Robert Weverka (November 17, 1926 – May 19, 2009) was an American novel writer, and scriptwriter in collaboration with S. L. Stebel (Perilous Voyage (film) 1976, The Small World: "The Gypsy Children of Granada" 1963).[1][2]

From the One Minute to Eternity dust jacket: Robert Weverka was born in Los Angeles, is a graduate of the University of Southern California, and lives in Idyllwild, from whence he commutes to the advertising agency in Beverly Hills of which he is president. He spent two years in Mexico and was awarded three days in jail there for stealing a train in the town of Colima and driving it to Guadalajara. He now leads a more ordinary life, inspired, no doubt, by his wife, Ethel, and their five children.

He wrote numerous novelizations from movie scripts as well as original stories based on the television show The Waltons. His novelizations include Spectre, I Love My Wife, The Sting and Hangar 18. He died in May 2009 at the age of 82.
