While Dr. Isaacson has written many academic articles that have been published, writing a novel has always been on his "bucket list".
"I was at a point in my life where I needed a creative outlet. I have been an avid reader for much of my life and enjoy hearing good stories with adventurous plots."
The idea for Dr. Isaacson's new novel "Rise of a Raven" came after he had read an article in the Star Tribune.
"It gave me a light bulb moment. I thought this could be a great plot line and from there I developed the story and characters. It was a fun process with a lot of challenges along the way, but I had a great writing coach from the University of Wisconsin-Madison guiding me."
The arrival of a mysterious cedar box summons national Bureau of Indian Affairs head Anne-Maree Harris to the villainous mastermind behind a rogue Native American terroristic plot against the U.S. President.
When the terrorists kidnap and torture Anne-Maree’s one true love, it makes her look in the mirror and consider changes to make in her heart and how she deals with people on all levels, especially powerful men.
