Gwyn Cready | What Inspires My Time Travel Love
Uncategorized / March 29, 2010

Hi, everyone. Thanks for having me here to blog today. I’ve also been getting a lot of questions about what inspires me about time travel as well as the painter aspects of my new release, Flirting with Forever, so I thought I take some time to address both those things, and if you hang on until the end, I’ll have some news about a pretty nice contest. One hint ladies: shoes. First, time travel. My friend theorizes I am a time traveler, that I leave this world when I sleep to visit another time, which is why certain times (late 17th/early 18th centuries) appeal to me more than others. Could be true. My mind is open to such possibilities, but personally I think Jamie Fraser made such an impression on me I couldn’t let go : ) All I can tell you is I’ve always been fascinated with the interesting possibilities and conflict that time travel sets up in a story. Back to the Future is sort of like the basic textbook on that for me. I guess I watched it at an impressionable age, but there you have it. In fact, I was just at a lecture this week…

As Springsteen once said, “I’m sick of sitting ‘round here trying to write this book.” I’m a big movie buff, and I think the inspiration for my stories comes from a cross between my love for time-twisting movies like Back to the Future, Groundhog Day, Sliding Doors, and Kate and Leopold with my absolute addition to any sort of romantic comedy. If it’s gotten more than one star in the last twenty-five years, I’ve dragged my unwilling husband to see it. Tumbling Through Time (Pocket Books, $6.99), my debut, is the story of a woman who tries on a pair of magic sandals at the Nine West store in the Pittsburgh airport and ends up getting transported back…
