Hear Annette Oppenlander Read ‘Escape From the Past’

Fifteen-year old gamer Max Anderson is playing the ultimate history game - one that shoots him into the actual past: anywhere and anytime. Survival is optional!

Always in search of amazing history.

When fifteen-year old nerd and gamer Max Anderson thinks he’s sneaking a preview of an unpublished video game, he doesn’t realize that 1) He’s been secretly chosen as a beta, an experimental test player. 2) He’s playing the ultimate history game, transporting him into the actual past: anywhere and anytime. And 3) Survival is optional: To return home he must decipher the game’s rules and complete its missions—if he lives long enough. To fail means to stay in the past—forever.

Annette Oppenlander writes historical fiction for young adults and anyone who loves stories set in the past. When she isn’t in front of her computer, she shares her knowledge through writing workshops and travels around the U.S. and Europe to discover amazing histories.

Annette is a guest on the October 8, 2016 episode of Cafe Indiana, “What Happens After ‘The End.'”

Here she reads from the first book in her YA time-travel trilogy, “Escape from the Past.”
