About JK Mikals

JK Mikals first published at the age of 14, when her brother purloined a school assignment, sent it to the Readers Digest, and kept the resulting check. When Mikals learned of this some 30 years later, she told him he might as well keep the check. Currently exploring her mind and the tropics with her 15 centimeter Aztec companion, Xochitl, Mikals is known primarily for vocabulary, an enlightened point of view and an unusual sense of humor.

Full of frenetic energy and unapologetic silliness, A Chip in Time merges romantic comedy with mythology with time travel and serves it all up in a tall frosted glass with an umbrella. Much like those mixed drinks one finds at resort bars, you're never really sure exactly what you're drinking in, but it's quite enjoyable. Just don't be surprised if you feel a tad giddy afterward.

Some adult content, including a racy description of how good brownies with ice cream really are.

J.K. Mikals has produced an engaging, genre-defying tale that gently mocks literary cliches and whole-heartedly celebrates snack foods. In Mikals' reality, the heroine's search for true love and the Goddess of Time's addiction to ambrosia intersect, with surprising results for the history of the world. Mikals' approach to social satire is playful and amusing, and I found her brand names particularly funny.
"A Chip in Time" explores the profundities and absurdities of love, time, technology, and culture, but Mikals never pontificates, and she never loses the plot. Mikals can be forgiven for the odd obscure reference, and those of you who are really up on your heresies and fertility cults can relish the opportunity to enjoy an in-joke or two with the author while the rest of us google it.
