I have always had an interest in science fact and science fiction. It fascinates me the way the two intertwine while also often times giving a subtle message. My hope is that we someday are able to travel to the stars. I also believe the best way to teach both children and adults is to convey information in an entertaining fashion. That is what I have tried to do in my children's book.
My favorite authors are: Ray Bradbury, Anne Rice, and Neil Gaiman because their writing contains such vivid imagery and reads like poetry. Another favorite is Stan Lee because his talent brought "comic book" heroes and villains to life. He gives more depth to his characters in a few pages than many authors give their characters in an entire novel.
Jessie Stern's life has taken a turn to the weird. It started out great. On her 13th birthday she discovered she was going on a space bound scientific expedition with her dad. But before they even leave Earth she is chased by beings she never thought existed–the Time Shifters-a race that can control time. Along with her cousin Daniel, Jessie tries to stop the Time Shifters before they stop her.
