Back to the Future is my absolute favorite movie. In high school, I had a shrine in my room dedicated to anything BTTF I could find. A great inspiration for me as an author was the character of George McFly, an aspiring sci-fi writer/nerd who always shied away from confrontation and adversity until his son traveled back in time and helped him overcome that. Possibly my favorite scene in the novel is when George McFly (the George of 1985 after being visited by his son) receives a box of books–his first novel. As he hands a copy to his son, he reminds us all that “you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.” I’ve wanted to be an author since I can remember, and I’ve been watching Back to the Future since I can remember. That quote and scene has always stuck with me, and when I received my first box of novels last year, I felt like George myself.
For this blog hop, I’m giving away a copy of my novella For Whom My Heart Beats Eternal. It’s the story of a college student who travels back in time to the 1970s and falls in love with her professor, someone who in her own time is close to retirement. When she returns, she finds the world is futuristic compared to what she remembers… and that isn’t the only thing that’s changed… The novella includes two other time travel shorts, one about a man’s personal struggle with a time machine and his own stubborn will, and the other about a group of people tasked–for the umpteenth time–with saving humanity.
