If you were sent 1000 years into the past, would you survive?
Traveller Inceptio describes how the Transporter is accidentally invented and becomes public knowledge when it sends a subject 1000 years into the past.
A Special Forces team of Travellers is then selected and trained with the intent to send them to Saxon England to explore what could be a very dangerous period of history.
From the beaches of Australia, to the forests of Saxon England, Traveller Inceptio reveals how Travellers discover they need a lot more than technology to survive the trials of early 11th Century life.
Targeted Age Group:: 18+ Male and Female
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Following being cheated by a crooked business partner, I sat on the beach and looked to the buildings that faced the water and thought … "What was this location like 100 years, or 200 years ago." Then 1000 years. Then it was a progression to – "How would I survive if sent back 1000 years?
The story took shape from there.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
As the story developed, the characters developed themselves – or so it felt. I never intended for there to be a romance – 'too cheesy' I thought. But that happened too!
My main emphasis was to make any character realistic, as developed as I could make them. They are real people where real things happened and they respond in ways any human would.
After watching for a few more moments, Michael moved silently until he hid behind a stout, mossy tree only a few paces behind the monk. He again carefully scanned the surrounding forest. A primitive lean-to where the monk apparently slept stood a few steps away and a staff, used as a weapon or walking support, rested against it. The monk continued to mutter in what sounded like Latin, so he listened and watched.
Certain they were alone, Michael stepped silently and unseen from his cover and nervously cleared his throat to attract the monk’s attention.
The monk was so lost in his muttering he appeared not to hear. However, the second gentle cough had him immediately freeze and fall silent as his hands flew to his face. Slowly, as if terrified at what he might see, he struggled to look over his shoulder. He watched as the monk caught sight of him and Michael imagined what he saw; an armed stranger only paces behind, hands raised, and with a cautious smile. Michael could smell him, his rank, musty, unwashed body odour and the wet-dog smell of damp wool. Though the monk looked harmless, Michael’s heart hammered and he was ready to explode into action if needed. He hoped first impressions would be enough to stop the monk from screaming or running in terror. After all, to be alone in the forest one moment and then have an armed man standing there the next would not be the most comforting of situations. Though he saw no companions, he had no desire to combat a hidden protector who might dash to the monk’s aid.
The monk was stooped to a height that came only to Michael’s eyes. With a scruffy beard on a heavily lined face, his pale-grey eyes and mouth were wide open in shock, staring into the newcomer’s face. Michael clearly saw a few tombstone-like brown teeth that clung perilously to pink gums.
However, the monk was full of surprises. Rather than being terrified at the unexpected sight of an armed intruder, his hands, clutched around a small wooden crucifix at his throat and flew to his mouth as he burst into tears.
