Dear Reader, Love Rob Kaufman

Dear Reader…

My hope is that you like psychological thrillers that keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. If you do, this letter will mean a lot to you. If you don’t, I’m going to try to convince you otherwise. J

A Broken Reality came from my overactive imagination while searching for my friend’s lost cat, Eddie. As I drove frantically down the snow-covered road, it suddenly hit me that I’d better slow down – what if Eddie ran from a hidden driveway into the middle of the road and I couldn’t stop in time?

That’s when my author’s mind took over. What if I wasn’t searching for a cat, but was actually searching for a missing boy? What if  the boy suddenly appeared out of the surrounding forest and I hit him with my car? What if my mind couldn’t handle what I’d done and dissociative amnesia set in? What if the kidnapper, who had been chasing the boy through the woods, witnessed the accident and was going to make me pay for what I’d done? What if….

I’ll stop here so I won’t give away the entire book. However, it does give you an idea of the plot, a few of the characters and the potential for a rollercoaster of emotions.

A Broken Reality is my third book and, so far, the most difficult to write. My second book, One Last Lie, is very successful and typically receives four and five stars by most who read it. However, in a way it was easier to write because the plot details weren’t as “precision-oriented” as those in A Broken Reality.

What does that mean? Well, it’s really about the “timing” of the events that take place. In A Broken Reality, the timeline had to be precise, down to the minute, in order for the plot to make sense and the believability of the story to take hold. Again… I can’t go into detail without giving away the story, but know that when (or if) you decide to read it, a lot of blood, sweat, tears (and a few glasses of wine) were required to make it just right for you.

I know you’re busy, so I won’t drone on about my background, my other books, my blogs, etc. (Of course, if you are interested in any of that, please feel free to visit It’s open 24/7!)

I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read this note and for considering A Broken Reality. If you do read it, I’d love to know what you think. Hearing your comments (both positive and negative) can only help make me a better writer and honestly, my goal has always been to be the best writer I can be.

All My Best,


About the Author

As a child, Rob Kaufman was always fascinated by the stories recited by those around him and the words used to tell them. As he got older, his need to tell his own stories grew, as did his ability to share them in exciting and captivating ways.

However, he wanted to share more than just stories. His primary desire was to create characters with whom people could relate, while at the same time bringing them through a journey from which most would crumble.

His degree in Psychology was the first step toward getting beneath the surface of the people in his life. What followed was a lifelong search for what makes people tick – what forces them to become evil when deep down in their heart of hearts, they are yearning for love. Rob’s characters walk this search with him, deep into the human psyche, creating psychological thrillers from every day events.

Rob’s second book “One Last Lie" continues to receive great praise and is selling well in both electronic and paperback formats. His current book, “A Broken Reality” is much darker than his first, with characters who hold bits and pieces of strangers he’s known, friends he’s had and personal tragedy he’s lived through.

“This book hits home for me,” says Rob. “There were a few pages that made me laugh out loud as I wrote them... and many that made me cry. And the great thing is, I’m finding that many readers of this book are experiencing the same emotions.”

Through social and other media, Rob hopes to get “A Broken Reality” into the hands of millions, so that they, too, can experience the ups, downs, twists, turns and final tragedy that has helped make this book a Five-Star contender.

About the Book:

On a fateful night in the dead of winter, an unimaginable tragedy changes the lives of two families forever. How will they manage to deal with reality while stopping the sociopath who is pushing them toward the edge of sanity?

When Jesse regains consciousness, he has no recollection of how he and his car wound up in a ditch. However, there's a witness: Charles Hastings, the sociopathic kidnapper who chased Danny through the brush and into the path of Jesse's car.

Hastings takes this chance to set up Jesse so he'll take the fall for both Danny's disappearance and death. And so the mind games begin--an onslaught of psychological manipulation that devastates Jesse, his wife, Danny's parents and the cops' investigation. Inexplicably, the torment continues even after the primary suspect is killed and the rollercoaster of emotions and confusion seems never-ending until the final and devastating truth is revealed.

If you like gripping, suspenseful page-turners that keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, this is a must read!
Ten-year-old, Danny Madsen, has been missing for four days when Jesse Carlton begins his own search for his godson on a frigid, snowy night. Driving along a deserted rural road, Jesse hits a stretch of black ice at the same time Danny appears from the thicket. Unable to control the car, Jesse slams into the boy and watches helplessly as Danny's body flies back into the dark brush.
