You know, I'm in love with the past and have always wished there was a way to visit. What a killer vacation destination, huh? It could be the newest vaca craze. So I thought, if I can't actually DO it, at least I can write about it.
When sheltered Hope Walton discovers the mother she believed dead is alive, though marooned in the twelfth century by a vindictive time-traveler, the sixteen-year-old joins a team of time-jumping Indiana Joneses to stage a rescue.
But Hope and her crew aren’t the only intruders into the past. Bran, son of her family’s worst enemy, is searching for a priceless relic that is her mom’s only hope of escape. Though Hope detests Bran for betraying her family and team, something about him dredges up memories of an impossible, shared childhood. In a brutal time, poised on the brink of the 1153 coronation of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, the brilliant teen must choose between her mission and her heart—both of which could leave Hope trapped in the past forever.
I work with the Historical Novel Society’s website, and conduct author interviews for them. In addition, I have four years’ experience writing web content for a major television network-affiliate fansite (CBS) for the television series, Big Brother. I am also a member of several writing organizations, including the SCBWI and the Historical Novel Society.
THE DIM is complete at 96,000 words and I hope will appeal to fans of both historical and dark, edgy fiction. It’s the first in a planned series, in which Hope and her friends travel to different eras in time.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
