As Trish J MacGregor she wrote the trilogy The Hungry Ghosts. As Trish MacGregor, she has written dozens nonfiction books that reflect her interests - synchronicity, precognition, astrology, the tarot, dreams, and yoga.

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, T. J. MacGregor is bilingual and feels a deep kinship with South America. She has a B.A. in Spanish, and a Master in Library and Information Science. Before she sold her first novel in 1984, her jobs were all over the map. She taught English to Cuban refugees, Spanish to hormonal teenagers, was a social worker, and a librarian and Spanish teacher in a correctional facility for youthful offenders. Her best job was leading travel writing trips with her husband, writer and novelist Rob MacGregor, to the Peruvian Amazon. She lives in South Florida with her husband, their teenage daughter, and a menagerie of pets.[1]

T.J. has written 42 novels, which include three different series – the Quin St. James/Mike McCleary and the Tango Key series, a trilogy, The Hungry Ghosts, as well as a number of stand-alone thrillers including Out of Sight, which won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Paperback Original of 2002.[1][2] Her most recent novel is U R Mine (2016).
