Meet Bob Olson

Bob Olson is a writer who aims to inspire readers to improve themselves, follow their passions, and make the world a better place to live. He’s the author of The Magic Mala (fiction, 2017) and Answers About The Afterlife (nonfiction, 2014).

A former private eye, Bob used his investigation skills to explore the topic of life after death. In Answers About the Afterlife, he wrote what he learned about the afterlife in his 15-year investigation following the death of his father. In his newest book, The Magic Mala, he uses a fictional story to illustrate what he learned about life in that same investigation.

When not writing, creating a new podcast episode, or working diligently on his websites, Bob Olson is often hiking, kayaking, or biking with his lovely wife, Melissa, who he began dating in 1979 when she was 12 and he was 15 years old. They both love spending time with friends and family, usually having conversation and laughs over a delicious meal or taking in a show related to music, art, theatre or comedy.

Bob Olson is currently writing the screenplay for his latest book, The Magic Mala, which is available in paperback, Kindle, Nook, iBook, Kobo ebook, and Audible Audiobook.

Bob would love to hear about YOUR Magic Mala moments. If you’d like to share with Bob the miracles that have occurred in your life since reading The Magic Mala, you are welcome to write to Bob on the Contact page. He’s not always able to reply to everyone, or his reply might be brief, but he certainly appreciates you sharing with him.
