Description
Whether he’s fleeing Spartan soldiers in Ancient Greece with a young Aristotle, hang-gliding with Leonardo da Vinci while avoiding Machiavelli’s goon squad or saving Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams from the clutches of Jack the Ripper in turn of the century London, Chase Axelrod just can’t seem to find the portal that leads him to his most wanted destination: home. Chase stumbled upon a time portal in the basement of his Grandpa's farmhouse and it whisked him on a journey of action and discovery. What began as a random leap through time, developed into an adventure with purpose. He goes from a shy boy into a confident young man; his fears were stunting his growth. As his Grandpa Wally told him, “When you let fear dictate the terms, you’ll always lose that negotiation. When you attack fear, it doesn’t seem so scary.”
About the author
World traveler? Yes. Time traveler? Jeff Vaala’s not telling. But it may seem like it as one reads the pages of Chase Through Time. A lover of history and spinning a good tale, he’s happiest when the laptop is popped open and the keyboard is humming. His first novel, Past Due, was geared toward adults. Chase, however, brings him back to an age when he fell deep in love with reading. From the days of reading the exploits of Encyclopedia Brown, Huckleberry Finn or Holden Caufield, Vaala’s love of reading led to a life of writing. Born and raised in the state of Minnesota and having two awesome grandfathers, it’s no wonder where the inspiration for Chase and his adventure began. He hopes you enjoy the action and the adventure because he has had nothing but fun creating this novel.
