What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The inspiration for this novel came after Taylor's Mom died from a devastating loss to brain cancer. She has woven in her tale of grief along with her fascination to travel back through time to see her Mom again. An important theme in D.M. Taylor's life that is also prominent throughout her main character's journey is one of resilience and inner strength.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Each character was created to tell my main character's story.The characters were developed to either support of become antagonistic to her goals. Interactions and people that Taylor knows in life were threaded throughout the various characters. Not one character represents a true person completely. At times, the main character is pulled right from Taylor herself but then sometimes she is a replica of someone else in Taylor's life.
Insignificant nagging in the back of my mind transformed to the precise moment of accepting the knowledge that something was wrong. My thoughts scrambled through unacknowledged evidence like a scientist arriving to a conclusion. The internet isn’t working, the tv has no reception, phone calls won’t go through, and the Saturday alarm was sounding.
It’s hard to describe how it felt to become abruptly cut off but the feelings come to me with a vivid picture of that morning when it all changed. Life had evolved into this warped state so at any instant I could know what everyone was doing, where they were, how they felt, what their political stance was, I could read my mail, do my banking, shopping, and fill myself spiritually all in the device held in my hand no matter where I was or what I was doing.
It felt empty.
