About me

T.W. Fendley is an award-winning author of historical fantasy and science fiction with a Mesoamerican twist. Her debut novel, ZERO TIME, is a 21st Century Celestine Prophecy that melds ancient Maya history with New Age spirituality and time travel.

Readers chose ZERO TIME as the 2011 Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Novel. It was a finalist for the 2012 Missouri Writers’ Guild Major Works Award, which cited ZERO TIME as “worthy of special recognition because of the research or high literary quality involved in its creation.”

T.W. fell in love with ancient American cultures in 1997 while researching story ideas at the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop. Since then, her studies have included travel to archeological sites in the Yucatan, Peru and American Southwest.

ZERO TIME: As Zero Time nears, only Keihla Benton can save two worlds from the powers of Darkness. But first she must unlock the secrets of Machu Picchu and her own past.
