Time-shifted to the past, three twenty-first century children fight to survive or risk being lost in time forever.

When Maisie Brown is time-shifted to 1471 during a school trip to Warwick Castle, it’s the beginning of an adventure bigger than she could ever have dreamed of. The only problem is she has to share it with Lizzie Andrews, the class bully, instead of her best friend Danny Romano, who has managed to get caught up amongst the Earl of Warwick’s army marching towards the Battle of Barnet.

Determined to save Danny, Maisie and Lizzie leave the safety of the castle and follow after the army. Battling against everything that Medieval England throws at them, the girls find unexpected help from a Lord with a surprising secret, and discover that two mysterious hooded riders are trying to hunt them down. With time fast running out to find Danny they begin to realise that they have the unlikeliest of allies looking out for them.

The chase is on to find a way home before being time-shifted again.

Time Shifters: Into the Past is the first in the exciting Time Shifters series – a time travel adventure for boys and girls.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR

Q. Why should I take a chance on Time Shifters: Into the Past?
A. To get lost in the excitement of time travel just like intrepid time shifters, Maisie, Danny and Lizzie do! It’s a fast paced adventure and survival story with the trio time travelling through history with battles, the Great Fire of London and mysterious hooded riders to contend with.

Q. Who would enjoy the Time Shifters series?
A. Anyone with a sense of adventure who likes middle grade/young teen fantasy adventure stories or historical fiction. It’s perfect for both boys and girls, and although it’s aimed at 9-12 year olds, anyone can get swept up in Maisie, Danny and Lizzie’s adventures. As author Debbie Young said in her review: “A compelling adventure story… I wouldn’t be surprised if it has children clamouring to be taken to Warwick Castle to try to time shift themselves from Maisie’s starting point, just as we’ve all at some time tentatively touched the back of an old wooden wardrobe hoping to find our way into Narnia.”

Q. If you could time shift anywhere, where would you go?
A. There are so many times and places I would want to time travel to! I’d definitely chose to go to the past and love the adventure of Medieval times with its castles, dungeons and battles. Seeing the Great Fire of London would be an epic adventure too – if a little dangerous as Maisie and co. find out! – but it would be fantastic fun to witness history come alive in front of me.

Q. What’s next in the series?
A. The second book is due out towards the end of 2017 and is called Time Shifters: A Long Way From Home.
