Time Waits Blog Party – Post 2

May 15, 2015

Yup. Me again :)

I figured I should explain a bit about Time Waits. The main plot centres on time-travel, where the Temporal Agents are neutral and have a duty to resolve historical mysteries and confirm the facts as they happened. I love this idea that time-travel is used for a purpose beyond making a bucket load of cash or causing historical havoc.

I do like a decent bit of time travel. Have done ever since I saw Back to the Future and Doctor Who, when I was but a wee little sprite. One of the first time-travel short-stories I ever read revolved around time-travel being used to do old-school big game hunting in the prehistoric era. There was much crushing of butterflies, and the idea just settled in the back of my mind, brewing away for well over fifteen years.

I’m not quite sure when it all slid into place. Possibly some time between reading The Night Watch (Lukyanenko) and simultaneously crashing headlong back into my historical drama phase. All I know is that I suddenly went from avoiding writing time-travel (because I have an inherent fear of creating a paradox, which I think I may have been afraid of doing because I knew I would do it, which… may sort of be a paradox too?) to suddenly having a novel on my hands.

Does get you to wondering, though – if you could go anywhere in time, which historical question would you want answered? I have so many places I’d want to see and/or people. I’d love to actually go back and find out Tutankhamun’s cause of death, though. That mystery has been on my mind since I saw his death mask when I was 7. Because I’m morbid that way  :D

    That’s a difficult question because looking at history their are so many questions un-answered. But i think i would love to see the ime periode Jesus lived and see what he was like and if what the bible says is correct ;)
