The Matriarch Perspective

Welcome one and all. I am a writer. I write science fiction and fantasy novels and sometimes dabble in short stories. So of course, this website is about my writing and about selling my books. That is true. But it's not everything. I'm a lot of things besides just a writer. I'm a woman. A …

Character’s Corner: Time Travel Journal Entry of Sam Altair, 16 June 1906

When Casey and I decided to keep journals of our experiences in 1906, we had no real plans to try and change our history. We always knew it was a possibility--two people who have moved backwards through time, and are living in the past, will cause changes that affect the future. Just being alive will …

Character’s Corner: Time Travel Journal Entry, Thomas Andrews 24 January 1912

Malcolm Paddick informed me that they are still waiting for parts needed to install the lifts on 401 (editor's note - 401 was Harland & Wolff's production number for Titanic - they seldom called the ships by name). This is cutting the schedule close. I need them to begin lift installation this week. If I …

Character’s Corner: Time Travel Journal Entry of Sam Altair, 19 January 1912

Received a letter from Albert (Einstein) in which he expounds upon the parallel universe theory of time travel. In particular, he takes me to task - and rightly so - for sloppy nomenclature. He reminds me that this second universe is not parallel to the original one. How could it be, when its starting point …

Character’s Corner: Journal Entry of Casey Andrews, 10 January 1912

Mrs. Herceforth called yesterday, and as usual, provided a stimulating and amusing time of chatter. At one point, she mentioned the dinner party she hosted last week. Tom and I were not able to attend, and she said that although she missed our presence, it nevertheless gave her guests plenty of time to discuss Tom's …

Character’s Corner: Journal Entry of Thomas Andrews, 02 January 1912

Casey and Sam are fond of celebrating the New Year, but as I had to work yesterday, we did not stay up much past midnight on Sunday. In fact, we had a rather abrupt end to New Year's Eve celebrations. As the clock struck midnight, I turned to Casey, expecting to kiss her. Instead, she …

Journal Entries: Casey, 5 June 1906

So here we are: time travelers from the future, just like on Star Trek. Except we're poor and hungry and dirty. Sam is still sick. Sometimes, I'm tempted to turn us in - go to some officials with our modern gadgets and convince them of what we are. Offer to give them future information in …

Journal Entry, 25 January 1906

Time travel used to be an experiment, a switch flipped in a laboratory. Now it's the buildings around me, the people in the street, the smell of coal in the air. Scared? I'm bloody terrified. Entry in Time Travel Journal # 17* of Samuel Altair, January 25, 1906 *Journals 1--16 are in the future. I …
