TWINTER FRONT COVER AUGUST 15 2016THE BEDE TRILOGY

BEDE HALL IS ALIVE, BUT ALL IS NOT WELL

– a MIDDLE-GRADE TIME-SLIP ADVENTURE

Venture into Bede, and welcome. But remember… once through the portal, you may have to stay!

A disgruntled stately home convinces a pair of telepathic twins to save it from being sold to unscrupulous developers in order to fulfill an ancient prophecy, rescue its resident ghost, and save the planet.

Twelve-year-old twins, Kit (a keen boy-scientist) and Bash (a girl with a natural ‘green thumb’ and a flair for elaborate words) are excited to be moving from a noisy city to Bede Hall, their eccentric grandmother’s crumbling stately home, set in the sleepy English countryside.

With all that’s gone horribly wrong for a year, moving to a grand old mansion promises an adventure of endless exploration and freedom. Bash can create the garden of her dreams and Kit has an abandoned space to set up his own laboratory.

Instead, they stumble upon a portal to the future with three disturbing secrets, begin to untangle the supernatural history of Bede – a village as bizarre as their grandmother’s magic snow globe, and meet some unexpected life-forms who appear to be as haunted as the ghost of Bede Hall – a hapless young girl trapped in the attic’s ‘wintry room’.

In order to save the planet, the twins must navigate a maze of time portals to unravel an age-old mystery. The answers lie in Ancient Egypt, but only time will surrender its hidden knowledge, and according to their grandmother’s old hourglass, time is running out.

AI = AUTISTIC INTELLIGENCE… ‘STATE OF THE ART’ TIME TRAVEL JUST BECAME TRANSCENDENTAL

*book two of two

 

A woman savant must experience her next life as a time-traveler to recover the missing paintings of Leonardo da Vinci and reunite with her lost love  

Delphi Sharpe’s flashbacks of fifteenth-century Florence are as real as the harsh institutions where she grew up, diagnosed as an autistic savant. After being liberated by a ruthless art collector, due to her psychic ability to speak with paintings, she lives in two worlds: an alternate reality where renaissance paintings communicate with her through mental telepathy, and the real world where she works authenticating and restoring paintings.

When Delphi meets her next incarnation, time-traveler Cherry White, after an untimely near-death experience, she’s been ‘nearly’ dead for fifty-two years. Now, Delphi exists between worlds, forced to watch the life she should have had unfold, including her romance with a young man she met in a five-hundred year-old painting.

Reincarnated, reinvented, and unfinished, two ‘art-whisperers’ must struggle against their conflicting goals to mine the distant past for sentient paintings willing to divulge their secrets to discover their shared lost identity and answer the question, will it take two lives to make one woman?
