Overview

I’m an award-winning novelist, author of both fiction (mysteries and adventure novels) and non-fiction books. I not only write about ghosts, but I’m a ghost writer. My specialties are New Age subjects and self-help books, as well as mysteries of the Unknown. But you don’t have to be a ghost-hunter or a remote viewer to engage my services.

Prior to turning freelance, I worked as a daily newspaper reporter, magazine writer and editor. I’ve been on the New York Times bestseller list (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) and won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for mystery writing (Prophecy Rock, winner; Hawk Moon, finalist). I’ve worked with George Lucas, Peter Benchley, and Billy Dee Williams...among many others in projects.

Rob was awesome to work with, he drastically improved the outline that I gave and added his insight and experience to make the outline stronger with all the required elements

Johnny Ravela, January 2021


Eric Hoheisel
Rob helped me see the weaknesses in what I had created so far. The project is much stronger for his input. I would recommend Rob MacGregor to writers who are confident that the basic premise of their novel is good, but are having trouble developing the plot/outline.

Eric Hoheisel, October 2020


Travis Marlette
Rob was very professional, and very diligent in both the information gathering as well as the work put into the actual proposal. He also went above any beyond with a guest spot on his podcast, which was a fantastic addition. All around it was a great experience to work with someone open, professional, and diligent in this endeavor, and I would recommend him to anyone.

Travis Marlette, September 2020
