Nathan Van Coops lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, on a diet comprised mainly of tacos. He enjoys old planes, motorcycles, and Volkswagens; and contends that there is such a thing as “dressy” flip-flops. He is the author of three time travel adventure novels: In Times Like These, The Chronothon, and The Day After Never.” Nathan also teaches writing and publishing classes with Keep St. Pete Lit.

Nathan has had a career in aviation for nearly 20 years. While it keeps him pretty busy, he's always working on the next book. If you keep reading, he'll keep writing.



Beneath the Ocean of Sky, heroes will rise.

Samra Rose is in trouble. Living in a colony floating high above the clouds, she’s been far away from anything resembling an adventure, but when aerial raiders carry off her home—with her inside—she gets more excitement than she ever wished for. Her best friend, Kipling, and a Grounder boy with a skyship will take to the air in pursuit, but all three will face dangers they’ve never imagined. The aerial ocean is a turbulent place full of deadly creatures and cutthroat pirates. If they hope to survive, they’ll need to fight for their place in the Heights and confront those who have already claimed it.

Follow the adventures of three unlikely heroes as they abandon the safety of home to seek a destiny aloft in the clouds.

Fans of grand science fiction universes, steampunk airships, and daring pirate adventures will discover a thrilling new world of action, villainy, and friendship.

Make the leap into the sky today! Find out if you have what it takes to soar...


They have a dangerous past. They just haven't lived it yet.


“We broke something. How do you break time? Can something so bad happen that you fracture the world?”

Benjamin Travers has been electrocuted. What’s worse, he and his friends have woken up in the past. As the friends search for a way home, they realize they’re not alone. There are other time travelers, and some of them are turning up dead.

When Ben meets an enigmatic scientist and his charming, time-traveling daughter, salvation seems at hand, but escaping the dangers of the past may lead to a deadly future.

If he hopes to save his friends, Ben must learn to master space and time, and survive a journey where past and future violently collide.

Action and romance heat up in this first book of the time travel adventure series. Reader Reviews are in. This novel is:

“Best time travel novel I have read.” C. PARSONS

“Truly fabulous and fresh.” –Giles Swatos

“If you like time travel this book is a must-read. It is one of the best, if not the best science fiction time travel I have read so far.”-E.V.


Run from the past. Run from the future. Run for your lives.


He’s a novice time traveler in a big universe.

Ben just wants time with the scientist’s daughter who got him into this, but when he’s rooked into competing in a chronothon–an Amazing Race through time–getting the girl means he’ll need to make the finish line. When he finds out this competition is more than just a sprint through history, winning takes a back seat to surviving. To save the people he loves, he’ll have to conquer the real dangers hidden in the shadows of the chronothon.

The world of time travelers expands in this next installment of the “In Times Like These” series. Fans of book one will find more to love, but new readers can jump right in and enjoy this stand-alone story. Expect action, adventure, and romance on this journey through past and future. Fresh dangers will arise for Ben and company in a quest for the finish line, where failure to keep up will cost more than just a shot at glory—it could mean the end for them all.


Ben Travers is missing. And Ben Travers needs to find him.


Returning home from his harrowing adventures through time, Ben just wants a normal life with the girl he loves, but tying up the loose threads of his fragmented existence is proving more difficult than he ever suspected. Someone is attacking time travel labs—threatening the safety of the Quickly family—and Ben is getting messages from a version of himself that he thought was dead.

When a strange cult of consciousness-shifting time travelers called The Eternals begins to worm its way into the past—endangering the very nature of time and space—Ben will have to solve the mystery of his own disappearance to stop them. He’ll journey farther into time than he’s ever been before, to protect the family and friends he has come to love, and to discover his own inevitable destiny.

Join Ben and Mym in this third novel in the In Times Like These time travel adventure series.

Either of the first two books in the series may be enjoyed independently, but this book is best enjoyed as the 3rd in the series.
