A Way Back - an upcoming time travel release!

Here is the tag line and blurb for my January 2011 time travel release.

In the 1930s oil fields of Texas, a woman from the future finds new purpose as she helps a banker rebuild his financial empire.

Amber Mathis, a Wall Street investment banker, returns to her office after burying her mother. Distraught, tired of the rat race, she's determined to make a career change. In the elevator she falls and rises to find herself in a vintage lift. The date is February 25, 1930, and a man stands on the window ledge ready to jump.

Wellman Hathaway, owner and CEO of Hathaway Bank in New York struggles to pay his depositors half their losses. A woman claiming to be from 2009 appears in his office and involves him in a scheme that forces them into marriage. With Amber's knowledge of the financial history of the 1930s, they travel to the oil fields of Texas to recoup Wellman's funds.

Two people from different centuries are thrown together to survive a difficult time. Will they find more than A Way Back to prosperity?

To research for this story, my husband and I visited the East Texas Oil Museum in Kilgore, Texas. They have an entire street scene replicated. Notice in this picture the muddy street. Automobiles shared the roadway with mule drawn wagons.

I loved writing this story. The 1930s was a time of change. It was a time of hardship, but also one when fortunes could be made. I hope you'll travel back in time with me when A Way Back comes out in January 2011.

Thanks for reading!
