I'm so happy to hear that you're a fan of the TIMELESS books. I do have ideas for continuing the series, but first I have another book to write for my publisher- first draft is due next month actually! :) I did add a brand-new short story to the end of the TIMEKEEPER paperback, if you want to check in on Michele & Philip. :) Take care, and happy reading!(less)

“There is nothing in this life that can destroy you but yourself. Bad things happen to everyone, but when they do, you can't just fall apart and die. You have to fight back. If you don't, you're the one who loses in the end. But if you do keep going and fight back, you win.”
Alexandra Monir, Timeless

“You are lyricist, me a composer - you and I make a complete song.”
Alexandra Monir, Timeless

I can't live in the normal world,
I'm just chasing time
I belong in that endless whirl
The place where you're mine.

Alexandra Monir, Timeless
