About Robert Egby

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.
Strange Cosmic energies called kinks stopped him from being in a major British train crash and sailing on a troopship that sank. A spirit voice warned him of an air attack and again saved him from walking through a Lebanese minefield. The voice warned him as bullets smashed through his hotel room.
In all this, he suffered from a negative ego but this was about to change. The Seer had predicted he would go west though he vowed he never would. Arriving in Canada, his work in broadcasting brought four awards for documentaries. Then he found himself living a double life, one professional, the other spiritual. With the help of Spirit Guides and a Guardian Angel he embraced a life of metaphysics, healing and higher learning, and in doing so dissolved the negative ego, the cause of all suffering. As predicted so many years before by the Seer, he set himself free and started to “work with the light” and help people understand Cosmic Forces. This book is the story of his personal quest. His life story is amply illustrated with photos, most of which are his own.
Today, in the United States he teaches a release from suffering and how to attain Cosmic consciousness. The author believes kinks in the Cosmos happen in everyone’s life but we fail to recognize these as opportunities and go with the flow. He became an international journalist and news photographer without any formal college or university training.
Over the years he wrote several novels and short stories that were never published--until now. His first historical novel is "Pentadaktylos: Love, Promises and Patriotism in the Last Days of Colonial Cyprus" is in print and ebook. Another historical novel, "The Guardians of Stafka: The Hunt for Romanov Gold in Canada" was published in December 2011 and is now available on Smashwords.

Review by: Alan Tucker on March 07, 2012 : (no rating)
This is the second historical fictional novel by Robert Egby and is a gem of a book. The author takes the reader through Chile,Sydney,Prague,San Francisco,the Koala Peninsular in N.Russia,Gori in Georgia and the West Coast of Canada-an area he clearly knows well.
The characters are skillfully drawn and the high pace is maintained as the search for the Romanov gold is persued. There is a love interest dealt sensetively. The pace nearing the end is edge of the seat stuff leading to a startling revelation to conclude this engrossing book.
I would recommend this book to all devotees of mystery adventure.
