In A World Without You, my hero, Bo, can travel through time. Or, at least, he thinks he can. Because the superhero school he’s attending is actually a boarding school for mentally disturbed youth.

Maybe. If nothing else, A World Without You is all about the twists. And you’ll have to read to find out the truth.

Today, to celebrate the release of my newest novel, I thought we’d talk about the five coolest places I’d like to visit if I had the ability to travel through time..and the five I would NOT want to go to at all.


FIVE PLACES I DEFINITELY WOULD GO TO IF I COULD TRAVEL THROUGH TIME

1.Tudor and Elizabethan England: Maybe it’s because we share a first name, but I’ve always loved the Queen. But the reason I’d want to go back in time is to discover the truth. I remember being on tour of the Tower of London, and the tour guide said that Anne Boleyn had six fingers on one hand and had been tried as a witch for it. But when I looked up the actual facts of the story—that just wasn’t true. So knowing that the smear campaign against women in that era was so bad that even the tour guides are getting facts wrong makes me want to go there and observe just to know the truth.

2.Feudal Era Japan: Blame Inuyasha for this one. I just want there to be demons and truth arrows and adventure and I know it’s not real, but hey, neither is time travel and a girl can dream, yeah?

3.The Titanic: I just want to see it. I’m leaving before it hits any icebergs, that’s for sure. But I just want to walk down those stairs, once, and see it.

4.North America, before the colonies: The victors tell the history. And so much of Native American history has been lost to war and death and relocation and injustice. Much like Tudor Era England, I’d love to just know the truth. I’d love to know what it was really like, beyond what our (often biased) history books tell us.  

5.Jurassic Era: Dinosaurs. Come on. Dinosaurs are cool.

FIVE PLACES I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT GO TO IF I COULD TRAVEL THROUGH TIME

1.The Future: Nope. No. No way. I have seen what happens in movies when people go into the future and they don’t belong there. Out. Not going to happen.

2. Viking Era: This was almost on my places-I-wanted-to-go list. But then I remembered. Vikings like to stab things. Vikings like to stab people. That doesn’t sound that much fun.

3.Let’s be honest, anything before Civil Rights. That shit wasn’t cool, yo, and it’s worse the further back you go. And beyond America, I’m including every timeline with slavery or apartheid of any kind. Unless I could go back and change stuff, then it’d be worth it.

4.The Oregon Trail: I’d probably get dysentery.

5.Jurassic Era: Dinosaurs. Come on. Dinosaurs would eat me.

    This is such a fun post idea! I would love to visit the Titanic as well, although the thought actually terrifies me a little. I suppose getting out before the iceberg would make it doable. lol 😉
