PRAISE FOR THE TIME CAVERN
"The Time Cavern will stimulate and captivate the imagination of young readers, girls and boys alike. I urge parents and teachers to add this book to their libraries." -- D. B. Pacini, author of The Loose End of the Rainbow

"Todd Fonseca's Time Cavern is filled with adventure, mysteries, and life lessons all crafted into a charming tale. I loved the little fun facts woven throughout the story, which made it an enjoyable read even for someone my age. I highly recommend this fantastic book...well done, sir." -- Michael J. Sullivan, author of The Riyria Revelations

"The Time Cavern showcases masterful storytelling that will immediately be passed forward to one of my nephews. I highly recommend picking up a copy for the young explorers that you love." -- Roy L. Pickering, author of Patches of Grey

"The Time Cavern introduces us to what might just be the most original time machine concept ever-not to give anything away, but if you're a nut about time-travel, this is worth it for that alone." -- Eric D. Knapp, author of Cluck: Murder Most Fowl

"Charming is the only word I can think of to describe this book. The Amish element, the two cute kids, their families, the old barn, and, of course, what they discover in the woods is a compelling blend." -- Sandy Nathan, author of Numenon

"The mystery of The Time Cavern is clever, well-thought out, nicely researched in its details, and leaves me wanting more. I would love to read more of this story, so I hope a sequel will be forthcoming. Very well-written & highly recommended to readers of all ages!" -- Rai Aren, author of Secret of the Sands

Meet the Author

Todd A. Fonseca grew up in the northern Indiana city of Mishawaka. This small town is home to a large Amish community. Those visiting the area experience the Amish through the town's shops and nearby Amish Acres. Todd learned of the Amish culture through frequent family Sunday drives to rural Nappanee Indiana.

During these early years, Fonseca's interest in the arts began with music. He became an accomplished accordionist participating in national competitions leading to a #4 placement in 1983. Fonseca has also performed in New York's Carnegie Recital Hall. His high school career added drama to his resume. Having the role of curmudgeon Mr. Hassler in The Pajama Game, led to being cast as the lead in the production Jack and the Beanstalk.

The Time Cavern is his first published work, and was a finalist for the 2009 National Indie Excellence Award for Young Adult Fiction. His second book, Inverted: The Second Adventure was released in November 2011.

At Marquette University, Fonseca received a Biomedical Engineering graduate degree. His professional career includes numerous positions in medical device companies. He is currently a senior clinical research director for a company researching deep brain stimulation for treating conditions such as Parkinson's Disease. Fonseca lives in Minnesota with his wife and four boys.

    highly recommend - you must check out both books in this series

    This book is the second book in the series and it is awesome. Actually both books are awesome, and if you have teenagers they will love them too. My 13 year old son can't wait for the next book in the series to come out. Please read because I know you will enjoy them. The character are very interesting and the story line is great.
