Tomorrow is one of my son’s birthdays and nothing marks time for me like the kids birthdays. I can see so clear in my mind the day they were born, the day they started school the day they graduated school – at least this child. I’m busy making cheesecake as I write this blog – the birthday cake of choice for decades!
Sometimes I look back and wish I’d done things differently. Sometimes I look back and wonder what if…
I wonder if this reminiscent period of life is responsible for the odd book plots that involve time travel? As if I wish I could leap frog forward into something nicer, easier – or maybe just different? And the occasional thrown back to better days type of story.
It’s a rare occasion when my mind isn’t buzzing with multiple stories all at the same time, but time travel isn’t one I’ve written much about – until now.
Then this isn’t likely traditional time travel genre – not sure I can do traditional anything, honestly – but it’s suiting my mood. As in ‘how would I feel if I were on top of the world only to turn around and find my world as I know it – gone!’ Such a typical Dale Mayer theme.
See I can’t do traditional. And there has to be some suspense, but I’m looking for lighter – a little comedy, a lot of shake up, and of course there’s got to be love!
Now I can understand why I’d like to try out a new world, a new time frame, and ditch th one I’m living (at least some of the time. lol) but what about you? Do you read time travel type of romance/fiction? If so what is the draw for you? And do you have any favorite time travel books to suggest?
