At the Other End:
I have 15 minutes to save my mother’s life….


15 minutes is all the Rewind Agency gives you in the past, but for Lara Crane it’s enough time to race through the city, find her mother, and stop her from being killed in a mugging that happened over ten years ago.


But that’s not how it happened. The story she’s been told all her life is a lie and when Lara takes a bullet meant for her mother, her future changes forever.


The love of her life acts like a stranger. Her simple life is replaced with a giant house, glamorous clothes and a new boyfriend.


Except someone knows her secret. And he will try to stop her at every turn as she races against the clock to unravel a dangerous conspiracy.


15 Minutes is an edgy high octane YA thriller that can be described as Back to the Future meets Inception where the people Lara trusts change in an instant. She is in a timeline she doesn't understand, and is about to make one fatal mistake as she faces an enemy so familiar, he’s family.

Author Bio...
I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.

But instead, I'll say I don't want to write like everyone else. I don't want to craft stories you've read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you've ever read. 

I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad. 

If you do, then I'll have succeeded. If not, I'll keep trying.

Inspiration behind '15 Minutes'

That's a really good question became it came from a few sources. First, I had beta read a first person novel for a friend and loved it. I knew I had to write a novel from this point of view, so I was looking for a novel that would lend itself well to this form of writing.

Second I was watching a lot of high concept movies like Inception, In Time, and Source Code. In time was about a society where the rich could by more time for their life and Source Code about a dead soldier being sent back in time virtually to stop a bomb from going off.  I liked the idea of the main character being kind of tragic, and being forced into a weird scenario.

Then one day in my head popped the sentence 'I  have 15 Minutes'. I knew it would be the first sentence (still is) and would be about time travel to save someone’s life.
