Rick Hobbs lives in Maine. He is a family physician and medical acupuncturist who practices and teaches a holistic style of medicine. For him, the mind-body-spirit connection is more than a cliché. It is real and plays a major role in both healing and wellness. Rick also has a penchant for hard science and spent his younger days studying physics at Georgia Tech. As a graduate student, he learned that physics can only take you so far. There are things that are seemingly unknowable. Yet throughout the history of science there have been rare individuals capable of reaching beyond physics, to fathom the depths of reality. One might call it “seeing through the eyes of the spirit.” In his first novel, Entangled Realms, Rick began a journey into that zone where science intersects with the realm of the spirit—a realm where good and evil battle over the power of knowledge. The Realm of Misplaced Hearts continues that sojourn, uniting a new cast of characters with the old.
