Frightening nightmares.
Aberrations in time.
Who is haunting Cate’s nightmares?

 Months after solving two mysteries involving her ancestors, time-traveling, castle-dwelling Countess, Lady Catherine Kensie, still suffers from haunting nightmares. Chased by a mysterious man, Cate ponders who could be haunting her dreams and disturbing her sleep. She’s also smack dab in the middle of a brand-new research project, having found journals belonging to the Scottish castle’s original owner.

As Cate digs into the castle’s history, not only do her nightmares become more frequent and more frightening, but Cate also begins to experience strange phenomena with the time portals enclosed in the castle walls. Controlled by the mysterious heirloom timepiece she received as part of her inheritance, Cate is shocked when she begins to slip in and out of other time periods despite not activating the mechanism that controls them!

Can Cate learn the secret to control the time portals and discover who haunts her dreams before she finds herself lost in time?

Q&A With the Author

When did you first consider yourself to be a writer?

I’ve always wanted to write a book and I even started one in my middle school days that I sadly never finished.  I honestly never considered myself a “writer” through my writing classes or even early drafts.  I thought I’d feel like a writer when my first book was published, but I really think the feeling was quite delayed.  I’m not sure I considered myself a writer until I was several published books in and I realized I wasn’t going to quit because I really loved doing it!

What advice do you have for a new writer?

Write daily!  And don’t give up.  There are going to be days when you feel like you can’t put a single word on the page, but keep pushing.  There will be days when you thing it doesn’t matter If you continue or that no one cares about your work, but your fans are out there waiting for your first book or your second or your sixteenth, so keep writing!

What is the easiest part of the writing process for you?

Coming up with the overall flow and “anchor” scenes that I’ll build the story around.  I start with a general idea and then a few key scenes will build.  Then I’ll have to string those together with the rest of the story.

What is your favorite part of this story?

This is a series crossover between my Cate Kensie Mysteries and my Shadow Slayers supernatural suspense series.  My favorite part of this story is the mixing of the two character groups.  There’s something really magical about two worlds colliding.  I especially like the time spent between the Duke and Cate.  

Which Character was the most fun to write about? Why? 

I loved writing Marcus (the Duke) in this story and I enjoy writing him in the Shadow Slayers series, too.  He’s a great “bad guy.”  He gets to say things no one else can say or do things no one else can do.  It’s really fun to push his boundaries and let him live it up in his bad boy role.  

I also love writing Cate! 

Which Character was the hardest to write about? Why?

I think the hardest character for me to write is Mrs. Fraser because she’s WAY better in the kitchen than I am!  I’ve got to imagine what it would be like to be a good cook and easily be able to pull together a meal with what’s in your pantry!
