Time Wheel

Middle Grade fiction

with fantasy elements

Tommy Delo 11 ¾, vertically challenged, fatherless boy, and reluctant student, enters as a new sixth grader at Hope School. There were too many changes to count. But after a rocky start at his new school, luck shined upon him.


Mom purchased Bell’s Treasure Trove, a curio shop where he soon discovers a mysterious prayer wheel with unusual properties.

 His strange connection with the artifact commences with a buzzing sound, flickering lights, and soft whispers. He dreams of strange places he's never been and soon realizes why.

The artifact sends him back in time.

 The connection to the artifact grows stronger as he nears his twelfth birthday.

Join in on his adventure as he navigates a difficult and exciting start of adolescence.  Click the links below.

This book is suitable for grade 5-8 and I'd love to do a school visit via Zoom to share a chapter or to talk to kids about writing!
