Angela Steed | The Road to…Time Travel?
Uncategorized / November 3, 2008

Her footsteps go where no other woman has walked before. Through a doorway our heroine treads into a fracture in the universe, and empty space becomes a walkway to her destination. Stonehenge is the beginning of her journey; a renowned world is the end. And everything else between is…nothing? Science is an ingredient I really wanted to add to The Sea’s Embrace, but only as much as I could get away with in a romance novel.

Luckily, I recently conducted an interview with Vince and Morgan and asked them this specific question. Here’s what they had to say about it: Vince: “It sounds like a new snowboarding stunt. I’d probably be doing it right now if I hadn’t been dragged here for this interview.” Morgan: “Ever since he brought home his gold medals from the Winter Games, he’s been like this.” Vince: “Like what?” Morgan: “Eager to get out of your responsibilities. I know the Winter Games is still a-ways off, but you have to keep…
