Fall into this edgy, action-packed, darkly comedic, dystopian love story, and be prepared to encounter a finicky time machine, a mysterious seashell, and a very clever dog (some sex, some swearing, some violence, but no vampires and absolutely no ditzes.)
It's The Andromeda Strain meets Back to the Future with a healthy dose of Dirty Dancing.
When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present–and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives twenty years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured nineteen-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that’s a heartbreaker, save the world or not.
This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it’s the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn’t have the proper footwear. It’s a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.
Love conquers all. (Unfortunately, it’s not going to be enough.)
From the Author
Crossing In Time is a character-driven work of cross-genre fiction. (If I said it’s non-fiction you wouldn’t believe me. See how difficult this is going to be?)
The book is a love story told from alternating first-person points of view.
Think The Andromeda Strain meets Back to the Future with a healthy dose of Dirty Dancing with a nod to Robert Heinlein for good sex (in his fiction), a curtsy to Madeleine L’Engle for wrinkles (in time), and a tail wag to Margaret Atwood (because we should all wag more and bark less).
Fall into this award-winning, edgy, action-packed, darkly comedic, dystopian, time-travel love story (some sex, some swearing, some violence, but no vampires and absolutely no ditzes!)
Oh, and every word is true.
