What did they do all day?

By On Jun 20 2013, 6:16 am

One challenge with writing TIMELESS and TIME WEAVER was having my characters in the great outdoors so much of the time. We’re talking wild, wild wilderness, mind you, not the beach or a national park. For a modern-day character, being thrust back into the forest primeval is both intoxicating and disorienting. And for someone like me who – well let’s face it, I’m an indoors kind of person with my iPad and my NetFlix subscription – it’s downright intimidating.

My heroines adapted with amazing grace but, by the end, Cassie was yearning for her mascara and conditioner, andShannonwasn’t thrilled about giving birth in the middle of nowhere. Plus, they only brought the clothes on their backs, so when their jeans and T-shirts and running shoes (and bras) wore out, they were doomed. Read more…

Some people believe time travel is possible, some don’t.  In either case, the subject elicits shockingly strong opinions, as I first discovered when Timeless was released in paperback, and thereafter, whenever I mentioned to anyone that I was writing other time travel stories. Why does this surprise me? Well, if I tell someone I’m writing [...]

Genre hopping

Tagged as Time Travel, writing

Do you like science fiction? And historical romance? And romantic comedy? And thrillers/horror? Fantasies, spy stories, the works? That’s me – as a reader and a moviegoer – and I suspect 50% of the population is the same. So naturally, when I started writing, I jumped around. Unfortunately, as a genre-hopping writer, there’s a downside. [...]
