2145.  All work and world negotiations take place in virtual reality, call the Realty Cloud – run and organized by men. Charity Northquest knows that her future is set – marriage at 18, babies and the same struggle over dwindling resources that her mother faces daily.

But there is another way.  And Charity accidentally becomes one of the girls the women of the Time Cult send back in time.  Charity has only 100 hours in the past to make the right change that will create a better future.  Or she will stay in the past forever?

Your Book Starts Here.

There is nothing more satisfying than writing a book, either fiction or non fiction. I help writers take what they have and create the book they need.

  • I work with professionals – coaches, leaders, bloggers and speakers.
  • Do you want to be a real author and demonstrate that you are the authority in your field?
  • Do you want to express your creativity or (finally) tell your story?
  • Authoring a book will enhance your career and yes, your life.
  • How do I know? I create fiction and nonfiction books myself.

or drop me an email to schedule a free consultation. I will help you discover the best way to take to get your book written and published.

While you are organizing your slides, notes and research, my favorite program to keep it all together is Scrivener.  I promote it all the time – I use it for my novels and as my every day journal.  I have not found anything better.  I thought you’d like to see it for yourself, just click on the link below and check it out.  If you need a solution for keeping your work organized, this is it.
