The carthage chronicles


 twenty-first-century doctor.

 third-century plague.

 love out of time.

When disgraced 21st century physician Dr. Lisbeth Hastings falls into 3rd century Carthage, she can't believe her misfortune. How had she landed in the middle of a pandemic? While Lisbeth desperately searches for a way home, deteriorating conditions force her to resurrect her medical skills and link arms with Cyprianus Thascius, the charismatic Roman noble trying his best to keep a small rebel group together in the midst of rising chaos.

But Lisbeth does not want to be anyone's healer.

And she never meant to fall in love.

If Lisbeth is going to save Cyprian from a martyr's fate, she must find a way to bridge the 1800 years that separates them without rewriting history.

I dare you to take this leap into the past.

But be warned.

You will never be the same.

If you could visit another time and place, where would you go?

I grew up on a Kansas dairy farm. Our cows didn’t travel. So neither did we.

I longed for adventure. I wanted to visit exotic places and meet famous people. Imaginary trips became my escape from rural isolation.

In an instant, my mind could magically transform a tree house into a medieval castle, hay bales into a pioneer fort, or a dank root cellar into a time portal that could transport me into ancient civilizations.

In my make-believe world, I was bold, brave, and beautiful. The heroes were handsome and romantic. Humanity’s fate hung in the balance. Good always triumphed over evil. And in the end, I left the past in far better shape than I found it.

Outlandish journeys still feed my creative soul. I love to explore Roman baths or traipse through old English castles. My mind goes crazy imagining myself living in a different world.

The stories I write launch modern women into ancient adventures. If you long to step away from the ordinary, open my books, and come away with me.
