Fantasy, Historical and Science fiction all combined?

Turning Points – a time travel adventure series featuring dramatic events in history.

Beginning with The Siege of Masadaa girl is sent back 2,000 years in time to the bloody siege between the Roman invaders and the fiercely nationalistic Jewish defenders. Based on the real events of Roman conquest in Ancient Judea, this adventure has been described as both “thrilling and imaginative”.


‘An intriguing fast-paced novel dealing with the concept of war and upheaval both in the present and the past.’ – 5 stars from Readers’ Favourite

Book 2 in Turning Points is Transylvanian Knight; an intense sequel to Masada dealing with the politics and war of fifteenth century Eastern Europe. Our heroine, Gwyn, must convince Vlad the Impaler to start a war, risking her own life and the future of others to do so.


Book 3, To Kill An Emperor, continues the series with excitement and drama as Gwyn ventures back to Ancient Rome to plot the murder of the corrupt tyrant Emperor Domitian. Michelle is sent back to nineteenth century Argentina to rescue a colleague who has been kidnapped by political extremists, but will she be captured herself?
