Although Tropic of Night was his
first book in his own name, Gruber was
Robert Tanenbaum's ghost-writer for many
years (they are cousins). However, his credit was limited to a thank you
on the acknowledgements page so eventually the relationship
dissolved - Resolve (2003) was the last Tanebaum book
In 1996 he started to write The Witch's Boy but was unable to find a publisher, so he turned to adult fiction, publishing Tropic of Night and Valley of Bones, which were both well received. In 2005, almost 10 years after he first wrote it, The Witch's Boy was published in hardcover, and now in paperback.
