Local Author Releases Thrilling Science Fiction

CYPRESS, TX – What would happen if we could change time? Texas author Michael T. Gracey explores this question in his new science fiction novel, “The Time Shift,” set in the Texas Gulf Coast.

The book follows the footsteps of a young man who attempts to go back in time, to change the course of his life and the lives of others. Set in two time periods, readers go back to 1956 in Port Arthur, Texas, called the 'Wicked City' because of the gambling, prostitution and political corruption. Thirty years later in Houston, a young man, born and raised in Port Arthur, takes a wrong turn and finds himself on the receiving end of a loaded gun.

What would've happened had he taken a different path that day, stayed home a few minutes longer? Gracey reveals if the young man can alter time and the course of events that changed his and so many others’ lives forever in this chilling book.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or This is also an eLIVE title, meaning each copy contains a code redeemable for a free audio version from eLIVE – Listen, Imagine, View, and Experience!

Gracey has a bachelor’s degree and is a registered Professional Engineer with a background of engineering management, marketing, and project management. Born and raised in Port Arthur, where the book is set, he now resides in Cypress, Texas.
