Three lives converging across time and space may shift the foundations of your worldview.

The novel Dance of the Hummingbirds is an epic saga that journeys from ancient life in the American Southwest to the Norse village of Birka – the heart of sea trade in medieval Europe and a hotbed for building the famous dragonships of the Viking era.

This is the story of Kai - a Hohokam woman, whose family has lived for generations in the high desert of today's American southwest. At a young age she is given the daunting challenge of leading her People after her grandmother's death. Intimidated and often thwarted by the village shaman she persists in her promises to her family and village.

It is the story of Thorynn Petŕsson - a Viking lad who, despite his father's efforts to dissuade him, leaves Birka’s shores to go a-viking. But, instead of gold and glory, Thorynn and his thieving camrades meet the wrath of Thor and shipwreck. He survives to eventually find himself on a journey in a strange land of extraordinary people.

And this is the story of Lillie Lisle, a brilliant archaeologist whose mystical experiences cause her to question her own beliefs and the physical world, itself. Lillie struggles to breach the barriers of the past unearthing ancient mysteries and those of her own psyche.

Dance of the Hummingbirds is the coalescing of past and present, east and west, and the untwining of a family legacy  - as the hummingbirds dance.
