About this author

I am an engineer by day and an author by night. My love of writing started when I was thirteen and, quite frankly, bored out of my mind. My mother and I were visiting my grandparents in Egypt during the summer holidays. To me, this meant I was cut off from English television and all my American school friends. I had already read every Nancy Drew book I'd brought for the trip and it seemed my last hope of finding something to do was my aunt’s dinosaur of a laptop that didn’t even run Windows 95.

History of the Time Laws Ch 1 - 3 (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
3 chapters   —   updated Jan 23, 2013 05:39PM
Description: Fifteen-year-old Elizabeth is part of a select group of magic-wielding time travelers. However when the rules that govern time-travel loss effect, chaos ensues and it is up to her to make things right again. As her enemies and allies scramble back and forth through the timeline to sway a millenniums-old war in their favor, her personal past and memory changes. Elizabeth was raised by her oldest brother, Luke, after their parents passed away two years ago, in 1979. She is a tough girl, capable of handling herself any kind of fight: fist, knife or magical. Or is she? Are her parents still alive? Does she still live on Earth or did the war force her and her older brother, Mark, to take refuge on an alien planet? If Elizabeth can’t make sense of out of mayhem, the universe and everyone she loves will be destroyed.
