Going to a preschool trunk party trick-or-treating tonight. I’m so glad I live close to my kids so we can do this together. So we’re dressing up as trolls and some of the parents are putting out the treats everyone brought for the event and decorating their vehicles. Little one is here for the day so we’re going to go to the grocery store in a little while and get the ingredients for Monster Tacos for Sunday’s Halloween meal. We always do something fun for Halloween.
I always have to dress my dogs for Halloween, just for fun too. They’re so good-natured.
It’s actually chilly today and will be tonight so we’ll have to bundle up a bit. I’m glad!
I love time travels. I guess it’s like a fish out of water. In my wolf stories, they live LONG lives, so that means some of them have cool historical pasts. I love history, so it’s a way for me to add some of that into the story. For instance, in one of my Highland wolf stories, I show the scene in the past where the wolf pack is dealing with pirates in the Highlands. One of them sees a woman trying to escape brigands who he again later rescues in contemporary times. Her family were pirates of old.
But in A Ghost of a Chance at Love, she actually time travels to old town Salado, only it has a different name in the old west. It’s a town in Texas that I used to visit with my mother, and I always wondered if you went back in time, how would you explain who you were? And how would you return to your own world? It’s also a ghost story…and she’s caught up in a real mess, both in her own world, and in the past–all because of her job and a ghost relation who doesn’t want to leave what she remembers of her world.
I was playing around with a Viking from Neostock, featuring a blending of worlds–a cave that becomes part of an abandoned building as he travels between times. Wouldn’t that be a shock for him and everyone else who encounters him? How would he deal with it? Would he find his way back?
Okay, so I have to immerse myself in the real world–fighting crime between wolves in SEAL Wolf Surrender….
Have a great day, whether you slip into the past or move forward to explore new worlds!
