Book 1.0 of The Instant Eternity Saga
This is my debut novel, The Time Minders, and the first in a series of four futuristic novels that follow my central character, Angela Manning – a precocious 16 year old college student – through her four years of higher education and secret agent training. She gets recruited early to college, and into a top secret government agency, because of an ability she didn’t even know she had: she can time travel with the power of her mind. It’s a little like a cross between Alias (girl secret agent) and Minority Report (precognitive crime-prevention).
Angela learns that just because she’s special and smart, just because she’s becoming some kind of powerful vigilante superhero – it doesn’t mean her life isn’t setting up to be a grueling struggle.
The Time Minders serves up big helpings of intrigue and frustrated romance, hinting at the possibility of much more intrigue and more frustration to come in future installments, along with the moral ambiguity of genetic engineering, cybernetic implants, and the rise of artificial intelligence.
