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.

Jared, welcome to my blog. What makes you passionate about writing?

This is probably my most favorite question, which I am asked often. I could talk about how I didn’t read or write until I was rescued by an above average teacher, or I could mention that I have always had the ability to see whole worlds and universes made up in my mind. Really the source of my passion for writing is that I can share my most intimate thoughts and expose my feelings with the world for scrutiny. One day I will pass on, and my children, great grandchildren and so on will be able to open my book and I can share with them a piece of me. I can tell you that I am a champion of people sharing their stories, everyone on the planet has at least one story to share, and if not for the sake of those around them, for the sake of their future generations.

Jaleta, is a pleasure to have you in our blog today. What did you just finish reading?

I just finished reading a friend’s manuscript, very entertaining story about dogs, twin souls, demons, and past life regression. I’d recommend it, but I have no idea when it will be published. (more…)
