A history-changing battle & Time Travel Thriller…

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

 

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books
growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long
past. 
 
Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and
Medieval Worlds. 
 
Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart
to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in
worlds.
 If they fail…

 

She could die over 3300 years from home!

 

Tackle the elements & evil of Ancient Egypt…
A history-changing battle & Time Travel Thriller…
Fifteen-year-old Rosa doesn’t see dead people…
She hears them & talks to them.

When she agrees to help King Tut’s ghost find his lost queen & clear his
family’s name, she doesn’t count on falling for him.

She & Tut must also outwit an evil pharaoh determined to stop them…
Even if it means one of them must die.

Get it today and see who triumphs.

Snippet:
No
way am I that crazy.
‘Touch me, Roosa. You will see I’m real
enough.’
Touch him? Is he as crazy as I am? Okay,
so I’m going to touch him, just for my own peace of mind.
I reach out my hand, fingers extended,
trying to reach him but not move from the wall. A crooked smile appears
face. He takes a couple of steps forward, reaches out and touches me.
Lightning heat shoots out from him, races up my arm, switches direction and dives into my stomach. I snatch my hand
and grab my belly with both hands. The burning sensation knocks my knees out
from under me. I slump to the floor, still leaning on the wall. The room spins,
and my head swims. Tears mixed with stars blur my vision so there is no focusing.
Not enough air in here; my chest tightens as if the lungs inside are ready to
explode.

The problem is that she is a girl and (more…)
