Robert Masello

Robert Masello is an award-winning journalist, television writer, and the bestselling author of many books, including "The Night Crossing," "The Jekyll Revelation," and "The Einstein Prophecy," a number one bestseller in the Amazon Kindle store for several weeks running. In addition to "The Haunting of H.G. Wells," his other historical / supernatural thrillers include "The Romanov Cross," "The Medusa Amulet," and "Blood and Ice," all published by Bantam/Random House, and available in hardcover, mass market, and audio editions. Published in seventeen languages to date, his work has been acclaimed by literary critics from such prominent publications as the Chicago Tribune and the San Francisco Chronicle to Publishers Weekly and Parade Magazine. Of his epic adventure, "Blood and Ice," the reviewer in USA Today proclaimed, "It's what would happen if H.G. Wells, Stephenie Meyer and Michael Crichton co-wrote a suspense novel!" The Guardian (U.K) called it "a big meaty supernatural thriller," and The Times of London declared, "Masello has written a winner, made for Hollywood." His articles, essays and reviews have appeared often in such publications as New York Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Town and Country, Travel and Leisure, The Washington Post, Elle, People, Harper's Bazaar, The Wilson Quarterly, etc. His nonfiction book, "Robert's Rules of Writing" (a Los Angeles Times bestseller) has been adopted in many high school and college classrooms, and his guide to the television industry -- "A Friend in the Business: Honest Advice for Anyone Trying to Break Into Television Writing" -- continues to explain the intricacies of the TV field to newcomers. "Writer Tells All: Insider Secrets to Getting Your Book Published" (Owl/Holt) performs the same function for aspiring authors everywhere. Born and raised in Evanston, Illinois, Masello studied writing at Princeton University under the noted authors Geoffrey Wolff and the late National Book Award winner, Robert Stone. After graduation, Masello moved to New York City, where he worked on staff at Esquire and GQ before embarking on his solo writing career. In 1991, he relocated to California where he wrote for such popular shows as "Charmed," "Sliders," "Poltergeist," and "Early Edition." For six years, he also served as the Visiting Lecturer in Literature at Claremont McKenna College. A longstanding member of the Writers Guild of America West, he now lives and works in Santa Monica, California.
