Would you like to find books that your kids can’t put down?

Do you wish your son or daughter would read more?

You need to check out my Guardians of Time series, award-winning time-travel fantasy suitable for kids as young as 8. Written from a Christian worldview, exploring history and geography, with black-and-white illustrations.

About the short story, The Grandfather Clock: “This is a “fantastic” time travel book for children eight years old and up! Actually, I was quite on the edge of my seat, from beginning to end! It is a quick, delightful, and entertaining read that stimulates imagination and interest in the past. 5 stars!”– Janet Ashmore

In the meantime, on my blog I review middle-grade books, looking for those family-friendly gems that can be so hard to find.

Phyllis Wheeler, Author

Phyllis Wheeler set a goal at age 13 to write a children’s book. But it didn’t happen quickly! Life threw in lots of delays.

She’s written for daily newspapers, worked on airplanes as a mechanical engineer, worked as a publisher and editor, and raised four children, doing some homeschooling along the way.

Now, finally, she’s writing award-winning time-travel fantasy tales for kids and teens.
