“If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?”
I have the great fortune of having had a wealthy great uncle invest some money into my family’s genealogy. He had 50 beautiful, hard-cover books printed that extends one branch of my family back to the 1400s or so… I don’t know where 49 of those copies are, but my aunt has one, and over the past several years she has meticulously transcribed its contents into Geni.com.

He slipped into the dressing room and a moment later strode out of the building ready to blend in. His next stop: the Ford plant where his uncle had worked over a half-century before.”
In the middle of writing my time travel series, WILTON’S GOLD (Amazon Kindle), I had the opportunity to visit the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian. I was standing in front of General George Washington’s uniform that he wore during the American Revolution and a wave of emotion hit me.
Now that the WILTON’S GOLD time travel series is “out there,” (Writer’s Edge Publishing – Kindle | Nook) and being read, and as people ask me questions about my writing process, it’s been interesting to take a look back at what the challenges were in writing the trilogy. Time travel is a different kind of animal, and I tell anyone who admits to me they’re thinking about putting together a time travel story to be wary of what they’re getting themselves into. Here are some reasons why…
