Top Ten Reasons Time Travel Would Be Awesome!

One of the reasons I like to write historical fiction so much, is because it allows me to theoretically time travel. Yes, if time travel were real, I'd be ALL over it. I would miss the internet (because I'm probably addicted), my cell phone, hospitals, showers and deodorant. BUT I would get to SEE so much that smelly armpits, the threat of death and no connection to the rest of the world would be worth it. For a few days. Then I'd have to go back home until the next time...

Me at Edinburgh Castle--pretending I was in another era!

Here's my: Top Ten Reasons Time Travel Would Be Awesome!

10. To see the land before it was industrialized and artificial light brightened the night sky.
9. To see what ancient grains are actually supposed to taste like.
8. To see a king or queen riding in procession through the town.
7. To wear the clothes!
6. To taste their wine!
5. To see the castles the way they really were.
4. To meet William Wallace, King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc, and every other amazing person that has changed history.
3. To see blackbirds jump out of a pie.
2. To attend a feast and dance and drink and be merry!
1. To experience life the way it was back then, and to meet the people I spend my days with.

The USA Today Bestselling Highland Bound series continues in Book Five -- Highlander Undone.

Continue Ewan and Shona's tale... And find out what happened to Rory!

With Logan and Emma away from the castle, Shona and Ewan are left in charge. The passion of their honeymoon is interrupted by an unexpected visitor seeking revenge on Rory MacLeod, who leaves them in desperate need to find the missing man. Unbeknownst to them, Rory has been transported to the future, where he is reunited with his long lost love, Moira, twin sister to Shona. Their attraction to each other still burns bright. As fate would have it, the four of them end up on a journey through the Highlands in an attempt to clear Rory's name, and solve the mystery behind Moira and Shona's birth. Passion. Love. Adventure. Danger. And a little bit of humor.
