BRENDA HELLER is a retired school teacher who spends time with two daughters, their spouses, and five grandchildren, as well as gardening. At age six, she wrote her first book for her friend, but it wasn’t until college that she published her first work. She and her husband have spent most of their married life in Kansas where they cherish the sunsets across their country fields. Her hobbies include 4-wheeling, hiking, camping, water and snow skiing, and traveling. Her thirty-four years in high school and college classrooms fulfilled her passion for working with teens and encouraged her love for storytelling. When she is not writing, she looks for opportunities to volunteer. For Brenda, a great day ends by in the satisfaction that being busy brings, and she’s ready to weave more storytelling into her dreams.
Seventeen year old Jacob is caught up in a teenage world of skateboarding, technology, and HoloGames until his father’s scientific research of time travel becomes a murderous plot. Fighting for the life of his father and for his own life, Jacob and his robotic dog, Murphy, get time warped over 100 years earlier to Nazi Germany. The horror of a concentration camp catapults him forward into a land where he doesn’t know the language, and the lessons from his high school classroom have been forgotten. When history is threatened to be rewritten, Jacob joins with underground societies and 16 year old Gracie, a street urchin whose family has fallen victim to the Third Reich. The teens and robotic dog begin a trek against the evil of Hitler’s regime. Dark alleys, tunnels, and creatures of repulsion force the teens into a dangerous and physically challenging fight to save both past and future.
