Author Insight:

I choose this section to illustrate one of my absolute favorite things about writing a time travel in this Highlander's Through Time series. I enjoy putting myself in the mind of a person who suddenly finds themselves in the midst of a war between kings, a time when bow practice was mandatory and clan rivalries very real.

In the last paragraph, Ian prepares to meet his grandfather. Creating a cast of characters for this series who weave through each book mean Julie and I coordinated continually, at times on a daily basis. We also were intent from the beginning to root the story amidst a backdrop of real history choosing a time before Robert the Bruce came to power.

This one page represents a balance between my own vision for Scottish time travel and the shared one Julie and I blended together for the series along with more than a sprinkling of history and, of course, love.
