ABOUT CHRIS KARLSEN:

I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books.

My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.

I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream.

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, four rescue dogs and a rescue horse.

The war is not over for Will Flaherty . . .

While recuperating at his home in North Florida from injuries suffered in World War II, Will is startled when an escaped German prisoner of war, Max Scheffer, unexpectedly shows up on his doorstep.

To complicate matters, his sister Carol, a former volunteer at the facility where the German was being held, is involved in a romantic relationship with the escapee. At her urging and to settle an old debt relating to his wartime past, Will relents and provides the POW a ride to the Florida Keys where, according to the German, a plane will be awaiting to whisk him out of the country.

The closer they approach their destination, however, the clearer the intentions of the German become to Will, for what Max has in mind is not an escape but the ultimate revenge for his nation’s defeat.

When the town of Pompeii was buried in ashes in 79 AD, not everyone was taken by surprise. At least one person knew what was coming, Valerie Brooks, an involuntary time traveler from Victorian England, but her foreknowledge doesn’t help her. Declared a witch by the townspeople of Pompeii and sold into slavery, she has to find a way to make her master, Christos, believe her so they can escape the town before Vesuvius erupts. But given the mistrust between them fired by the jealousy of her master’s scheming lover, Valerie finds her influence dwindling as the deadly time approaches. Racing against the impending destruction of Pompeii, she must not only decipher the mystery of her time-shift, but the mystery of love as well.

REVIEWS:

“What fabulous reading! Ms. Barnett has given us an enchanting story with an ageless plot. She has also combined genres with exquisite results. Ms. Barnett has an imagination I envy. I thoroughly enjoy her characters and creative use of historical settings. I, personally, want that scrumptious man she introduced. In lieu of that unfortunate impossibility, I will settle for a copy of this one-in-a-million book that I can read again and again. Get one for yourself. You, too, will look like the cat that swallowed the canary when you have read it.” 5 Cups – Coffee Time Romance

“Through the Mists of Time by author Teri Barnett is an insightful and sensual indulgence for readers of historical romance. It is a story of a transcendent love and the development of character. The reader is pulled into the story through the detailed sketching of the heroine’s evolvement from an immature schoolgirl to a compassionate woman. If you are a fan of time travel romance then make it a point to read Teri Barnett’s Through the Mists of Time. You won’t regret it.” 4 Roses – A Romance Review

AUTHOR BIO:

Growing up in the ’70′s, I read every romance novel I could find, vowing one day to write my own. It took me until the 90′s to start writing seriously, but in the span of about ten years, I crafted four novels, a novella, and many short stories. The first novel I wrote, Hunter Moon, will never be seen. But first novels tend to be that way.

SYNOPSIS for SHADOW DREAMS:

Nestled in the plane of Paran, a peaceful town is shocked when their children start disappearing. Portents point to the re-emergence of the ancient priestess cult of Eitel, one known for stealing souls to gain immortality.

Bethany M’Doro is a healer and a Knower, assisting the Diggers by connecting artifacts and their owners. But even with her psychic abilities, she never envisioned the kidnapping of her own daughter, Sarah.

Connor Jessup never forgave himself for letting his wife Elizabeth leave so easily. He turned his back on his Nevada town, and on himself.

When Bethany’s latest excavation places the remains of Elizabeth at the center of the cult of Eitel, she knows she must travel to the Earth plane and seek Connor’s help. Arriving in shadow form, she first meets Connor in his dreams. He believes she’s an angel and gladly goes with her back to Paran. Once there, he comes to understand Bethany’s true nature, and finds himself drawn into the search for her missing daughter and the connection to his wife.

Now they must unravel the secrets behind the ancient cult and find Sarah before she’s lost forever. As their quest unfolds, they discover an even deeper unexpected journey – one filled with sorrow, loss, and redemption.

SYNOPSIS:

As the cleansing fires of Beltain burned and the villagers danced, Maere cu Llwyr witnessed the garrote murder of her parents at the hands of her father’s brother. Born with the triple signs of the goddess, legend tells that whoever shares Maere’s bed first will also share her healing power – and her uncle, Eugis, has vowed it will be he. With her mother and father out of his way, he hides Maere in a convent with plans to retrieve – and bed her – on her eighteenth birthday.

Maere carries no memory of the horrific events of that Beltain night. All she knows of her childhood is contained in remnants of dreams and a growing ability to heal through touch. Fearing she’ll be punished for this power, she hides herself away from the scrutiny of the nuns, determined to discover the secrets of her past so she might better understand the present and where her future lies.

Dylan mac Connall, betrothed of the girl Maere, never forgot that bloody night when he saw his own father murdered as well. Having escaped capture by Eugis’ men, he grows to adulthood under the tutelage of an old woman who helps him discover his own magic. But the magic does not appease his soul and he becomes consumed with hatred and plots of revenge against Eugis, becoming determined it will be he who takes Maere first.

But when Dylan enters the abbey and discovers the woman Maere has become, he finds himself taking on the role of protector when Eugis – aided by the goddess Morrigu and the Viking forces surrounding their lands – makes good on his promise and returns for Maere, setting off a series of events which can only be resolved with one of their deaths.

THE MESSENGER’S HANDBOOK by PAMELA DUMOND (Young Adult time-travel romance)

FRIDAY’S REVOLVING BOOK is “THE MESSENGER’S HANDBOOK” by PAMELA DuMOND!

GENRE: Young Adult romantic time-travel thriller

PUBLISHER: Pamela DuMond
AMAZON KINDLE SPECIAL PRICE $.99 CENTS! http://alturl.com/v9ffo
WHERE TO BUY: Amazon Kindle. Lending Enabled. Paper book will be available June 2012. http://alturl.com/v9ffo

SYNOPSIS:
What if you discovered that your soul mate lived three centuries before you were even born? It’s been years since Madeline and her mama were victims of a car crash. Madeline survived but suffers wicked anxiety. Her mama simply disappeared. At age sixteen she inherits her mama’s handmade book filled with dangerous family secrets, but barely skimmed it before she’s pushed onto train tracks.

Madeline wakes in 1675, the sole survivor of a Native massacre on a colonial settlement. She has inadvertently time traveled to the War between the Wampanoag Natives and the colonists they recently welcomed to America’s shores. Rescued and taken back to a colonial garrison, Madeline learns she is a Messenger, a traveler who can slip through time’s fabric at will, bringing messages that could change one life or many. But she doesn’t know the first thing about traveling let alone surviving this harsh new world. Rumors of witchcraft and spying could get her killed. And falling into a forbidden love with Samuel, a mixed blood boy, puts them both at risk.

The only way Madeline can get home and save both their lives is to train with Samuel and the Medicine Woman, confront her deepest fears and fulfill her destiny as a Messenger. But the Hunters, dark-souled predators as well as skilled time travelers, are closing in—and they will kill her if she doesn’t join them. Madeline learns that falling in love, and falling through time doesn’t have to be accidental, could be deadly, but is worth the fight of her life.

SNEAK PEEK:

I stopped for a few seconds to catch my breath. The droning had grown louder. Good. I was closer to that place where desire, action, a little bit of luck and magic would join forces. I’d find that moment to slip through time’s fabric, travel hundreds of years back to present day and warn or even save people. Especially my Samuel.

Then I heard his voice, muffled, but close by. And his words chilled my soul. “Stop running, Messenger,” he said. “You cannot save him or yourself. You cannot save anybody.”
