Timekeeper: A Short-Story Contest

Timekeeper book cover“You are a Timekeeper: one of the select individuals born with a gift that enables you to move and manipulate Time.”

Michele Windsor is still trying to understand her time-traveling gift. As she settles into her new life with her wealthy grandparents on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, she slowly begins to uncover her family’s many secrets.

Reading her father’s journals, she learns about his own time-traveling adventures and the family’s connection to the mysterious (and sinister?) Time Society. But she also discovers her father’s entanglement with a vengeful Windsor relative. Before she knows it, she’s caught up in a 120 year-old family rift—one so dangerous, it has life-or-death consequences.
