It’s the year 2150 and the exotically beautiful Chandra Jarvis is jogging in Golden Gate Park, when suddenly she is catapulted into a parallel universe to a bygone era: the Old West. Fortunately, her futuristic suit of special fibers and a personal computer chip implant come with her, as she will need every available advantage to survive on the Oregon Trail of 1850.
Leaving behind her somewhat labile, sheltered, electronic dream life, she is thrust into rash encounters with all the people, grit, and danger of that time. She experiences the gamut of emotions, from love to heartache, to comfort and fear, establishing true and lasting friendships along the way.
Will she ever be able to return home? Can she ultimately accustom herself to the ways of the west and find a new direction for her life?
Join Chandra in her quest for that answer and more in this first novel of the Parallel Past time travel series, a refreshing dip into other worlds and possibilities still to be explored.

About the Author
Biography of Edward J. Schneider
I was born in a little town in Southeastern Wyoming called Wheatland in 1941. I am the fourth of six children. We moved to a small town of one hundred fifty people called Hawk Springs, Wyoming, when I was six years old.
My father opened a blacksmith shop there, and we lived in couple of tarpaper shacks and later in a granary storage building that my father converted into a house. We lived there for ten years. My school class consisted of only four pupils. During those years, I worked summers for farmers and ranchers.
We moved to the larger town of Torrington, Wyoming, where I finished high school.
I moved to the Los Angeles area when I was twenty-one years old and spent the next fifteen years going to night school, working as an engineer’s aid, a lab assistant in research and development in the aerospace field, a data control clerk, and a computer operator at a large hospital complex.
Missing the sunsets, beautiful clouds, and the breathtaking views of far horizons—and the good people—I eventually moved back to Wyoming, where I worked as a programmer analyst for the next eleven years, and then did the same thing in Idaho and Utah until I retired and returned again to Wyoming. It was in Idaho that I met my wonderful wife.
My hobbies are eclectic reading, playing the guitar, singing (until a few years ago), amateur astronomy, and writing.
I am the father of two children and the grandfather of five on my biological side, and have four stepchildren and fifteen step-grandchildren.
I currently live in Southwestern Wyoming on five acres with my wife.
