HE MAJORED IN SCIENCE AND MINORED IN UNREALIZED DREAMS


High school teacher Jack Riggs is having a streak of bad luck. In a matter of hours he is: * Arrested as a terrorist * Thrown in jail * Breaking up with his psycho girlfriend * And flung a century and a half into the past.

A TIME TRAVEL RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK


It's 157 years ago in Norfolk, Virginia and Jack has no money, a nearly dead iPhone in his pocket, and no idea how he got there. He must assimilate if he's to have any hope of getting back. Tormented, he tells his tale to Frances Sanger, a woman with trust issues who nonetheless trusts Jack to stop a war that's been brewing for over a hundred years. He alone holds the key to saving nearly a million people, and he's got to do it in three and a half years.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT THE CIVIL WAR FOUGHT


Abner Adkins, lawyer and cheating ex-husband of Frances, represents a group of ruthless Southern terrorists that who will kill anyone who tries to keep the peace--and concerning Jack, it's personal. The Southern economy is invested in the slave trade and some 2013 ideas could wreak havoc.

HELP FROM YOUNG SAMUEL CLEMENS AND RALPH WALDO EMERSON


Can Jack invent this country out of its bloodiest war ever while trying to stay one step ahead of those who want him dead? Jack, with the help of a cast of historical superstars, come up with a plan that can stop the war before it starts. Corporate spies and suicide bombers threaten to ruin it all. Even with a real life guardian angel can Jack and his ideas survive?

EVERY CHANGE RIPPLES INTO THE FUTURE


Time Change Book One: The Jump jumps back to 1856 and an America on the verge of war . . . and discovery. "I like my coffee strong, my physics quantum, and I'm a firm believer in the theory of relativity." ~Jack Riggs, Inventor 1856

About the Author:

Biography All I ever wanted to do was write books and be on the radio, so naturally I went to college to study advertising. Four years later I find myself doing marketing for a "Chuck E Cheese want-to-be" restaurant chain. I was living in my hometown (Flint, Michigan), working eighteen hours a day, making great money and feeling like I sold my soul to the devil (or in this case, a giant kangaroo that looked exactly like Chuck E. Cheese). Fall was in the air and so was change, so I quit my high-paying job to make $90 every two weeks working four hours a day, Monday through Friday on a radio station in Cadillac Michigan. Only making $45 a week and only working twenty hours I had to keep busy cheaply. I did the only other thing I ever wanted to do in my whole life and that was to write. I wrote romances and detective stories while in high school and sent them to pulpy magazines. After 30 rejection slips, I switched to writing novels and wrote them for only me. That is until I met my wife, who read them, loved them, and said let's share them with the world and make ten million dollars. Fast forward to now, I'm still at it years later, still on the radio, still writing, still sharing and still working on those millions. I live in the coolest city in Texas, Austin, the home of Willie Nelson, Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock and a serious bunch of hipsters. I play tennis four days a week and work everyday on ways to become a better writer. I am married and live with two kids, three fish, a lizard and two white miniature schnauzers named Max and Samsung. I have been published on Twitter (Alex_Austin)and my work often appears in Facebook (http://bit.ly/AlexvoxFB). You can learn a tiny bit more about me on my always needs an update blog at Alexvox.com.
