Guest Bio

Robert grew up in a small English village, the repository of 1000 years of history engraved on the tombstones of its Norman Church. Without mobile phones, TV, or the Internet, he made up stories.

Later in life, he found himself a clearance diver in the labyrinthine, murky waterways of the Mekong Delta, dismantling booby traps during the Vietnam War and receiving two bravery awards. He spent much time in Asia, and his storytelling is inspired by his life experiences living around the world and from random meetings with strangers.

Robert’s writing paints pictures of remarkable, headstrong women set against backstories of the significant issues of our times. His vivid storytelling combines sharp-witted dialogue and meticulous research to bring our human struggles to life. A citizen of the world, his love of exotic places, their people and their love stories bring readers an evocative sense of time and place.

Meet the Author at Clunes - Robert Barclay

With Robert Barclay



Cassie’s Song tells the story of three women’s journeys.

One confronts moving on with her life after her husband’s murder.

One is at the peak of her fame on the world concert stage.

One is a passionate fighter for the environment against murderous corporations destroying the world’s rainforests.

Cassie’s Song rambles along briar paths in Hampshire villages with Katy, rekindling her love of the English countryside unchanged since Jane Austen’s time, sashays with Clara across the glamorous fashion capitals of the world and treads the horrific, secret world of greed in the prehistoric rainforests of Kalimantan with Cassie.

Two families face the devastating price the world pays for beauty and lays bare the grim world of human rights abuses and rainforest bastardry.

The climax will leave two mothers uplifted by their magnificent daughters and facing loss that must be endured like the rivers tell time, not the clocks.

There are monsters as well as angels in this life.

“As a series, it is wonderfully compelling yet as each book is so beautiful and amazing on its own, the enjoyment of these books is just so absorbing… Brilliant read…” Donna, Readalot reviewer
