Engrossing first novel. We eagerly await future volumes.

Brisk storytelling, likeable characters, and a great plot.
Charlotte's Library

Don't Know Where, Don't Know When is an enjoyable treat of a novel.
Becky Laney, Becky's Book Reviews

I learned more is this extremely entertaining 204-page book than in [my] 900 plus page history book and history class.
Book Divas


A fun, educational mystery, this story does a successful job of bringing history within reach.

The Snipesville Chronicles, Book 3
Look Ahead, Look Back

It’s big news in boring Snipesville when a skeleton is found in a local park. But to reluctant time travelers Hannah, Alex, and Brandon, the discovery is a shocking omen of adventures to come.

The Professor, their mentor, has disappeared. And if she’s not the skeleton, who is?

Soon, the three land in the distant year of 1752. Some people they meet, like ruthless planter Mr. Gordon, trust their own smarts to bring success. Others, like Sukey, a slave, think that what happens to them is pure luck.

But Hannah, Alex, and Brandon soon learn that for everyone in the 1700s, fortune’s wheel is constantly turning. And at a time when ghosts, witches, little folk, and dreams can seem as real as slavery, greed, and cruelty, their choices, too, are very few indeed.


The Snipesville Chronicles, Book 2
A Different Day, A Different Destiny
When you wake up in the year 1851 on a Scottish hillside…or down an English coal mine…or in a field on a Southern plantation, you know you're in for a lousy day.

No day has been normal for Hannah and Alex Dias since they moved from San Francisco to the little town of Snipesville, Georgia. Bad enough that they and their dorky new friend Brandon Clark became reluctant time-travelers to World War Two England. Now things are about to get worse. Much worse.
From the cotton fields of the slave South, to the poorest slums of Victorian Scotland, to London’s glittering Crystal Palace, the kids chase a twenty-first century gadget through the mid-nineteenth century.
Finding it is only the beginning of what they must do to save two beloved places from destruction, and heal a wound in Time.


The Snipesville Chronicles, Book 1
Don't Know Where, Don't Know When

What a nightmare.

Hannah Dias, California Girl with Attitude, and Alex, her laid-back brother, have moved from exciting San Francisco to boring Snipesville. Life doesn't improve when they meet Brandon, a dorky kid who is plotting his escape from the Deep South, and the weird Professor.
Suddenly, the kids are catapulted to World War Two England. They fall into a world of dragon ladies, bomb blasts, ugly underwear, stinky sandwiches, painful punishments, and non-absorbing toilet paper.
They learn so much more than they could ever learn in a history class. Not that they want to learn it.

But they can't go home until they find George Braithwaite...Whoever he is, and whatever he has to do with Snipesville.
