His revisions pit Angela and her fictional followers against a vicious, author-worshipping gang of thugs, double agents, and devastating rewrites.

The Novel World of Angela Crown explores the extremes to which violent crime drives its victims. Whether Angela is fighting for fictional victims or her own sanity, her passion and dedication will long be remembered.
“I’ve always been interested in the past,” Miles said, “I just never thought it was a place I would visit.”
Miles McTavish, normally resident in present-day Dallas, has been singled out for a terrifying task. He must travel back in time to 1928, and across the sea to England. There he must find, “a girl with a gift, a girl born out of her time” and a “secret that was not meant to be” and then return home with them both. Miles must first find the courage to pass through the strange portal in the Vermont woods that will launch him on his strange mission, and then to face down a series of do-or-die crises (including a crisis of confidence). Miles’ quest for the girl and the secret carries him from a great estate in England’s beautiful countryside to London’s jazz-age cabarets, and from terrified boy to heroic young man.
