About M. M. Justus

"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.

I don't generally read travel books but I found this one an enjoyable read. She visits many interesting places and adapts to changing circumstances. The ending is surprising but one wishes her luck with her next adventure.

I am not normally a fan of travel books. But I'd read and enjoyed Meg's time travel fiction, so decided to give this a try. I really liked it! This is an engaging description of a 3 month solo drive most of the way around the US, starting in the NW. Lots of interesting encounters and adventures en route. Gave me a good feel for many of the places she visited.
