Jack Heath and John Thompson - Salem VI-Rebecca's Rising
Mary: Who inspires you?
Jack: Very driven people inspire me, not sure any one person. My family and faith inspire me in terms of driving me to achieve bigger goals to do good with in life. It’s funny in a way, while my book Salem VI- Rebecca’s Rising is all about suspense, a Satanic Coven and good vs. evil bloodlines dating back to 1692 and the Salem witch trials, I am really a pretty religious Catholic- converted Catholic, by the way. But after my years working in the media and covering a lot of terrible, twisted murders, I definitely do believe there is real evil at work in the world. I’ve seen it, covered it.

Former primetime television reporter John Andrews thought he’d lost everything when his wife died but as timeless bloodlines, first crafted during the Salem witch trials, are redrawn he realizes he has more at stake. Salem, Mass isn’t what it used to be—or is it?
Having stepped off the fast track of primetime network television news, John Andrews has chosen a quieter life as editor of Salem News, a small paper in a quiet New England town. Life is perfect until Andrews’ wife is killed in a tragic accident. After several years of trying to numb the pain with alcohol, Andrews is visited by the spirit of a long dead ancestor who opens a door to a shocking family history. After he experiences a surreal glimpse into the past, Andrews must confront the question of whether he is losing his mind or whether for several hundred years his ancestors have been engaged in a secret battle with a coven that worships Satan. Fueled by the need to understand whether his wife's death was really an accident or something far more sinister, Andrews, along with his beautiful assistant editor, risk everything to discover a truth so horrifying it threatens to destroy everything and everyone he knows and loves.
