Rough waters upon a Viking ship. History…Geography…Adventure…Suspense…and more.

Scarlett writes her time-warp novels with a mission to interest readers as she teaches history and geography.

“This book is obviously written by an author who knows the areas she describes, whether it be the structure of a Scottish castle, the harbor of Cairo, or the tomb of King Tut….This is a good book in which young readers can lose themselves for adventure (and some painless and effortless learning and enjoyment).”
