“. . . strong religious themes, such as the strength of family, the stories of sin and redemption, the search for truth, and the power of love to change us. These values are woven into adventures that are tapestries of individuals and personal tales, crossing over space and time, linking worlds together.” — Kathleen McCafferty, Ordained Minister, United Methodist Church

“M.F. Erler skillfully pioneers a new genre, mixing elements of time travel and modern Christian spirituality. She uses relatable characters in well-crafted settings, so we can better identify with their real-life struggles.” — Richard Bartlett, MA, Ph.D.

“. . . a beautifully told historical fiction novel . . . Exciting dialog and detailed descriptive scenes made me feel like I was transported in time and found myself engaged on all levels. Good read!” —Mary Schmidt, Retired English Teacher

Why can’t we have more books like this one? I commend M.F. Erler for her imaginative work.” —Danien Neal Allen

“It is unusual to find science fiction with Christian values. . . .BRAVO!” — Rebecca Sturdevant

M.F. Erler has been writing most of her life. In fact, some of the characters in The Peaks Saga were initially conceived in her youth. Her lifelong goal has been to bring Christian ideas into fantasy-fiction, in the spirit of writers like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Now that she has published “The Peaks Saga: The Peaks at the Edge of the World”, she is embarking on a new venture in historical fiction, where her modern-day characters time-travel back into the lives of their ancestors. So in the future, watch for more tales in “Journeys Beyond the Peaks.” Along with fantasy, true science, and science fiction, she is also a student of history, comparative religion, ecology, and music. Previous publications include non-fiction articles in Today’s Christian Parent, and Social Studies and the Young Learner. In addition, she has produced Music in God’s World, a music curriculum for Christian preschools, and Christian Environmental Education Curricula for use in schools and camp settings. Her hobbies include reading, singing, and playing several musical instruments. She and her husband have two adult children. All make their home in the Pacific Northwest.
