D.L. Narrol

Dianne Narrol was born in Toronto, Canada. She grew up relishing in adventure novels, like Clavell’s Shogun, and Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. She always wanted to write an adventure series that would depict the fine work of a classic sci-fi like Wells or Verne, and felt compelled to set her novels in the early 1900s. Little did she know she was setting the stage for a steampunk fantasy sci-fi adventure series. Her books are weighted with interpersonal relationships and untraditional romance. Her witty writing style has been compared to Kurt Vonnegut, says some of her readers. So much humor is threaded throughout her writing, along with earth-shattering action.

In 2011 her stand-alone romantic-fantasy When Beowulf Meets Kyla was released. Written in Kyla’s point of view, where she undergoes a trial of initiation in order to prove her love for her ancient Viking warrior. In 2009 her short story Kate’s Choice was chosen as part of a compilation of stories for The Caledon Collection published by Giant Beaver Press.

She has two degrees in urban social geography – that’s where her vivid physical descriptions come alive; where she has made several journeys around the world, placing her settings and characters.

While trying to play God ~ All else fails!

Captain Limmerick lives a double life, from working class fisherman to prehistoric explorer. He stumbles onto Dr. Dimitrikov’s faulty time-travel device and travels 10,000 years into the past to find how Megaloceros giganteus came to its demise. When the time travel expedition goes bust, he then time-travels again to try and fix the mess he made, but ends up 40,000 years into the past instead where he is faced with the unthinkable. Captain Limmerick proves his bravery but also realizes he is an ill-prepared time-traveler. While all hell breaks loose he is also caught between the-tug-of-war of two aggressive women.
It’s almost 1911. Colin Limmerick, the handsome sea captain, has a problem. He’s stuck with a twenty-eight-thousand-year-old Neanderthal on board his ship. He realizes he must venture into another time-travel quest to bring the ancient beast back to its own time period.

Rosa, the pretty archaeology Ph.D. student, instills to eccentric Russian-scientist, Dr. Sasha Dimitrikov that they need another means of fuelling the time machine. The inventor of time travel has the idea of converging magnetic lines at magnetic true north in the Arctic to fuel the time machine and deliver the Neanderthal back to its time period.

Limmerick, Dimitrikov, Rosa, and the sexy chancellor of the university venture Arctic waters, where they are confronted by an unexpected blast from their future. A Soviet sub from 1970 slips through the time vortex! Just what Colin, Rosa, and Dr. Dimitrikov needed on this mission.
The third steam punk adventure of the Prehistoric Journey series takes the four time travelers to the unexpected once again. It’s 1910, Captain Limmerick, Dr. Dimitrikov, Rosa, and Amoli mistakably time travel to 1487 England just after The War of the Roses. The queen is enchanted with Limmerick and has him knighted, where he must undergo challenging jousting tournaments, and prove his abilities as a skilled archer. He becomes entangled with the king’s rivals and finds himself in near death situations. He uses his position, as part of the king’s court, to rescue his friends from the castle dungeon, but struggles with the crown’s idea of chivalry.
Worlds collide, as the two lovers are torn apart and sent spinning through time and space. It will take all of Kyla’s feminine ingenuity and Beowulf’s strength of 30 men to discover a way to be together.
This sequel to Prehistoric Journey: The First Expeditions picks up where the first expedition left off. Something tore apart the lifeboat of The Atlantic Mermaid and the crew panicked. Captain Colin Limmerick, a steam-punk version of Indiana Jones, knows that the creature that did this was from a prehistoric time. He is convinced that Dr. Sasha Dimitrikov’s time-travel device widened the passage they journeyed through, allowing prehistoric mammals to slip into their time of 1910. Rosa, Limmerick’s former girlfriend and archeologist, insists there is a pathway that leads to the prehistoric past.
