Robert Priest


I'm pretty pleased to have all 3 books of my Spell Crossed series  finished and published now.  They are available from Dundurn or online at outlets such as Amazon. I just got a 4 and a half star review in Canadian Materials Magazine! The third book, Missing Piece, has been named by the CCBC as one of the Best Books for Kids and Teens for spring 2017.

"Robert Priest, in writing his second fantasy book for young readers, has crafted a great adventure-fantasy tale in the tradition of the classics"

- Canadian Materials

 I'm currently finished the first draft of a new book for young adults about a prankster.

I've also written two plays: Sweet and Sour Angel Wings, which was produced at the University of Hawaii and The Coming (with Leon Rooke) produced at the Harbourfront Theatre Festival.
