOD.
