the past outlines a legacy

Tracing Time

Tracing Time is a mystical blend of romance and mystery. Anna Wright finds herself in a position she never imagined possible. After uncovering the secret of her husband's experimentation with time travel, she must decide if she is willing to dive into an unfamiliar world and risk everything she has–even her own life. Will her efforts be enough, or will she lose everything while trying?


Chasing Shadows

the present unearths a mystery

A continuation of the Tracing Time series, Chasing Shadows finds a confused Maggie Wright investigating her parents' disappearance fourteen years earlier. With the help of her new friend, Rowan, and clues from people who had concealed facts for so long, she is determined to unearth the hidden secrets of the past. All the while, David and Anna continue a mission of their own. The plan had always been to reunite their family and return to a time in which their children would never know loss. But is it too late for that dream to become a reality? Will the two couples' paths cross along their journeys to find each other? Both parties desperately hoping for one thing alone: togetherness.

Forging Fate

the future reveals a destiny

Forging Fate is the third and final installment of the Tracing Time trilogy. Anna and Maggie have gone on separate journeys through the exploration of time travel as life has both brought them together and torn them apart. On what began as a quest to right as many wrongs as possible, the passing of time demands that each generation must eventually face what knowing life outside the confines of space and time has unveiled. Will they be able to correct the injustices they see in the world, or will they choose to save themselves and their families? Perhaps it is possible to do both and forge their way into the history of time.

Inspired by a time when the world seemed to stop hugging, author Shelly Snow Pordea took to her love of drawing and storytelling to create a children's tale that will warm any heart. This book of feelings is a delightful story of love for the whole family. Share the joy of knowing that we can express our love in many ways, with whatever tools we are given.


"This book, like the title suggests, feels like a warm embrace-and one we desperately need right now."

Jeff Goins, bestselling author and father


“Love is a universal language and this book reminds us that while we might compare ourselves to others, we are all connected through the energy of love.”

Karen Hoffman, Gateway To Dreams 


"During a time when so many of us feel unable to show love the way we would like to, Shelly Snow Pordea's precious words weave a world where children (and grown-up children, too) are reminded that love comes in all shapes, sizes and forms, and what really matters is that we share it."
