Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Love


Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Love is the only sequel ever published to Charles Dickens’s beloved Christmas classic and follows Ebenezer Scrooge’s quest to rediscover true love after his harrowing Christmas Eve “Night of the Ghosts.” But even true love is not without its pitfalls.

Robert (Rob) Marro Jr. is originally a native of Brooklyn, New York. Before his twenty-five-plus year Wall Street executive role fighting international financial crime, Rob began with a brief stint as a junior White House aide during the Carter/Reagan administrations. This transitioned into a career as a covert operations officer in the CIA. He has also consulted for Special Operations Command’s Counter Threat Working Group. Rob graduated from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, with a BA in Soviet/Russian Studies and is also active in the motion picture industry. Along with major Hollywood studio projects currently in development, he was an Executive Producer and featured in the 2016 Netflix motion picture “Hostage to the Devil,” about the acclaimed author and controversial Vatican exorcist, the late Father Malachi Martin. Rob has been happily married to his lovely artist wife, Wendy, for eighteen years; he enjoys nature photography with his trusty Nikon, amateur astronomy, writing, and military history.  Two of the couple’s rescue cats, Gusty and Boo-Bear, are the inspiration for Ebenezer Scrooge’s rescued kittens, Julius and Caesar.

“Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Love” is his debut novel and a sequel is already in the works, tentatively titled “Livinia.”
