Tom Oakley experiences disturbing episodes of déjà-vu and believes he is going mad.

Then, he discovers that he's a “Walker” – someone who can transport himself to other times and places. Tom dreams about other “Walkers” in moments of mortal danger: Edward Dyson killed in a battle in 1879; Mary Brown who perished in the Great Fire of London; and
Charlie Hawker, a sailor who drowned on a U-boat in 1943.

Agreeing to travel back in time and rescue them, Tom has three dangerous adventures,
before returning to the present day. But Tom’s troubles have only just begun. He finds that he's drawn the attention of evil individuals who seek to bend history to their will.

Soon, Tom’s family are obliterated from existence and Tom must make a choice between saving them and saving his entire world.

Tomorrow's Guardian is a Young Adult Fantasy Novel.

Time travel could be a curse, not a gift. I am fascinated by alternate realities, the what "might have beens" of history and the possibilities that arise if someone could change the past. Tomorrow's Guardian is about all that.


'Richard Denning, ... keeps the action fast and furious for the other 400 or so pages of the book. Diving in and out of time, and in and out of the Twisted Reality (the other universe), there's never a dull moment as the inevitable confrontation with the evil Redfeld, villain of the piece, comes closer and closer.'

'I recommend it to readers around Tom's age, many of whom I confidently expect to absolutely love it. '

I received Tomorrows Guardian on Thursday and my youngest James (10) and I are reading it together. It's causing bedtime issues in that he wants to read more than time allows.
Great story. Sue

I can see this as a movie. Can I be in it?
