"The Time Cavern will stimulate and captivate the imagination of young readers, girls and boys alike. I urge parents and teachers to add this book to their libraries." -- D. B. Pacini, author of The Loose End of the Rainbow

"Todd Fonseca's Time Cavern is filled with adventure, mysteries, and life lessons all crafted into a charming tale.

Sullivan, author of The Riyria Revelations

Todd A. Fonseca grew up in the northern Indiana city of Mishawaka. This small town is home to a large Amish community. Those visiting the area experience the Amish through the town's shops and nearby Amish Acres. Todd learned of the Amish culture through frequent family Sunday drives to rural Nappanee Indiana.

During these early years, Fonseca's interest in the arts began with music. He became an accomplished accordionist participating in national competitions leading to a #4 placement in 1983. Fonseca has also performed in New York's Carnegie Recital Hall. His high school career added drama to his resume. Having the role of curmudgeon Mr. Hassler in The Pajama Game, led to being cast as the lead in the production Jack and the Beanstalk.

The Time Cavern is his first published work, and was a finalist for the 2009 National Indie Excellence Award for Young Adult Fiction. His second book, Inverted: The Second Adventure was released in November 2011.

At Marquette University, Fonseca received a Biomedical Engineering graduate degree. His professional career includes numerous positions in medical device companies.
