To help you keep track of all the comings and goings, I've created a timeline for you. Since I've never identified the specific years these events occur, I am basing the time line on James Shepherd's year of birth since, even though he dies before the action begins, he's the one who really started it all.

This timeline contains events connected with my other series too. They are all grounded in the same "reality" that I created for The Shepherd Series. Be careful reading the timeline. If you haven't read all my published books, you may find some spoilers!
