SEVEN REALMS PUBLISHING SIGNS NYT BESTSELLING AUTHOR ROB MACGREGOR AND HIS NEWEST YOUNG ADULT ADVENTURE MYSTERY
It is with great pleasure that we welcome NY Times best selling author Rob MacGregor to the growing list of Seven Realms authors. Rob’s book, DOUBLE HEART, will be a young adult mystery novel set on a Hopi Indian reservation. Here’s a brief summary of the book:
When Will Lansa decided to write about Hopi witches for a term paper, he never suspected that one of them would come after him. That’s the essence of Double Heart, a term used to describe witches on the reservation, but also an apt description of Will Lansa’s own life, split between two cultures.
Will figured that spending his senior year at Hopi High would be like living in a monastery, a cleansing, and really boring. The kids were so different, many rarely left the rez, except for Tuba City, Flagstaff, or Winslow. But Will Lansa grew up in Aspen with his white, wealthy mother. Now he’s stuck on the rez with his dad, the Hopi chief of police, and soon finds himself tangled up with witchcraft and a murder investigation.
Here’s a brief bio of Rob and his impressive list of credits (including several Indiana Jones novels!):
ROB MACGREGOR is an Edgar award-winning author, whose novel, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. He is the author of seventeen novels, ten non-fiction books, and has teamed with George Lucas, Peter Benchley, and Billy Dee Williams. He writes both adult and young adult mysteries, adventure, and science fiction/ fantasy. He and his wife, Trish, also write the Sydney Omarr’s Astrological Guides. They also co-authored The Seven Secrets of Synchronicity in 2010 and their sequel, Synchronicity and the Other Side, will be published this spring.
Double Heart is the third in a series of award-winning novels set on the Hopi Reservation and Aspen, Colorado. The novels were inspired by Rob’s experiences residing on an Indian reservation–Little Earth of the United Tribes–where he was editor of a community newspaper for four years. Rob later worked as a freelance travel writer and, with Trish, organized adventure tours to South America –including trips along the Amazon and into the Andes. In his spare time, he teaches yoga, and is an avid off-road mountain biker and windsurfer.
