Books By Author Bill Roorbach

Into Woods by Bill Roorbach Into Woods, Paperback (September 2015)

Into Woods is an exuberant, profound, and often wonderfully funny account of ten years in the life of author Bill Roorbach. A paean to nature, love, family, and place, it begins with his honeymoon on a wine farm in France's Loire Valley and closes with the birth of his daughter and he and his wife's return to their beloved Maine.

Temple Stream by Bill Roorbach Temple Stream, Paperback (December 2014)

Populated by an oddball cast of characters, this book chronicles one man's determined effort-occasionally with hilarious results-to follow the stream that runs by his house to its elusive source.

Big Bend by Bill Roorbach Big Bend, Paperback (January 2014)

Through quirky plots, one-of-kind characters, and more than a few twists, the stories in Big Bend examine gentle-hearted men and their relationships. From made-in-heaven meetings to troublesome liaisons, Roorbach's characters experience romance in unexpected, sometimes disastrous ways.

Smallest Color by Bill Roorbach Smallest Color, Paperback (November 2002)

Coop Henry's secret needs attention. His missing brother haunts his life and he isn't holding up well under the strain. When his mother threatens to hire a detective in one last desperate attempt to discover what happened to his brother 30 years before, Coop's life begins to come unglued.
