Emlyn Boyd is a writer who is stuck somewhere under the piles of paper and stacks of notebooks that make up her current project.

The Elements of Time (work in progress)

Like it or not, Sam is planning for a future in the past. On her first day at a new school, the headmaster gives Saman Jahandar an ancient book naming her as the author. The headmaster tells Sam she’ll be sent back in time, but no one knows when. Or how. And they certainly don’t know why. The only clues are in her book.

Terrified, Sam starts reading. Her book tells the story of a sorceress – who is trying to revive an apocalyptic power – and a soldier protecting the only person who can stave off the end of the world. Meanwhile, Sam’s classmates keep disappearing and a shadow police force threatens to take over her school. When a missing student turns up dead in her ancient book, Sam begins a frantic mission to decode the past so she can save her friends’ future.
