R.S. Gompertz grew up in a Los Angeles suburb of Disneyland
He writes historical fiction served up in a thick broth of humor, gravitas and adventure.
"Life's Big Zoo" is a catcher in the rye bread coming of age story set in Los Angeles, 1968 in an eccentric family where the bright lights of the sixties meet the shadow of the Holocaust.
"No Roads Lead to Rome" takes place in A.D. 123, a time not unlike the present, and chronicles the decline and fall of damn near everything. The saga continues in "Aqueduct to Nowhere."
While working on "No Roads," he published "The Expat's Pajamas: Barcelona," a series of articles about travel and expat life.
A collection of his humorous articles can be found in "Quirk In Progress."
