Hi there! We’re the authors of more than 70 novels and non-fiction books. Four months after we were married in 1983, we quit our jobs – Rob was a reporter, Trish was teaching Spanish to hormonal seventh graders – to write full time.
We were doing magazine writing, not exactly a regular income! At any rate, we ran out of money four months later and both of us took part time jobs. Rob went to work for a weekly newspaper and Trish started teaching English as a second language in an adult ed program. In September 1984, Trish sold her first her first novel, In Shadow, to Ballantine Books, and Rob landed a ghostwriting project for a CEO of a Washington, D.C. based company. That was it. We quit out jobs again and have been full-time writers ever since.
We have been extraordinarily fortunate. By following the synchronicities in in our lives, Rob wrote seven Indiana Jones novels for Lucas Films, including the novelization of The Last Crusade. We have both won the coveted Edgar Allan Poe award given out each year by Mystery Writers’ of America. Rob won for his YA novel, Prophecy Rock, which has an excerpt on the blog, and Trish won for Out of Sight, which will soon be included in the excerpts.
Our interests have taken us all over the map. We’ve written books about dreams, astrology, the tarot, the Bermuda Triangle, UFOs, yoga, and synchronicity, which is how this blog began.
We’re gradually bringing our back list titles (out of print books) into digital format. You’ll find excerpts of our novels- back lists and current – and more than 1200 posts on the fascinating topic of synchronicity as well as posts on ghosts, UFOs, and just about anything else that falls under things that go bump in the night.
We would love to hear about your synchronicities. If you have any you would like to share, leave us a comment or write us through our other websites:
