HE MAJORED IN SCIENCE AND MINORED IN UNREALIZED DREAMS
High school teacher Jack Riggs is having a streak of bad luck.
In a matter of hours he is:
* Arrested as a terrorist
* Thrown in jail
* Breaking up with his psycho girlfriend
* And flung a century and a half into the past.
A TIME TRAVEL RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK
It's 157 years ago in Norfolk, Virginia and Jack has no money, a nearly dead iPhone
in his pocket, and no idea how he got there. He must assimilate if he's to have
any hope of getting back. Tormented, he tells his tale to Frances Sanger, a
woman with trust issues who nonetheless trusts Jack to stop a war that's been
brewing for over a hundred years. He alone holds the key to saving nearly a
million people, and he's got to do it in three and a half years.
THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT THE CIVIL WAR FOUGHT
Abner Adkins, lawyer and cheating ex-husband of Frances, represents a group of
ruthless Southern terrorists that who will kill anyone who tries to keep the
peace--and concerning Jack, it's personal. The Southern economy is invested in
the slave trade and some 2013 ideas could wreak havoc.
HELP FROM YOUNG SAMUEL CLEMENS AND RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Can Jack invent this country out of its bloodiest war ever while trying to stay one
step ahead of those who want him dead? Jack, with the help of a cast of
historical superstars, come up with a plan that can stop the war before it
starts. Corporate spies and suicide bombers threaten to ruin it all.
Even with a real life guardian angel can Jack and his ideas survive?
EVERY CHANGE RIPPLES INTO THE FUTURE
Time Change Book One: The Jump jumps back to 1856 and an America on the verge of war . . . and discovery.
"I like my coffee strong, my physics quantum, and I'm a firm believer in the
theory of relativity." ~Jack Riggs, Inventor 1856
