In a million years, Anthony Kyle Robinson never thought he would call himself an author. His journey to become a published started almost a decade ago when he’d lost his partner of 11 years and started writing as a way to deal with the loss.
The Atlanta resident is the author of the trilogy books in the “Four Better or Worse Book series,” which includes When I say I Do (2021), Being Married To Her (2019), and He Was My Husband Too (2014).
He Was My Husband Too follows the love story of Tyler, a handsome, well-educated entrepreneur, and Will. Following the unexpected death of Will, Tyler begins his journey toward closure, denial, and rejection from those who once embraced the union between himself and Will. He told PrideIndex that after self-publishing his first book, readers urged him to continue the series.
