Out of the Past, Heritage Time Travel Romance series, book #1


Out of the Past, Heritage Time Travel Romance Series, Book #1







We left a trail of clothes from the kitchen and through the house—his shirt and then my shirt. His shoes, my shoes, and as he slipped me out of my pants and I was wrestling unsuccessfully with his jeans button, he had me in his arms and I was wrapped around his waist as he held me and carried me to the second floor. By the time we arrived at his bedroom door and he flipped on the light switch, which lit the two bedside lamps, he had my bra unhooked and off me, and as I was in just my panties and still straddling his waist with my legs, he kissed me deeply. Our now bare chests touched, and his tongue plunged deep into my mouth as he bent to lay me across the bed.

Into the Future, Heritage Time Travel Romance, book #2

Portion of a review from InD'tale Magazine

Unfortunately the reviewer had NOT read book #1 and I am disappointed that the same person did not read book 2, however she had some great things to say.



Into the Future Amazon link


 After the first turbulent events in the first book, Torie Mills and Dave Cameron are finally happy. They have gotten married, had a baby, and life seemed good. It turns out it was all too good... to be true. The time warps are back and are more vicious and heartbreaking than ever. In order to keep their precious new family safe they will have to make some hard choices.

A very emotional read about two people who are so perfect for each other and yet fate conspires against them. Because the beginning of the book was confusing, with a lot of unfamiliar characters and names (that failed to reappear later on) not to mention the allusions to the events of the previous book, it becomes obvious the previous book should be required reading first. Still, once the reader catches up with it, it turns out to be a mesmerizing read!

 Dave is stunning. With all his time warps and the emotions they raise in him, it is impossible to describe just how touching they are. His love for Torie and their child is present, of course, but here again, the reader needs to read the previous book in order to really appreciate it. The biggest disappointment is the cliffhanger. Nevertheless, it is a book that will leave no reader's heart cold!

Forevermore book #3 Heritage Time Travel Romance

Today I sent off, to my interior designer, all the beautiful old tin-types and photographs that will be at the back of this finale of my Heritage Time Travel Romance series. I wanted readers to be able to see the real people who my main cast of fictional characters were based on. 

Torie's ancestors are all fictional but with such a large cast of characters including three generations and covering three centuries of times, I needed to use some means to keep them all straight chronologically. Also it made it easy for readers to get to know them as characters and who belonged to who as they learned about and came to know the Wyman and Mills family's.

So the real family of my great-great-grandparents Richard and Fanny Axtell Yeoman became the fictional family of Judson and Rose Simpson Wyman. And with my family tree program always at the ready and using three generations of my own ancestors as a  framework, I began writing my adventure that soon became an epic sized journey which would take three novels to complete.


Most of the stories included in the series are true, or have at least kernels of truth although credited to my fictional cast. For example from Out of the Past, the touching scene when a newlywed and very pregnant great-grandaunt Ivy McFall and her young husband Joshua are inhabited by Dave and Torie. Torie's description of Joshua's tragic and lonely death back in the 1800's, I found in an old newspaper and it struck a cord with me and stayed with me. Joshua McFall was the perfect character to attribute that sad end to.

My own true great-grandaunt Ida McFall and her husband Joseph McFall actually were married for more than twelve years and Joseph died much less dramatically at the age of 30 from illness. In the story, Ivy and Joshua had but one child before his sad end. The real life couple had four children, their last child being Georgia McFall, who became an only child for the purpose of the story and her name became... Katie McFall.

In Into the Future, many of the travels Dave must endure are true stories that I collected through my years of genealogy research and hours hunkered down in dusty old libraries and historical museums, reading old newspapers. The poor little toddler's  end is a dramatized version of what may have happened. The story I read gave the basics of the scalding hot bucket of water, the poor mother looking away for a moment and I dramatized the possible scene Dave arrived in the middle of. The terrible car accident that left Dave struggling to survive a near drowning and many of the stories that became his personal hell in Into the Future are real stories from Iowa history.

In Forevermore, the travels continue and Torie will learn about her gift and discover that the world is nothing she once believed it to be as she is schooled by a patient and wise old traveler who holds all the keys.
