About the author:
J. W. Keleher currently lives in a big house in Arusha, Tanzania (in fact, with four bedrooms and five bathrooms, it is far too big for just one person). While avocado season is over, mango season is here-and the trees in his yard let him know such. Mount Meru smiles down upon him beyond his blue front gate.
His favorite early morning Arusha street scenes include: well-dressed women riding side-saddle on the backs of bicycle taxis, endless seas of school children walking to school in uniforms, men pulling enormous loads in heavy-duty wooden carts. One some evenings, especially on the weekends, he hears wedding celebration music coming from too-big bands in the back of too-small pick-up trucks. He supports local Tinga-Tinga artists, but has never bought a map or newspaper from someone on the street. He has gone on a one day safari.
He wonders if he will ever learn Swahili. He continues to be thankful for his bus ride to and from work.
Cliff Huggins in the American Southwest
Cliff Huggins isn't ordinary. This isn't because his mother and his father are both famous archaeologists. Or because of his limping walk, having one leg shorter than the other. Maybe you think it's because he always wears plaid. While all of these are true, what makes Cliff most extraordinary is that he has a gift. Cliff is a Timemind.
While Cliff has many adventures in his own time, he also has adventures in the past. With guidance from Zeb, a Timemind from a possible future, Cliff learns about his gift.
On an archaeological expedition in the American Southwest, Cliff connects with a Puebloan Timemind from the past, a young girl named Blackbird. Here he realizes the importance of friends, and also finds a roadmap for living now, in the past, and in the future.
Dancing Stones: Cliff Huggins in the American Southwest, is the first book in the Cliff Huggins series.
