 In the early morning hours of March 28, 2011, Charles and Helene Fontaine experienced something that shattered their beliefs about the nature of reality.


One evening in 1981, Connie J Cannon was on I-75 with her young son, en route to their new home in Florida, when they suddenly found themselves on a military base, with a man in uniform holding a gun to her head as three Grays stood nearby.


In 1979, Diane Fine was on her way from upstate New York to Vermont to see an obstetrics specialist for her high risk pregnancy, and experienced two hours of missing time.  When she was finally examined at the clinic, she

was told wasn’t pregnant.


In 1970, pilot Bruce Gernon was chased by something through the Bermuda Triangle and he has been talking about it ever since - to UFO Hunters, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, the Sci-Fi channel, and all their foreign counterparts.


None of these individuals have ever met. But they share something significant. In 2003,  a Roper Organization survey revealed that 33 million Americans may be abductees. Aliens in the Backyard is their story.


 The book is available from  Crossroad Press today,  February 4, 2013, and an excerpt is available on our blog.


 What others are saying about the book:

Whitley Strieber, Communion and other NY Times bestsellers

Trish and Rob MacGregor have written a sobering, engaging, and important book about the mysterious subject of alien abduction. When I read it, I was reminded of how little we know about this incredible, complex and enigmatic subjects, and just how much light this insightful book sheds on it.


If we are ever going to understand this phenomenon, books such as this are essential. Read it and wonder: what have we missed about our world? Perhaps the most important thing that has ever happened.


Aliens in the Backyard is a treasure.


Jeff Lindsay, creator of Dexter:

" Thrilling enough to be fiction, but it isn't!"

Hilary Hemingway, Dreamland:


"What is the alien agenda? The answer can be found in Aliens In The Backyard. Tight, suspenseful and thought provoking - it kept me up all night."


Nancy Pickard, Scent of Rain and Lightning                                   

  When 33 million people say they've had an 'alien' experience, then something's going on, whether in their minds or their actual backyards. Trish and Rob MacGregor dig into this provocative mystery with investigative passion and very human compassion." -
