About this author

Robert Egby started his early life in England as an avowed atheist yet while suffering a disease which a doctor termed fatal, a spirit appeared and told him he would not die.
His great-grandmother, a Seer, predicted his life, but he refused to believe her—until it started happening. Doors opened as if by magic. Work in a unique film studio in England, living in a desert tent in Egypt, an act in a local variety show got him into professional broadcasting, journalism and news photography. He became an international correspondent meeting kings and killers. One gunman saved his life—twice. He was arrested in Baghdad for photographing kings eating and in Cyprus he scooped a major Press award for a newspicture.

Hemingway would have said "Let's have a cerveza." When one of those rare blocks occurs I look over my synopsis and pick a flashback or a chapter that supports the current plot. Case in point: PENTADAKTYLOS. Greg a British officer is wounded and loses his manhood. It's 17 years before, the evacuation of Greece, WWII. Unbeknown to him he does have a son. It's a story within a novel. When I was finished, I found my block had gone. (less)

But that is unfair because I do love both worlds. Every morning I walk for 30 minutes at the YMCA track, meditating. My mind is with my characters working out the next chapter. Even the bad ones are fun to be with. In PENTADAKTYLOS I had the long-range Greek Assassin act as a father to a 17 year old kid who wanted to become a freedom fighter. In FOR THE LOVE OF ROSE the well know historical villain actually saves my hero's life which is far from the end of the story. Forget who you are and "live" even for 20 minutes a day with your cast and they'll help you -- the writer -- to create a good yarn. That's the best thing of being a writer. (less)

So I browsed many of the Book Readings and Signings videos on Youtube.com and muttered to myself: I can do better than that. Somehow a promotional video, even an eight minute job, has to be entertaining, something more than just a figure reading a book in the local library or bookshop.Alternative: Create a book reading video outdoors where a major part of the novel is located: An...

John A. Keel
“Journalist and author of "The Mothman Prophecies" (made into a film starring Richard Gere) John A. Keel was adamant when he stated: ". . ..The UFOs do not seem to exist as tangible manufactured objects. They do not conform to the accepted natural laws of our environment. . .The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon."(Conspiracy Journel)”
