Exciting News!!!


Last Thursday my editor emailed with exciting news. My publisher has accepted another book of mine. It is a young-adult, time-travel titled The Stone Traveler. I know many of you were hoping my exciting news would have to do with the release date of The Forgotten Warrior’s sequel, but sadly it does not. However, The Stone Traveler is part of my Givers of Light series. I’m so excited!!! Let me tell you about this new book.

This is the story of a young man named Tag. He’s going through a difficult time trying to accept that his father and brother have left. His mother takes him to his grandfather’s cabin for the summer, hopeful that being away from home and spending time with his grandpa will help him work things out. Tag decides to run away, but he meets a man named John Doe, who has a very intriguing stone...a stone that Tag thinks can help him. He steals the stone and as he runs away he is suddenly sent back to Book of Mormon times.

There he meets Sabirah, the daughter of Samuel the Lamanite. Didn’t know he had a daughter did you? Well, I didn’t either until I wrote this fictional book that takes place at the time when Christ was crucified. She is in search of her father and Tag comes on the scene right when Sabirah is about to capture Princess Jamila, the daughter of wicked King Jacob. Sabirah believes the princess knows what happened to her father. (picture from Real Heroes. Check out their website realheroposters.com/.../samuel-the-lamanite.html)

Despite Tag’s desire to return home, he is soon caught up in Sabirah’s desperate search for her father. I won’t tell you how it ends. There’s action, adventure, battles and a little romance. You’ll be happy to know that this book does not have a cliffhanger ending.

The Stone Traveler is scheduled to be released this June!!! As the date draws near I’ll let you know a little more about the book and will hopefully post the first chapter on my website.

As you may have noticed, I’ve posted a countdown on my blog for the release of The Stone Traveler. I want to keep you in the loop of the book’s progress, so periodically I’ll let you know what’s going on as the book goes through the publishing process such as what the cover will look like, when it goes to press and book signings. I’m thrilled to have this book published, and I think you’ll enjoy it as much as you did the first book of The Forgotten Warrior and An Angel on Main Street.
