Author Biography

Ed managed retail stores for over four decades, and his dry sense of humor always added a special touch. With the philosophy that all people should be treated with kindness and respect, he coached his colleagues on the importance of the golden rule. For the majority of his working life, he was focused on bringing joy to two generations of customers at the world’s biggest toy store, and he inspired his team to have fun in everything they did. That philosophy still resonates in the hearts and minds of the thousands of lives it has touched. At a new stage in his life, he is sharing his hard-earned knowledge through the Benchmark Legacy Series. These intriguing stories capture the significance of life’s choices and their consequences. The tales encourage the reader to reflect on their own life and strive to make a positive change in the lives of those around them.

Relic Rapture by EDD Jordan is Book 2 in the Benchmark Legacy Series about a group of people caught up in a tangled web of traveling backward, and occasionally forward, in time. Whereas book one sets the stage by introducing us to the main characters and the mysterious wooden bench, Relic Rapture is the main event with time travel escapades galore. As the story begins, Jack and his new love interest, Kourin, and several others are already dealing with the effects of the bench. Although they all try to stay away from the bench, several group members are still drawn to it. Before long, Jack, Kourin, Mandy, Laurel, and her dog Ubu find themselves in the past with little understanding of why they are all there. Soon, old sins are relived and Jack and the crew learn the hard way that changing the past never comes without devastating consequences for the present.

Fans of time travel should take note: Relic Rapture by EDD Jordan is a time travel tale at its finest. The reader will become dizzy at times as they are carried forward and backward, deep into the past and present lives of the characters. Time travel is never treated as a fun excursion here, but always as a serious life-altering event. What sets Relic Rapture apart from other time travel novels is the way it puts such emphasis on its diverse cast of characters, human and canine. The characters each have fully developed personalities including strengths and flaws. Their relationships with one another are also shown in intricate detail. By the time the characters end up in trouble, we already care about them deeply, thanks to the author's superb writing. Fans of complex time travel tales involving strong characters will find much to love in Relic Rapture.
