Tangled in Time Cover art

When I started writing Tangled in Time, it was not meant to be so, well, tangled. It was supposed to be a simple mystery story for an anthology with a Texas Landmarks theme. After…possibly six false starts, I almost gave up.

Then I started wondering if I could write a short story using one of my characters from my Project Enterprise series (which was two books at the time). I did a mental flip through the characters and almost immediately, Colonel Cary stepped up. I think he was done being a minor, background character.

And he wanted a girl.

I didn’t plan on Olivia. Neither did Colonel Cary (the poor guy didn’t even have a first name when I got around to writing his story). But when she strolled around the side of the transmogrification machine…wait?

What?

I was NOT going to write a time travel story. Or a steampunk story.

I was not.
