Time is Relative for a Knight of Time

A blend of X-Men and Doctor Who with a side of historic fact
— Kirkus Review

            Meet Rolland Wright - a seventeen year old orphan living out of his car in rural Woodland Hills, California. Aside from grappling with the fact of being abandoned by his drunken father two years previous following his mothers mysterious murder, his life mostly revolves around finding a warm place to sleep at night. When one day he is attacked by men claiming to have killed his father, Rolland discovers a strange ability to slow the flow of time around him, beginning a journey that takes him to places outside of time, space, and eventually to the early 19th century to fight the sinister General Andrew Jackson. With the help of a rag-tag group of historical and mythical figures with various supernatural abilities of their own (Joan of Arc, Jesse James, etc) known as the Knights of Time, Rolland solves the mystery behind his mother's murder, falls in love, battles the evil Edward Vilthe - reaper of souls, and finds a home of his own in the paradise known as Eden.

            The Time is Relative series chronicles the origin story of the mythical figure Father Time, beginning with the award winning first novel, Time is Relative for a Knight of Time. All dates and events are historically accurate. The participants... maybe not.


Time is Relative for Wavering Loyalties

Expected to be released April 2017

          The  second chapter in the Time is Relative series continues the origin story of the mythical Father Time (Rolland Wright) as he grows from boy to man.

     After escaping imprisonment, Rolland is due to begin his training at the prestigious Academy of Light. While learning to control his extraordinary abilities, Rolland must also navigate more ordinary teenage pursuits - first love, fitting in, and finding himself. 

          Meanwhile, the Knights of Time are scattered throughout the Time Stream. Judah & Joan Raines appear in 1930s Lae Island to locate the infamous pilot, Amelia Earhart.   Yet unbeknownst to them,  a familiar face is tracking their every movement, searching for the piece of the mysterious Project Dreamcoat. On the hunt for a missing comrade, the remaining knights hurtle towards 1803 Haiti in the midst of a violent revolution.  As these events unfold, Edward Vilthe stalks the shadows, slowly implementing his master plan.
