BetsyStreeter400Betsy Streeter grew up on a steady diet of Star Trek, The Muppet Show, Atari, and musical rehearsals in her family's living room. Her habits of making up stories and drawing and painting on everything within reach eventually led to degrees in art and communication from Stanford University. She has worked in film and video production, design, and video games, and is president of a community theatre. She and her family are voracious consumers of books, music, movies, art, action figures, and musical instruments, resulting in inadequate storage space. Betsy has published single-panel cartoons, comics, art, and short fiction in paper, digital, graffiti, and tattoo form. She lives in Northern California with her husband, son, daughter, two peculiar and disruptive cats, and a mellow but hungry tarantula.

Monder is a Tromindox so dangerous he was banished to a labyrinth that exists out of time. The portal that sent him there has been severed in two, never to be made whole or used again. But when Monder gains possession of one of the halves, Helen Silverwood’s world is turned upside down. Helen is forced to make an impossible choice: surrender to Monder her 10-year-old brother Henry—and his ability to draw the unseen—or watch her brother die.

Consumed by guilt, Helen becomes entangled in an ancient vendetta that could lead to the extinction of the Silverwoods. To bring her brother home and save her family, Helen will need all of her talents as a hacker, the support of her time-traveling clan, and a long lost relic: the Silver Shard.

A story of finding where you belong, even if it involves time travel, shape shifting, and hacking.

Helen Silverwood, fourteen, is sick of life on the run with her mom and her younger brother. Nothing makes sense. She doesn’t understand why she has recurring dreams of shape-shifting creatures, why her mother is always disappearing, and how her brother can draw things that haven’t happened yet.

Most of all, Helen longs to know what happened to her dad—is he imprisoned, a fugitive, or gone forever?

When someone blows up the apartment where Helen lives, the stories of the ancient Silverwood clan—and her role in it—begin to unravel. All Helen wants is to feel like there’s someplace she belongs—but getting there will prove very, very complicated.
