Between Worlds

2 Teens | 2 Continents | 2 Centuries | 1 Family

Two teenage girls are connected across history by a book that says more than words can say and the fading memory of a man who can no longer say enough.

A move across the country is just unfair: Juliana’s in the middle of grade 9, it’s Christmas, and she has to leave all her friends behind. That means she’ll no longer see her dance team or her best friend, Rachel.

What Juliana doesn’t expect is a discovery that’s almost 100 years old: One night, when she tries to escape her new world, she finds an old book of drawings buried under the dust and bug carcasses in her grandfather’s basement.

The book leads Juliana into the world of Elisabeth, her great-grandmother, when she was 14, after WWI, in Eastern Europe. Unfortunately, the only connection between Juliana, the book, and Elisabeth is her grandfather, whose memories are disappearing under the veil of dementia with each passing day.

In each book, you’ll follow both Juliana and Elisabeth as they try and sort out what the world expects of them, and what they expect of the world. And who knows? You may find that teen life hasn’t changed all that much in 100 years.

The Between Worlds series is available in paperback, large print, and ebook formats and can be ordered at most major book retailers, independent book stores, and through the author directly.

Between Worlds 1: The Move

Juliana’s 14, a competitive dancer and successful student, must move across the country at Christmas with her parents to live with her grandfather. Unknown to her, this move she doesn’t want opens up her past through an old book of drawings created by her great-grandmother, when she was 14, back in 1920 Romania.
