Overview

THERE ARE COUNTLESS STORIES IN THE WORLD WITH MANY THEMES.
Some stories tell the great adventures of brave heroes, a few speak of the clash between gods and men, and others simply chronicle the lives of lonely souls whose greatest quest is to make it through each day.

The story I want to tell you is true, though it is difficult to believe. It doesn’t tell of a great warrior who goes into a noble battle. There are no dragons to slay in this book, but dragons don’t always come shaped like the lizard creatures of fairy tales. Perhaps we all have our own dragons that we must slay throughout our lifetime, if we will only be brave enough to ride out in conquest. This is the tale of how I defeated a few dragons in my life. I learned to overcome the word impossible. In the process, I found my true friends and where I truly belonged.

Dr. Andrew Collins is an average man who dreams of a better life, but when he suddenly finds his way into 19th Century London he gets more than he bargained for. Trapped in a bygone age, Collins teams up with the brilliant Livesey Hawkins to find where he truly belongs. Collins and Hawkins must strive to achieve the impossible, and in the process discover the true meaning of friendship.

Filled with delightful dialogue, science fiction time travels that stretch the mind and a fast pace, this book is filled with intrigue, mystery and delicious drama that will keep the reader turning the page for more.

Author’s Acknowledgements:

First and foremost, God deserves all the credit for this book. A few months ago I misread a word count, and now I’m getting a book published. It is only by His grace that it was at all possible.

Next, I would like to thank both Donna Levy and Rose Bethard for their amazing editing abilities and patience. Donna started me out, but Rose was there to help me finish. Together you two helped me create my story, and I will always be grateful. Thank you!

Dear John (I’ve been waiting to say that), thanks for giving me a chance. You took a big risk by taking on my book, and I appreciate that. Thank you, oh wise Master Publisher.

Lastly, thank you Andrea Waldrop for all of your help and inspiration. You are my art and literary critic in addition to being my best friend (which is tough enough). ¡Gracias chica!

I feel that she is a very intelligent writer. I was surprised; she was only 19 years old. Keep writing! Midori Bamba (author of "The Three Sailors.")
