Besides writing novels and short stories, he contributes to his own blog “Have We Had Help?” His literary interests include science fiction, history, both ancient and modern, and humorous tales like those written by his fellow writer Derek Haines, such as HAL. Now retired, he lives in his home town surrounded by his favourite books, ranging from historical fact to science fiction.

Corina Marion’s father is dead.

Off to a never-ending war as a Red Cross doctor before Corina was even born, Luther Marion has been a constant but increasingly distant presence in his daughter’s life for sixteen years. Damaged pictures. Short letters. And three brief phone calls received before Corina was old enough to walk.

Now, Luther Marion has returned home at last—as a body in a box to be buried. Corina’s mother is devastated. Her small, backwoods town mourns the loss of its local hero.

And Corina…isn’t sure how she feels about the death of a father she never really met.

But when a mysterious old man confronts Corina at her father’s funeral, she finds herself drawn to his impossible offer: a chance to know the late Luther Marion. And in a moment of uncertainty, Corina makes a choice with consequences she can barely fathom. A choice that sends her to the last place she ever expected to go.

Her father’s hometown. Six hundred miles south.

And twenty-five years in the past.

Saving Annabelle (The Adventures of Max & Maddie # 3)
by Mary Cunningham

“Nothing says Christmas like uncovering your tree and dragging it up the basement stairs.”

Thoughts like this leave Maddie shaking her head about her family’s pre-decorated, artificial monstrosity.

During Christmas break, a timely invitation from another friend leads Maddie and Max on a trip to an abandoned farm, to find a real tree. An untimely toss of a magic coin sends them back, smack-dab in the middle of the Civil War. When they discover a lost girl, Annabelle, Christmas takes on a whole new meaning.

The thirteen-year-old best friends have traveled back in time on other occasions, thanks to the antique gold coin given to them by an old miner at the Pine Mountain Gold Museum, in Georgia. Never before, however, have they been in the middle of a war! They’ve discovered on previous trips, that the only way to get back home is to accomplish a good deed, and since they’re pretty sure they aren’t nearly powerful enough to end the Civil War, they must find out what sent them to the 1860’s.

When Max and Maddie discover the young slave girl hiding in the woods, they’re pretty sure the task at hand will be reuniting her with her family.

Annabelle’s journey began two days earlier with her family’s attempted flight north before they get caught up in the impending war. In their quest to flee the only home Annabelle and her sister have ever known—a West Georgia plantation—and connect with the Underground Railroad, the young girl is separated from her family when men on horseback with hunting dogs catch their scent and give chase.

With the war gearing up, well-armed confederate soldiers occupying the main roads, and ever-present gangs scouring the woods for runaways, a brave pioneer, Jed Duffy hold the key to their way north, to safety.

Her mother, Rebecca, died when Sam was sixteen and she never talked much about her past. Samantha is thrilled to hear that she will be allowed to research her mother’s past for a school assignment. Upon arriving in Rebecca’s old neighborhood, Sam arranges to have a tour of her mother’s grade school. She finds an area inside the school that had been damaged and at first, thinking a ghost has been inhabiting the gymnasium, she accidentally crosses over into the year 1975; the year when her mother is in kindergarten. Fascinated and scared at the same time, Sam gets to witness her mother’s childhood up front as she inadvertently gets involved in an old case of a young girl’s accidental death. Little Josie Baker, a classmate of Sam’s mother, died that year inside the school gymnasium. But, was it an accident? After uncovering the dark secret surrounding Josie’s death, Samantha wonders if she’ll ever find her way back home where her father and best friend, Josh, have been waiting for her return.
