Time Travel Stories

I love time-travel stories and the what-if questions they carry. My husband feels differently. He once told me that he’s afraid that if he ever time-traveled that he would waste the experience just looking for me. I think it’s one of the sweetest things he’s ever said, and we’ve been married for a very long time, so he’s said plenty of sweet things.

The Highwayman Incident is the first book in the Witching Well series. I got the idea while watching a documentary about the Salem Witch trials. (Side note, documentaries are great for novel fodder. I got the idea for Beyond the Pale while watching a documentary about Rasputin.) Although I grew up in Washington State and have lived most of my adult life in California, I lived in Connecticut’s Fairfield County while my husband worked in Manhattan. I definitely have a tender place in my heart for Connecticut—despite its haunted past. Coincidentally, a whole host of my ancestors also lived and died in Fairfield County. I like to think of them whispering in my ear while I write this series.

I have three books planned for the Witching Well series, The Highwayman Incident, The Cowboy Encounter and The Pirate Episode. I published the cowboy at the end of January.COWBOY encounter

And The Pirate Episode will be published sometime in June.

I had three books planned for my Rose Arbor series, but in a few weeks my fourth Rose Arbor novel will be released in the Authors of Main Street boxed set, Love Blooms on Main Street, so you never know where my muse may take me!

    Time travel sounds exciting but I don’t want to try it. I think I’m with your hubby. I’d be spending my time in a panicked over the ones that I loved.

    I don’t have to mention the Outlander series because I’ve raved about it a dozen times already. There I go again! And I could watch the Back to the Future movies any number of times and still enjoy them. I looke forward to reading The Cowboy Encounter. If I were to go back in time, I’d want to meet my ancestors and see what they were like.

    Time-travel is fascinating. Like Susan, I’d love to go back and see where my ancestors lived and what kind of life they had. Congrats on your new books!

  4. I just mentioned this on my personal Facebook page the other night, while I was watching Outlander – I am hooked just like Susan, LOL. I would go back in a hot second, but for the issue of running water; because let’s face it a babbling brook just doesn’t count! I could get over it for a small period of time, for the right experience or love affair 🙂

    I think there would be so many things we’d miss. Our loved ones would be the most obvious, but also warm water, furnaces, air-conditioning, Tylenol. I think even the shoes would be hard (literally.) And toothbrushes! Indoor plumbing! That’s what’s so great about reading. We can vicariously live in any place and time. And romances are great because we get to fall in love over and over again.

    Kristy, you have a delightfully sweet husband. I like time travel stories, but I don’t think I’d be interested in doing it myself. I’d be trying to correct mistakes I made in the past! *LOL* That would be the ultimate attempt at perfectionism, wouldn’t it?
