Reviews

"Rollicking, fresh, engaging, offbeat, zany, memorable." -Publishers Weekly

Robertson's "writing was electric and kept me entertained and thrilled from beginning to end! To conclude my thoughts on this brilliant tale, I would say if you are looking for an intriguing story that will thrill you from beginning to end then this excellent book is for you! This engaging tale gets Five Stars from me!" -Red Headed Book Lover Blog, September 3, 2017

"Love in the Cretaceous turns everything you learned from Jurassic Park on its head. In Robertson's Oregon, one hundred years from now, dinosaurs roam the earth, while humans are busy cutting off their own exit. Robertson, a notable local poet and fiction writer, throws his readers into the soup with love, loss, and extinction (and a very sinister cameo); the thrills in this one are metaphysical as well as primordial, as you'll see when you dip in." --SeattleReviewofBooks.com
