Author Biography

Guy Rosmarin is a writer with a very distinctive style. The first installment of his novel, Yesterday's Tomorrow, was released this past fall and is already generating much interest for its unique fusion of historical fiction with realism, mystery, suspense and fantasy. Guy is a lover of music - from Bach to Pearl Jam and much in between, a world traveler who backpacked South America, launched a spiritual journey in the Himalayas, learned to scuba in Honduras, found the perfect beach in Thailand, and surfed the perfect wave in Costa Rica. In constant search of his inner voice, Guy often struggles to find the right words, but on good days they end up finding him.
When Guy is not writing, he works as a post audio engineer, recording and mixing short films and commercials for television, radio, and the web.
Guy lives down the Jersey shore with his wife, two kids, their cat, and their dog.
If you're down there on a pre-dawn hour beach stroll, you may run into Guy surfing.

Yesterday's Tomorrow: Just A Dream, Part 1 is an historical time travel novel written by Guy Rosmarin. Harvard professor Dr. Anderson Spencer had a theory about World War II and was researching the possibility of an internal coup that was behind Hitler’s disastrous incursion into Russia. He had spent the last seven years researching it, and the publisher who had hoped for a best-selling follow-up to his first history book was getting impatient. The FBI was also interested in one of the contacts Spencer was using for his investigation, a German named Karl Heime. Some of his friends were concerned about his future and offered ideas for alternative career opportunities befitting the expertise of a man whose knowledge of the Nazi party and the Third Reich was unparalleled. Spencer was determined to get to the resolution of his theory, one way or the other. But something strange started happening to him. His world would suddenly turn dark without warning, leaving him conscious but insensible of where he was or what he was doing. It would come and go, often at the worst possible moment, such as when he was standing before his lecture class as they waited for him to finish so they could go on spring break.

Yesterday's Tomorrow is a riveting and thought-provoking entree into the realm of historical books written about World War II and the rise of the Third Reich. I’ve long been a student of that conflict and was intrigued by the premise offered by Rosmarin’s story line. Dr. Spencer’s time travels into Czechoslovakia are darkly real and stark, and scenes from his real life and those past life episodes merge eerily and seamlessly at times, making this a most compelling read. Rosmarin’s characters are authentic and real. Those moments Spencer shares celebrating with his friend Nate’s family at their Passover Seder are unforgettable in their warmth and sense of tradition and history. Likewise, his dream episodes, set in war-time Czechoslovakia, have an immediacy that is intense and powerful. This well-written and enthralling story kept me on edge and eager to read on, and I’m quite pleased that it’s only the first book in the author’s series. Yesterday's Tomorrow: Just A Dream, Part 1 is most highly recommended.
