Genre: Teen & Young Adult Time Travel Fantasy


With the passing of her grandmother, and the inheritance of an antique holiday postcard collection, fourteen-year-old Rebecca Renford discovers she is a Time Corrector. Guided by interdimensional overseers and aided by a handsome, humanized computer historian (called a Continuant), with the selection of each vintage postcard from her album, Rebecca must travel back in time to help rewrite historical wrongs. 

The BookViral Review:

A full-on time travel adventure, Bruce spins his Young Adult Time Travel Fantasy yarn in truly engaging prose. His plot thrilling, imaginative and wholly convincing in its execution with plenty of unexpected twists and turns along the way.

It’s a riveting tale from start to finish and Bruce has penned a dramatic narrative that whips along at a cracking pace, as he enviably conjures a host of inspired characters. A delightful mix that ably manifests the age-old duel between good and evil, as his young Time Corrector Rebecca Renford sets about her quest.

The theme of time travel is frequently used and abused in novels and more often than not leaves the reader less enlightened than intended, but Bruce comfortably avoids trite paradoxes to deliver something refreshingly original.

Brimming with inventiveness Bruce has a natural flair that lends itself well to this popular genre, with a charmingly errant turn of phrase that adds uncommon warmth and depth to his writing. His period backdrops are well-conceived and there is an economy to his prose which keeps them light yet encourages the imagination to find full form as he weaves a delightful web of intrigue.

A rip-roaring romp through the annals of time, Timestamped (Postmarked Yesteryear) will likely win a horde of enthusiastic followers for Bruce’s YA Fantasy series and is highly recommended!
