The Keeper’s Calling - Book 1
Published by Walnut Springs Press, Salt Lake City, UT (February 2012)
They come from two different worlds. One fateful discovery will bring them together. Neither of their lives will ever be the same.
Hillsboro High School student Chase Harper’s to-do list for senior year never included “fall in love” and “fight for your life,” but things rarely go as planned. Tarnished gold and resembling a pocket watch, the counter he finds in a cave during the summer of 2011 will forever change the course of his life, leading him to the beautiful Ellie Williams and unlocking a power beyond his wildest imagination.
In 1863, Ellie Williams completes school in Boston and returns to the Utah Territory only to discover that her grandfather and his counter, a treasured family heirloom, are missing. When Ellie is abducted and told she must produce the counter or die, an unexpected rescuer comes to her aid.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Keeper’s Calling. The storyline is original and full of surprises, and the characters are likeable and empathetic. All in all, a great story. –Charity Heller, The Mighty Pen Editing.

The Keeper’s Quest – Book Two
Published by Walnut Springs Press, Salt Lake City, UT (January 2013)
A tragic death
A fatal trap
A daring quest
“I woke to the flash of counter coordinates and a rush of adrenalin. Suddenly, it hit me. I was a pawn in someone’s game of chess and I’d just been moved. Master Archidus required my services. I was a Keeper—the Protector, to be specific. I hadn’t wanted this, but I wouldn’t shun my duties, either. The other Keeper’s life wasn’t the only one at stake.” ~ Chase Harper
After a turbulent start to his senior year, Chase expects his life to return to normal now that Ellie Williams is back. But when a Sniffer’s trap leads him on a journey spanning two worlds, he soon realizes things aren’t always what they seem. Will his calling as Keeper require a sacrifice he isn’t willing to make?
The second book in The Keeper’s Saga amps up the action, but it is the developing relationship between Chase and Ellie that steals the show. These are heroes worth cheering for! Nelson has written a sequel worthy of its predecessor. J. Lloyd Morgan, Author, The Hidden Sun
A five star read! The Keeper’s Saga is incredibly imaginative, with characters that almost live and breathe. It’s been a long time since a book has kept me up all night, but this one did just that. It caught me so tightly in its grasp I didn’t want to sleep. I’d recommend the series to ANY reader! Karen Hoover, award winning YA fantasy author of The Wolf Child Saga
