You, A Time Traveler?

If you could actually go back in time and stop something from happening, it could potentially save lives, prevent atrocities, etc. But then, who knows what the far-reaching effects altering the timeline would be? Would the world as we know it exist when we return from our mission? Would it be better, worse, unchanged?

Facing Critics and Naysayers

I was trying to encourage a fellow writer today who was feeling down because of mean-spirited Amazon customer reviewers. We’ve all read a few doozies that made us shake our heads, haven’t we?
