Interview With An Author

BB: Welcome Erin! We’re excited to interview you today.

EK: It’s a pleasure to be here!

BB: Okay, first question. What made you decide to write time travel?

EK: Oh man. Starting out easy, huh? *laughs* I think I’ve always been fascinated with the idea that time is fluid and that the past influences the future in many ways, but also, the future echoes the past, too. I like history so that part’s fun to research. And the scientist in me wants to know more than what makes it into the history books. How did people live in the past? How do I think they’d live in the future? The mundane life from a bygone era is actually quite interesting when you think of it. (I also definitely blame my mother’s romance books from the 80’s. She had quite a few time travel novels in the stash that influenced my growing up years.)

BB: What’s the most surprising thing you learned while writing your books?

EK:  Great question! Characters have a mind of their own and sometimes it’s the author who’s along for the ride. Also, it’s easy to forget that people are people in every age. I’ve had the privilege of reading some letters and postcards from 75 and 100 years ago. It’s really engraved in my mind that our grandparents and great-grandparents felt love and heartbreak just as deeply and passionately as we do now.

BB: Last question, we promise. In Exit, Stage Left, do you have a character you resonate with most?

EK: I do! And believe it or not, it’s Joan of Arc. Or rather, the version I believe she’d be if she had to time travel as much as she had in the story.

BB: Love it! Thank you for your time. We can’t wait to see what new works you come up with next.

EK: Thanks for having me!
