Meet eleven-year-old Hephzibah, an ordinary girl with an extraordinary secret.
She’s been plagued by mysterious dreams that feel so real, it’s as if she’s a part of them.
…Little does she know that these dreams hold the key to an adventure beyond her wildest imagination!
As summer break begins, Hephzibah’s world takes an unexpected turn. In a daring trade involving her treasured friendship bracelet, she acquires an antique clock that catapults her into an entirely different reality.
Now, Hephzibah finds herself in a strange future world, surrounded by other children at the World Intelligence Academy. Together, they must unlock their unique abilities to confront a world teetering on the brink of chaos. But to truly master her newfound gift, Hephzibah must embark on an inner journey and discover the true meaning of friendship.
With time ticking away, Hephzibah must not only learn to cooperate with her new companions but also unravel the purpose behind her presence in this otherworldly place.

Could she hold the key to saving a world on the brink of extinction? Does this strange world share a connection with her own world back home? And can she unlock her true potential in time to rescue not only another world but her own from a dire fate?
According to the young British novelist, on her official website, she began writing only two-years-ago at the suggestion of her mother.
“I was just 8, on the 2nd of December 2021. Mum nudged me and said, ‘Hey, you could totally make this into a book!’” Hephzibah said. She continued, “Guess what? I did. So I guess Mum does know best.”
When she is not writing, Hephzibah continues to make life “one big adventure,” as she bounces around from gymnastics, to swim class, and much more.
“Chronicles of The Time Keepers: Whisked Away” unquestionably sounds like an amazing read for those who fashion themselves adventurers as well. This just might be the perfect gift for any avid reader in your household for the holidays. The soon-to-be timeless classic is available digitally here, and of course on both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
Hephzibah, we are already waiting on book number two!
