My New novel, The Future of Another timeline, comes out in September 2019.
come see me on book tour, from Sept. 24-Oct. 11. Details here.
It’s a story of time travel, murder, and unlikely allies separated by centuries, battling for a world in which anyone can change the future.
1992: Beth, a teenage riot grrl, witnesses a murder and realizes something is deeply wrong with her life--maybe it's her best friend, maybe it's her dad, or maybe it's the strange woman who keeps trying to warn her about what's coming.
2022: Tess, a time-traveling geologist, journeys to different eras for her research, while secretly hoping to correct a mistake from her past that haunts her still.
Their lives become mysteriously intertwined as war breaks out across the timeline--a war that threatens to destroy time travel, leaving only a small group of elites with the power to shape the past, present, and future.
Publishers Weekly gave it a starred review, and said, "An intelligent, gut-wrenching glimpse of how tiny actions, both courageous and venal, can have large consequences. Smart and profound on every level.”
