Mark Bello has written a really attention-grabbing and fun book in The Final Steps. It is loaded with interesting characters and the perfect mystery climax… the kind that keeps you guessing until the very end. There is no lack of suspects in the story, which makes it even better.


“A great blend of history, banking, and fiction and is creatively told through the narrator, Lucy, a ghost who was employed at the Fed and died there more than one hundred years earlier.  By the time I was done, I was completely involved in Lucy’s life and wanted to see her get where she wanted to be.”


The author offers doable suggestions and relates to the reader through his personal experiences to describe how to achieve success in all areas of their lives. Perfect for anyone struggling to find their voice amid the chaos of this modern world.


This book screams effervescence and positivity. Beyond the inspirational message, the pages are adorned with endearing sketches of hearts, outstretched arms, and magic wands, which quickly put my mind at ease. It’s incredible how the cheery visuals elevated my reading experience.

In addition to a career as a newspaper editor, publisher, and manager, Robb Grindstaff has written fiction most of his life. The newspaper biz has taken him and his family from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin, from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, he’s as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas.

His novels are probably best classified as contemporary southern lit, and he’s had more than twenty short stories published in a wide array of genres. His articles on the craft of fiction writing have appeared in various writer magazines and websites, and one of his seminars was presented at the Sydney (Australia) Writers Festival. He also has taught writing courses for the Romance Writers of America, Romance Writers of Australia, and the Novel-in-Progress writers retreat.

Robb retired from the newspaper business in the summer of 2020 to write and edit fiction full time. He and his wife relocated to the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.

Robb also edits fiction and non-fiction books for authors from around the world. It helps that he’s fluent in five languages: US English, UK English, Canadian English, and Australian English, plus his native language, Texan.
