Second Lieutenant Beatrix "Bee" Tanaka had no idea just how weird things were about to get when she set out to save mankind from extinction, but weirdness is a price you pay when you hop around in time. She did not foresee being marooned thousands of miles away from her mission's target, only to find a shaman's son waiting for her - nearly five-hundred years in the past. She didn't expect there might be cannibals admiring her ass... and thinking of possible marinades. And how could she have known she would become friends with a hat? It was ironic that, even with her paranormal powers, all Bee could foretell was her own impending death. Again, and again, and again. Bee is an ordinary woman with extraordinary abilities who, in a race against time, must travel back nearly five centuries to retrieve the cure for her dying world. Set against the lush, tropical backdrop of a primitive Brazilian jungle, our beautiful, blond heroine encounters an oddly eclectic tribe of natives with secrets both dark and surprising. Once she learns their mysteries, she realizes that though she had not arrived at her intended destination, she was exactly where she was destined to be. With exciting twists at every turn, this story will keep you riveted while supplying plenty of laughs to remember it by.

About the author (2010)

M. D. Fann is a Florida native, but he spends most of his days in his own, little world - only coming out occasionally to gather the essentials to sustain the life of a writer: pizza, coffee and cigarettes. He is also quite fond of crossword puzzles, chocolate, Canadian whiskey and the color bleen - a word he coined to describe the blue-green hue most people call teal, which is named after a duck of the same shade. He has nothing against ducks, he just likes saying the word bleen. It seems Mr. Fann should cut back on the whiskey.
