Long ago, but not so far away, Rob MacGregor was a reporter for a daily newspaper in South Florida when one day he was assigned to write an update on the saga of the 100,000 Cuban refugees who had flooded South Florida two years earlier. What happened to them? What were they doing? Were they learning English? One of the persons he interviewed was a Venezuelan-born woman named Trish Janeshutz, who was teaching English as a second language to Cuban refugees at Florida International University.
Trish went home that evening and told her roommate, “I met the man today that I’m going to marry.” At the time, she had recently completed his sixth unpublished novel. She had an agent who was confident in her skills as a novelist and certain that she would soon find a publisher. Rob had agreed to talk to her students about his travels in Latin America, and when they met again she asked if he would read her novel.
That was the beginning of a relationship—personal and professional—that has continued for more than three decades. And that novel... Rob read it and suggested some revisions. Trish re-wrote it, and it became her first novel, In Shadow, published in 1985 by Ballantine Books. By that time, we had quit our jobs, gotten married, (yes, Trish’s premonition was right!) were working as full-time writers…and on our way.
We’ve published more than 100 books, both fiction and non-fiction. Trish’s novel, Out of Sight, won the prestigious Edgar Allan Poe award for mystery writing, and Rob’s novel, Prophecy Rock, won the same award and the sequel, Hawk Moon, was a finalist for the Mystery Writers of America sponsored award. Rob is also the author of seven Indiana Jones novels including The Last Crusade. Trish has published 38 novels and Rob is lagging behind her with 21!
Many of our non-fiction books are New Age self-help oriented tomes on subjects such as synchronicity, meditation, dreams, astrology, the tarot, divination and animal symbolism. We’ve also written books on mysteries of the unknown, such as alien encounters, the Bermuda Triangle, ghosts and spirits.

This site focuses on our non-fiction books. You can find out more about our novels at the following websites:
Synchronicity is the coming together of inner and outer events in a way that is meaningful to the observer and which cannot be explained by cause and effect. Or: meaningful coincidence. The term was coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, who first wrote about it in 1949, in his introduction to Richard Wilhelm's edition of the I Ching. It's a fascinating phenomenon that can provide guidance, confirmation, warning, and infuses life with a sense of wonder and mystery.
