About the Author

ROY MACGREGOR was named a media inductee to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012, when he was given the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for excellence in hockey journalism. He has been involved in hockey all his life, from playing all-star hockey in Huntsville, Ontario, against the likes of Bobby Orr from nearby Parry Sound, to coaching, and he is still playing old-timers hockey in Ottawa, where he lives with his wife Ellen. They have four grown children. He was inspired to write The Highest Number in the World, illustrated by Genevieve Despres, when his now grown-up daughter started playing hockey as a young girl. Roy is also the author of several classics in hockey literature. Home Team: Fathers, Sons and Hockey was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award for Literature. Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada (written with Ken Dryden) was a bestseller, as were Road Games: A Year in the Life of the NHL, The Seven A.M. Practice, and his latest, Wayne Gretzky's Ghost: And Other Tales from a Lifetime in Hockey. He wrote Mystery at Lake Placid, the first book in the bestselling, internationally successful Screech Owls series in 1995. In 2005, Roy was named an Officer of the Order of Canada.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR Face-Off at the Alamo:
"Impressively well written, this fast paced story should hold the interest of all young hockey players and fans. Historical refrences to the Alamo in San Antonio add interest and information for students." -- Resource Links
"...MacGregor's ... books for tween to teen readers combines the best of old school mystery series with solid writing about hockey. Youngsters with an interest in the game will appreciate the exciting play-by-play descriptions...." -- The Hockey Writers

PRAISE FOR Panic in Pittsburgh:
"MacGregor seamlessly slips between the mystery plotline and game-related minutiae, describing plays, goals, passes, saves, and coaching philosophies, which should appeal to hockey nerds who also love a good caper.... There is also a nod to gender equality, with four girls on the team." -- Featured Review from Quill & Quire
