“Time Travel Team” explores the subject of archaeology through the journeys of spunky heroine Jillian Spencer and her companion and mentor Mezradine Bakri as they travel the globe and back in time. They are faced with the dilemma of returning to the present as well solving the mystery of Jill’s dad’s disappearance. “The Fields of Yaru” takes place in Egypt. Within the dark labyrinth of an archaeological dig in the desert, Jill and Mez open a sarcophagus. They are disappointed to find it was looted in ancient times and only contains a few artifacts. One of them sends Jill on a journey back in time where she witnesses Ancient Egyptian rituals. In the upcoming second ebook, Jill travels to New Mexico to continue her exciting adventures in “The Bat Cave.” The discovery of a piece of prehistoric pottery sends Jill and Mez on another journey back to the past.
