Biography

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I now reside in Long Beach, N.Y. I worked in New York City as an Art Director for 3 different magazines one of which was UFO magazine. I've been writing short stories for the past 20 years and found Time Travel to be my favorite topic. After writing Time Travel Adventures of the 1800 Club: Book 1, I wrote books 2 through 18 and am presently working on book 19. In between I've penned a young adult time travel book, two aviation trivia books, a book about a family of vampires, a romantic western and another time travel book plus 'Sky Ship', a high-action thriller.

Smashwords book reviews by Robert P McAuley

  • Photoshop: Changing The Outcome Vol. 1 The Tsunami on March 02, 2011

    By far this is the easiest instructional book on Photoshop I’ve read. The author takes you by the hand and walks the reader through the various steps and I felt as though he were standing behind me guiding me as I worked on a project. As a professional artist I see the many possibilities that Photoshop offers me for my various projects. My point is that the reader need not be a photographer to use Photoshop but following the author’s instructions all can join the creative field the program offers.
  • Romantic Interludes on Nov. 19, 2012

    A fast cute read about a typical family who's members are leading a typical life . . .HOWEVER . . . as we all know what we see from the outside is completely different than what's going on behind their closed doors. This is the first book of (I hope) many, each coming in one months time. The author writes as one thinks and the simplistic style is relaxing to read. Can't wait for the next book.
