Priorhouse interview – Roberta Eaton Cheadle

Yvette from Priorhouse blog was kind enough to invite me over for a guest interview. Yvette created the most beautiful post and she also asked some excellent questions. Thank you, Yvette.

If you don’t know Yvette, she blogs about art, museums, books, and also posts intriguing interviews with authors and bloggers. She also participates in a number of photograph challenges with her excellent photographs.

Today’s Interview features Roberta (Robbie) Eaton Cheadle, who is a South African author. She has worked in finance since 2001 and she also writes fiction and poetry.  In addition to having short stories and poems in numerous anthologies, Robbie has published ten children’s books and two novels:
Through the Nethergate, a historical supernatural fantasy

A Ghost and His Gold, a historical paranormal novel set in South Africa.

Now most readers of the Priorhouse blog know that I don’t read horror stories and I stay away from paranormal material – (just my preference for personal and spiritual reasons)-  but Robbie and I still connect through a variety of topics! And I am glad to have been blog friends with her for many years now!


Robbie blogs about books, shares her poetry, features authors, and provides book reviews. She recently provided an excellent review, here, about The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.  She also posts about food! I enjoy her recipe posts because they are hearty and often include real meat! She often includes a little backstory to why she made the dish or how she modified the recipe.

That leads to our first question in this interview – it relates to food and what you would bring to a potluck.

Priorhouse: I am reading a literary trivia book from Mental Floss (2021), which had a section on what famous authors liked to eat and what they “might” bring to a literary potluck.

  • Sylvia Plath: Tomato Soup Cake
  • John Steinbeck: Posole (can of chili and can of hominy)
  • F. Scott Fitzgerald: Turkey Leftovers
  • Harper Lee: Crackling Bread (made with pig skin)
  • Pearl S. Buck: Sweet and Sour Fish

  1. HI Priscilla, I’m glad you enjoyed this interview. I find all writing a challenge and that’s what makes it rewarding for me. I am enjoying writing about the different animals I’ve come across during my travels and considering what their survival challenges are.
