The old scientist and horologist didn't mean any harm. He simply didn't want his adventure-seeking niece to meet the same fate as her mother. When he created a device to hold time still, he never could have imagined what would happen if things went wrong.

It was then up to Jacqueline and Ervin to journey to where it all began to set things right. But would they make it in time? Would the sun ever set again? What would become of their little town? What would happen to the world?

This is the first part of the Clockmaker Trilogy - a story set to music.

This work was made with patrons in mind. Patron names are found throughout the story.

I make short songs for doing dishes or walking the dog or riding the bus. Sometimes it sounds like the smell of the ground after it rains in autumn. Sometimes it sounds like a long summer drive with the windows down.

Sometimes I make music for film/TV/games/radio. Sometimes I make music for patrons.

Most of the time I'm drinking coffee.
