University of Oklahoma Student Releases Science Fiction Novel


NORMAN, Okla. – Mustang High School graduate Laura Wilcox released her first novel, Renegade, for Kindle and Nook on April 1, 2014. This young adult science fiction eBook offers readers a reinvented glimpse of history, radically shaped by a dying race of time travelers.

In this imaginative retelling of American history, time travelers live by three rules. Avoid all interactions, always travel alone and never, under any circumstance, lose your talisman. When 22-year-old time traveler Andrew Simmons loses his talisman in pre-revolutionary Boston, he must race against the clock to retrieve his only way home.

 Everything is on the line – family, love, freedom, honor and even the future. But time reveals a long line of dark secrets that threaten the traveler way of life, and Andrew realizes he must fight to save more than just his life. He must fight to save his kind.When time traveler Andrew Simmons loses his talisman in pre-revolutionary Boston, he must race against the clock to retrieve his only way home.
