Bob Gussin

FouNding Partner

Bob never let his Ph.D. and position as the Chief Scientific Officer of Johnson and Johnson stand in the way of his passion for fiction—specifically mysteries and thrillers and suspense. So as soon as he retired, he and his wife, Patricia Gussin, started Oceanview Publishing, where since 2006 they have been publishing exceptional authors in that genre. In 2018, the International Thriller Writers recognized Bob and Pat with the Thriller Legend Award.

Pat Gussin

Founding Partner

Pat is a physician and medical researcher—turned fiction writer and editor and publisher.  She’s a USA Today and New York Times best-selling author and with her husband, Bob, a recipient of the International Thriller Writers Thriller Legend Award. Her greatest pride is the discovery of a fantastic thriller/mystery/suspense writer.
