In 2007, he wrote "Postcards from Palm Springs", a memoir chronicling his extraordinary experiences during his first year in the desert. The book landed him on the cover of The LA Times and in 2012 Robert was cast in a Canadian reality TV series inspired by his book. The show, "Golden Gays", was the first TV series focusing on the lives of LGBT people over the age of 55, shown in Canada and Europe. Robert currently ran for a seat on the Palm Springs City Council.
