A New Time Travel Book from Debut Author Dr. Michael Arthur Kennedy
Embark on a Journey through Time with Time Conjurer
A Time Travel Novel You Won’t Be Able to Put Down
What happens when you combine time travel with hoodoo and history?
Kenny Lawson is a repressed psychiatrist in 2019 Philadelphia who has recurring dreams of a happy little girl. His latest dream, however, indicates the death of a family member. He learns that the girl reaching out to him is an aunt (Delilah) who disappeared in 1955. The aunt’s sister, his grandmother, teaches him a method of Hoodoo-based time travel so he can visit the past. When his grandmother is attacked by the woman responsible for Delilah’s disappearance, they must go back to 1955 Charleston.
Kenny and his grandmother navigate the Jim Crow South to prevent their evil visitor from finding her way to 2019 and to find Delilah, who is lost in a time labyrinth. Unfortunately, changing the past creates new terrors that ripple through time and jeopardize the reality of 2019. Kenny must embrace Hoodoo’s deeper traditions to save the people and the world he knows.
Meet the Author
Dr. Michael ARTHUR Kennedy
Michael earned a BA in Sociology from Harvard University in 1981. He completed his medical school training at The University of Illinois in Chicago in 1987. After an internship year at Cook County Hospital, he moved on to the Centers for Disease Control and completed Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) training and a Preventive Medicine residency. He then earned a Masters in Public Health from The Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health. In 1993, he finished his training at Johns Hopkins with a fellowship in Occupational Medicine.
Dr. Kennedy has practiced Occupational Medicine in Delaware, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. He is board certified in Occupational Medicine.
Michael has always loved a well told story that stretches his imagination. From “Their Eyes Were Watching God” to “Parable of the Sower”, and from “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” to “Pan’s Labyrinth”, he marvels at human existence at the boundaries of possibility, and seeks to bring this magic into his own writing. He began writing poetry in the third grade and continued throughout college, medical school, and beyond. During his undergraduate and post-college years, he published student magazines.
Dr. Kennedy was inspired to write his debut time travel novel, “Time Conjurer”, after he became the family historian and amassed photographs and written histories dating back to 1815. These collections sparked genealogical trips to Barbados and Charleston. Wishing he could visit the people and places in the photographs, he conceived an idea of time travel through the surfaces of pictures. His first novel combines this concept with historical events in Charleston and Philadelphia.
Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Michael lives in Delaware, but has maternal roots in South Carolina. Married, and with multiple cats, Michael practices Occupational Medicine in the Philadelphia area. He is a son, brother, husband, father, uncle, and grandfather who enjoys travel, good food, photography, African art, jazz and smiling faces. Born the same year “The Twilight Zone” premiered on television, he can’t foresee retiring. In 2022, he feels he is hitting his stride.
