Return to the Writer’s Cave

After going to see Doctor Zhivago on Broadway (breaking with lifelong tradition of balalaika-free Mother’s Day weekends), I returned home to find Highland Soldiers 1: The Enemy at #1 for free Scottish historical romances and #107 in storewide free books.

Physics 101: Understanding time travel and why we shouldn’t dismiss the possibility

“Paradoxes are yet another reason for why time travel seems like science fiction and is easily dismissed as a real possibility by most people. However, there is a work around to this and it involves parallel universes and alternate timelines. Specifically, some theoreticians speculate that if you could indeed manage to time travel you would not be part of the same universe you left from, but rather create an entirely different one upon your arrival.”

These are the sorts of things that made my head hurt while writing my time travel romances, Highland Passage and Knight Errant.

The Highland Passage stone chamber. A few years ago, I was able to walk inside this stone chamber, but it has since caved in. (The third photo has been brightened to show the interior.)
