Editorial Reviews


Rice tells a stunning story of emotional growth, love, longing, regret, and mistakes in this first installment in her time travel romance series. - BooksCoffee
Romance, drama, time travel, and mystery combine in this sensual and compelling tale of 62-year-old Susan, who is sent back in time to meet the teenage crush she has dreamt of for fifty years after meeting a mystic on a cruise. When Susan heads back to 1962, she soon discovers her long-lost love but soon learns that fifty years of imagination and the actual reality of her new paramour might not quite match up. The mixture of Susan's 17-year-old passion with the wisdom and cynicism of a 62-year-old makes for an incredibly compelling lead character, and this is a wonderfully wistful and interesting twist on a time-travel romance. As Susan attempts to answer the "What's If" that has plagued her throughout her adult life, she learns some valuable lessons, experiences love and heartbreak, and emerges with a new sense of herself. This is a wonderfully entertaining fantasy romance coupled with interesting, well-drawn characters and unexpected twists and turns. A fantastic read which is charmingly and confidently told. - Review by Book Excellence (

As a child, I was mesmerized by story tellers and my mother always made sure I had a supply of books close at hand while I was growing up. Sitting on her lap and listening to her read to me is one of my earliest memories. I remember drawing pictures and then making up stories to go with them, and as I got older, my stories became longer and more fanciful. At age ten, I began to write them down, and when I was twelve, I wrote my first "book," all handwritten. I wrote during rainy days in gym class when we all had to stay in the locker room and sit on benches. I had a small cult following of friends who waited for me to finish each page which I would then pass down the row. When I got a typewriter for my thirteenth birthday, I typed up my "masterpiece" and put it in a 3-ring binder then hid it away. The story was actually quite silly. Having a typewriter, however, made it possible for me to write even more, which I did on almost a daily basis.

But, as happens to many young, aspiring writers, reality grabbed me and when I graduated from high school and headed to college then into the work force, the dream of becoming an author washed away. It wasn't until I turned 62 and experienced my 3rd job layoff, that I decided to try and make my writing dream come true.

Writing has become an addiction to me, and I'm finding that ideas for other scenarios and characters keep flooding my brain, with the characters screaming, "Write about me! Write about me!"

And, that's what I intend to do.
