IT BECAME NECESSARY TO DESTROY HISTORY IN ORDER TO SAVE IT...
The born-again religious, recovering alcoholic, not-too-bright U.S. President Prescott Walker is desperate. He fears he will end his presidency as a failure, and needs a miracle to turn things around...
Then he learns that the military has secretly developed the world's first time machine.
His Vice President, the sinister and secretive Zack Cutter, convinces Prescott to seize the time machine and "set history straight" -- all he has to do is go back in time and make a few small alterations, and all the problems of the present will go away!
That's the plan, anyway. But even the smallest alterations of the past can have unforeseen consequences... especially when you're as clumsy as Prescott Walker. His greatest misadventure is about to begin...

I'm a Swedish writer & illustrator - author of the published book series TERRA HEXA (in Swedish, from publisher Wela), several short stories, comic-strips, and the NRK radio series "Magiens Arv" ("Heirs to the Magic", 2009).
I write in English and Swedish. My short fiction has been published in Sweden, England and China.
My goal is to become one of the most influential writers of the 21st century - or the next one.
