(1958- ) US author of two Young Adult novels, Black Powder (2005) and The Curse of the Romanovs (2007), both involving Time Travel: the young protagonist of the first, using his teacher's Invention of a Time Machine, travels back to the thirteenth century in order to deter Roger Bacon from inventing gunpowder, and therefore save his twentieth-century friend from being shot; in the second, the hemophiliac heir to the Russian throne uses skills taught him by Rasputin to leap forward to the Near Future New York of 2010, where a cure seems imminent.
