Complicating things is Bo’s manic depressive disorder, a troubling but occasionally valuable problem for which she always, well sometimes, takes her meds. The prime directive in Bo’s job is “Don’t become emotionally involved with the child!” But the little boy is so bright inside his silence, and so alone. Bo feels the ominous first ripples of an oncoming manic episode and grabs her meds, but they won’t have much effect for weeks and the child is in danger now!
Risking her job and ultimately her life in a perhaps-delusional race to protect a four-year-old whose only word is his own name – “Weppo” – Bo finds herself alone with the child in a desert night fraught with terrors as she tries to reach an imagined safety among the Paiute. But political intrigue, desperate secrets and a relentless evil lurk in every shadow of a moonlit landscape in which Bo has only her own intense and uncanny perceptions as guide. She knows she’s “crazy,” but sometimes crazy sees what rational cannot. And “crazy” is now Weppo’s only chance for a life!
“A sensationally fine first novel… breathtakingly well-told…”The Los Angeles Times
In the process, they have a dark awakening when their typically predictable world collides with the complexities of the magical world. The twins face unimaginable dangers, thrusting them into an unexpected choice: to live as they always have or to learn the truth about their past and enter a world that is equally thrilling and terrifying.
More importantly, however, is whether they even have a choice, or will fate not only force this new magical reality upon them, but require them to sacrifice everyone they love in doing so?

Teleportation. Telepathy. Superior strength and speed. Abilities she never wanted. Abilities she must learn to control.
Emily Heart used to have a normal life. A life filled with family, friends, and a warm bed to sleep in. But that was before the night of The Taking. The night when she was abducted and genetically transformed against her will.
Now she’s lost everything and living on the streets of Glassford Park, struggling to stay alive one more day. But it won’t be easy. Not when a gang wants to kill her, cops want to arrest her, and a reporter wants to expose her.
However, Emily’s problems don’t end there. Any uncontrolled burst of emotion can send her jumping randomly across time and space, arriving naked and alone. If she’s not careful, she could travel to infinity and beyond, never to be heard from again.
Emily doesn’t quite know what she is, or what she’s capable of, but she knows what she can’t afford to do — feel anything.
And she can’t afford to make any mistakes.
Get prepared for what readers are calling “a thrilling, non-stop ride that you won’t be able to put down.”
Interview with the Author
Q – So, what makes The Emily Heart Time Jumper Series special?
A – It’s a mix of things, really. When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create something that mirrored exactly the kind of books I like to read: something unexpected, a little shocking and definitely heart pounding. Time traveler stories have been done to death and so have genetic engineering sagas. But rarely have they been mixed together with a homeless teenage girl whose emotions can send her jumping randomly across time and space. Emily can’t have friends, can’t get involved or fall in love, and can’t let her emotions get the best of her.
The Emily Heart Time Jumper Series of books are a great mix of several genres: time travel, romance, paranormal, young adult, and urban, with a few kick-you-in-the-teeth surprises that few readers see coming!
Overall, The Emily Heart Time Jumper Series is designed to keep you turning the pages – and I’ve made sure there’s never a dull moment. Judging by the reviews, I think I’ve accomplished my goals.
Q – What order should I read the books in?
A – I’ve written the series in several parts, each one as a standalone episode or as some call it, short fiction. But you do want to read them in order starting with Part 1, which is available now. Part 2 will be released on March 15, 2015. The remainder of the series will be released in 2015.
Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?
A – Because The Emily Heart Time Jumper Series is a fast, fun, thrill-ride that takes no prisoners!
Ultimately, readers who enjoy lightning-fast pacing with a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end will get one heck of a ride out of this very unique series.

It’s Mardi Gras season in post-Katrina New Orleans. With only one week until the big day, thousands of tourists have flocked to the city, paralyzing traffic and jamming the French Quarter with drunken crowds and garbage. City officials are hoping for record crowds and record revenues to generate the biggest boost to the Crescent City since the “big storm.”
Alexander Lee Destephano, legal counsel for Crescent City Medical Center, a world-class hospital, is excitedly anticipating her third Mardi Gras Season and most of all, her date with dashing art historian Mitch Landry. The couple has tickets to the Endymion Extravaganza, the biggest Mardi Gras Ball in New Orleans at the Super Dome on Saturday evening. After many months, life is good again and Alex is determined to experience and appreciate everything it has to offer. She can hardly wait until Saturday evening.
But, things change. Alex is stat-paged to the Medical Center at 6:00 am on Monday morning only to learn from her boss, Don Montgomery and her former husband, Dr. Robert Bonnet that Grace Raccine, a cancer patient at CCMC and the first lady of Louisiana has been found unconscious in her room covered with blood with no visible injury. To compound matters, patients are leaving CCMC against medical advice and staff are refusing to work creating crisis and chaos in the Obamacare hospital environment. By the end of the day, the night with Mitch at the Endymion Ball is the last thing on Alex’s mind!
