A Teaser for Nicole Valentine's debut novel, A TIME TRAVELER'S THEORY OF RELATIVITY, Coming in October 2019

Hi everyone! I won't be around for the next two months. I'm having brain surgery this week.

Yes, you read that right.

My third aneurysm, which is unruptured, will be repaired so it can't rupture as the first two did. I'm confident that I'll be in good hands. The recuperation period should be about a month, but I'm taking some time after that to get back to doing normal things again.

Like reading and writing!

I'll be back in July with an interview with a young woman I'm proud to call my friend, debut author, Nicole Valentine, whose MG sci fi novel, A Time Traveler's Theory of Relativity pubs October 1, 2019, from Carolrhoda Books/Lerner. It's garnering plenty of praise already --  and it's a Junior Library Guild selection! Congratulations, Nicole!

Here's a teaser (i.e., the official description):

Twelve-year-old Finn is used to people in his family disappearing. His twin sister, Faith, drowned when they were three years old. A few months ago, his mom abandoned him and his dad with no explanation. He clings to the concrete facts in his physics books and to his best friend, Gabi, to cope with his sadness. But when his grandmother tells him the family secret: that all the women in their family are Travelers, he realizes he has to put his trust in something bigger than logic to save his Mom.


I'll see you on the other side.
