Coming Soon: A Cli-Fi Novel by Debra Denker

What if Time Travel were real? What if Time Travelers from 300 years in the future told you that there was a chance that you could prevent the catastrophic climate change, plagues, and wars that have shaped your world in 2050 by going back in time to key Pivot Points and ethically altering the outcome of elections that had been manipulated? What if failure would result in the destruction of the biosphere? Would you go?

In post-plague 2050 Britain, palm trees tower over the rice paddies of Stonehenge. Tara MacFarlane, a weary 96-year-old anthropologist originally from Taos, New Mexico, longs only to finish out her life in peaceful Buddhist meditation, and rejoin the great love of her later years, the humanitarian Scottish-Afghan doctor Xander, in a future incarnation. Suddenly one stifling autumn day Tara, her great-granddaughter Leona, and Leona’s boyfriend Janus are faced with a trio of Time Travelers from a future alternate Timeline where humanity and the eco-system survived and thrived.

The fate of humanity and most of Earth’s species falls squarely on the shoulders of Tara, Leona, Janus, and Tara’s small gray cat, Georgie, who shows a surprising aptitude for telepathy. Time is short to reverse catastrophe that will bleed through into the alternate Timeline, and the three mysterious Time Travelers must determine the ideal Pivot Points by reading the Time Code vibrations off the great standing stones of Avebury.  Unexpectedly joined by the brave and wise cat Georgie, the six plunge into the Time Circle of Stonehenge on their mission. Where and when will they go, and will they succeed in restoring the Earth and humanity to balance?

Palm trees at Stonehenge, a world fallen disastrously out of balance. Tara, her cat, and her great-granddaughter struggle to set the earth back in harmony with the help of three mysterious visitors. This romp through past, present, and future will inspire and delight a wide range of readers—fantasy and sci-fi enthusiasts, feline lovers, and any one concerned about the future of this planet. The pace is fast and the stakes are high in this wonderful and diverting novel. Don’t miss this last chance to set the world to rights!
