Robert (Bob) Earll is a complex man, someone whose name is being tossed around as people seek him out online. (Not to be confused with Dr. Bob Earll of UK.) This entry is about Robert Earll who wrote for tv series like Hill Street Blues, Nightstalker, Ironside from the 1960s through the 1990s. His film credits list him as a writer, producer, developer over a span of years in which he was involved with creating truly remarkable story lines for gripping tv series. His talent as a writer may well be connected to a life lived on the edge, as revealed in his autobiographical book “I Got Tired of Pretending” (1989; ISBN: 0922641692), STEM Publications (P.O. Box 8307, Tucson, Arizona 85738) and in another book “Turning on the Light: A plan for empowerment & fullness of life” (STEM, 1992; ISBN: 0922641641). Truly, all of life is grist for a writer.
As Bob Earll, an energetic and energizing speaker, he impacts lives of people who meet him, who hear his tapes, read his books and see their own lives more clearly as a result of the life he shares – without stinting and in excruciating detail – in person and in “I Got Tired of Pretending”. Life? Lives! His own life and the ongoing and challenging lives of his Inner Child and his Inner Adolescent and other entities in various states of unhinged abandon, all of whom he calls on in his presentations to thousands of fans. I know. I was one of them in the 1980s as he told my own story to me and to thousands sitting in amazement as he spoke. I’m still a fan of his, still catch occasionally his tv shows in re-run. I still have a box of his tapes. They rock my world.
