"A GRAND yarn you can't put down." Janet Chapple, author of Yellowstone Treasures, on Repeating History.
"The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds."
Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly, on True Gold.
I am fascinated by the possibilities of what if. The memories of place that some people call ghosts, the möbius effect of time travel. You won't find vampires or werewolves in my books, I'm afraid. Or horror. I am more interested in the potential effects of the fantastic on normal folks, and in inserting it into well-researched historical events, populated mostly by people who really lived.
I'm also an avid student of the road, and Cross-Country will not be my last travel adventure book.

Fun historical fiction set in an era about which I knew little. The time travel portion added an extra element to the portion of the story set in the past. I enjoyed watching the hero cope with the culture shock.
Read this one out of sequence, as I read "True Gold", the sequel first. However, the two books are only very loosely linked, and the sequence really didn't make much difference, in my opinion. Will read the final book in the trilogy when available.

An enjoyable journey through an unfamiliar landscape - made all the more interesting by the author's obvious love for her setting. An interesting premise in a story brought alive by well-constructed and lively prose, vivid description and believable engaging characters. Eagerly anticipating the sequel.
