Time Travel Writing
As an avid reader of time travel fiction, movies, and TV series, not too surprisingly, I also enjoy writing time travel novels.
My young adult novel, DANGER IN TIME, involves a teenager who goes back in time ten years to save sister's life--only putting both teens in danger.
I have always been fascinated by the concept of time travel, black holes, and such. It is fun speculating on the theoretical twists, turns, and implications of time travel.
For instance, would I be dead or never born today, were I killed during a trip to the past? Or does the chicken or the egg come first when it concerns the time bending of traveling from the present?
Could a single change in time disrupt the entire future?
These are all intriguing questions, giving novelists and screenwriters ample possibilities to play with, leading to varying outcomes.
Some of my favorite time travel novels are:
1. THE MAP OF TIME by Félix J Palma
2. THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE by Audrey Niffenegger
3. THE TIME MACHINE by H.G. Wells
4. A WRINKLE IN TIME by Madeleine L'Engle
5. BOTH SIDES OF TIME by Caroline Cooney
Amongst my favorite time travel series are:
1. THE TIME TUNNEL
2. BEING ERICA
3. STAR TREK
4. LOST IN SPACE
Favorite time travel movies include:
1. TIME AFTER TIME
2. THE TWO WORLDS OF JENNIE LOGAN
3. SOMEWHERE IN TIME
4. THE TIME MACHINE
5. THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE
