 Vic and her friend Lin are invited to spend Christmas in Washington state. Their friend Evelyn is visiting family to help with a haunting.  None of them believe in ghosts but something is going on. Also, hairy monsters were seen in the woods. Evelyn thinks Vic might be a big help with that. Things get complicated by the blizzard.  The owner of the property Vic visits doesn’t want word to get out that strange beasts are there - hunters will overrun his land.  Then there is that big hole in the ground and the unexpected visitor.   While Vic deals with all that, Lin Li and Evelyn must read thousands of pages of old correspondence in Chinese to find the answer to the mystery of the ghost. Like all Vic Challenger novels, driven by action, and unpredictable adventure. You’ll never guess all that happens.

This turns out to be the most unusual Christmas Vic may ever have

 Vic: Never Give Up, is the 3rd   book in the series The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger

Vic and her friend Lin Li plan a two or three-night camp out at the Grand Canyon before they head for Britain.  They didn’t plan on the Dine’ who want to hang them, the madman, the mysterious cavern, and the slavers (now more commonly called ‘human traffickers’).  48 hours before their ship is to leave New York, they find themselves in San Francisco.  Historical note: They could not hop a passenger plane and zip over.  It was “impossible” for them to make it.  However, never underestimate the ingenuity of a  farm girl with 2 degrees and an indwelling cave girl persona.

En-route they meet a survivor of the Titanic and eventually make it to the Scottish highlands where they expect a more restful trip than what they experienced in Arizona.  They do learn to play peever and shinty and to love Squash.  However, they didn’t plan on the descendants of Christie Cleek or and the herd of beasts which the Picts were petroglyping about .a millennia ago.  And Vic realizes even a heroess can have tragedy in her personal life.   One lesson learned:  don’t wait until it is too late.

Fast-paced and unpredictable, action adventure in the tradition of the adventure pulps of the early 20th Century.  If you like Doc Savage, The Avenger (Dick Benson), Nancy Drew, or Tarzan or any other novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs you will love Vic Challenger.

What reviewers think of the series:

Vic Challenger personifies every sword or ax-wielding heroine ever drawn by any heroic fantasy artist.

the female answer to Indiana Jones

Great Campy Multi-Genre Book

I have recommended the Vic Challenger books to my wife and to all of my children

Any of these novels would make a really good movie.

if you like Clive Cussler or James Rollins, these are definitely the books for you.

“The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger”   series is inspired by writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. Rider Haggard, Jules Verne, Arthur Conan Doyle and H. G. Wells; and by characters like Nancy Drew, Lara Croft, Alan Quatermain, Doc Savage and his cousin Patricia Savage, and Dick Benson and his assistant Nellie Gray.   The writing style has been compared to Burroughs and is also reminiscent of early action driven horror novels by Graham Masterton. The series is set in the 1920’s and considerable research adds to the “realism”  You will find yourself effortlessly learning bits of history, some of which may amaze you.   Vic’s travels are woven into the history of the time, so you may be asking yourself “Is this real?”


A  mercilessly agonizing memory can sometimes break a person and render them incapable of facing even the commonplace without being unnerved.  Sometimes it can endow a person with near superhuman ability to take action in any circumstance.

You are in for a treat from The Queen of New Pulp Adventure! Vic Challenger always delivers fast-paced action, unpredictable adventure and adrenaline pumping fun!  Vic’s novels are not like anything you’ve read lately.  They are imaginative, prototypical tales like a clever friend might share over coffee and will enthrall you in unaccustomed ways, then compel  you to search for more! 

Visiting Africa in 1919, Vic brushes shoulders with death on more than one occasion  and everyone around her concludes she is uncannily calm and proficient in the face of the most horrible threats.  Vic understands their awe but to her it is second nature. She seems to have been born with the facility for adventure, yet  when she turned thirteen her skills did magnify and that’s when the eerie dreams began - dreams so vivid that she would wake with her body feeling their impact. She still had those dreams when she visited Africa and there nature conspired to solve their mystery.  Yet the solution was not a conclusion but a beginning.  It evoked a monumental quest which might take a lifetime and would likely lead Vic into every dangerous corner of Earth.  The first hurdle was to simply design a plan to make the quest successful and Vic had no ideas.  How was she going to find something she lost - on the day she died, 100,000 years ago?

Begin the adventure!  Discover the secret of Vic’s dreams and find out how Vic will search. Attempt to survive the wild Yucatan jungles of the 1920’s and learn the truth about thunderbirds. Experience the excitement today! Buy your copy of Time Doesn’t Matter now and begin the series.
