Robert Beatty has establishing himself as a #1 New York Times best selling author and even has his books optioned for movies–the Sarafina series. His newest book is: Willa of Dark Hollow. Very thought provoking about the interconnection between all life! His daughters and his home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina are the source of his inspiration. Great books for middle schoolers are so critical for their education and development and they’re also good reading for all ages.
