College senior Stella Denton has very few prospects and even fewer suitors—i.e. none—when a gunshot wound to the head catapults her from her life in 21st century Minneapolis to Jarmo, a real-life hunter-gatherer society circa 7000 BCE, located in what will become modern-day Iraq. As Stella starts living sequentially in both the past and the present, she finds, much to her surprise, that she thrives far more in the ancient society of Jarmo.

Life in ancient times, though, is not always idyllic and peaceful. An impending war in Jarmo could get her people slaughtered unless she takes immediate action to save herself and her tribe. Yet having something worth fighting for—even dying for—makes Stella feel more alive than she ever has in her mundane modern existence.

During her dual-life journey, Stella draws the interest of Dr. Vale, an unappreciated thirty-something professor of paleoanthropology; charismatic Chieftain Harry of the Jarmo tribe; and young Ashur, a prehistoric teenager in need of lessons in love. When the time comes to make an irrevocable choice between her two lives, will Stella choose down-to-earth reality or the allure of the unknown?

Meet the Author
Jane Susann MacCarter is a Montana-based writer who was once peed upon by 850,000 bats as she (and the bats) simultaneously exited Carlsbad Caverns at dusk via a seldom-used egress. (Later, she swore it felt and smelled like being misted with lemon-scented perfume--really.

Originally from Minnesota, MacCarter came into her own once she moved to New Mexico. There, she hobnobbed with psychic channelers and endangered species biologists, billionaires and game wardens, once cooked pasta with a filmstar, was jumped on by a mountain lion, and finished a half-eaten sandwich that was originally Ted Turner's. She now lives in Montana near Yellowstone National Park.

Author of a nonfiction nature guide and later a self-published novel DREAMER, MacCarter has written a romantic/adventure novel of simultaneous realities, TWICE UPON A KISS, now available from Omnific Publishing, distributed by Simon & Schuster.
