No.2 - Seemed like a good scheme at the time ...


And somewhere else, also probably in mid 19th century England ...

"I don't think trying to invent a time machine was such a good idea after all, Andy! Something's gone wrong with the transfer mechanism. Look at me!"

"Don't panic, Teena, it's probably those parts I took from the X-ray department at the hospital."

"Well, if you don't sort it out pretty damned quick, you'll be needing that X-ray department a lot quicker than you thought!"

"Easy, Teen, that tough act may fool other people, but I can see right through you, har-har!"

"Oh, very funny Andy - I don't think! Now get your brains out of your balls and do something!"

"Andy, if I didn't know you better, I'd swear you were just trying to get back at me!"

"I've heard of quick change acts, but this really is ridiculous!"

The first book in the Teena Thyme series, simply entitled Teena, is available from July 2001, from most good book stores in both the United Kingdom and the USA. Most Jennifer Jane Pope titles are also available on the Internet, either from, or from .

Teena becomes a time traveller quite by accident in 1975 and finds herself popping up as her own ancestors in a variety of eras and predicaments and her natural resilience, inventiveness and ability to see the funny side of just about any situation are frequently pushed to their limits.

History was never like this at school, so if you want to meet Teena and read the opening chapters of her story for free, visit my website at and click on the BOOKS section, where you will find a long extract, as well as extracts from all my other published novels.

Alternatively, if you go to the Stories listing in this site, you will find several more of my literary offerings. More Teena inspired images coming to these pages soon.
