Guest Post: Michelle Madow

Today I have a very special guest, it's Michelle Madow, the author of the Transcend Time series about a love that can transcend through time.  This is in honor of the final book coming out November 20, 2012, make sure to look out for it when it hits shelves.  It's a beautiful story and you should definitely check out the series if you haven't already.  So I asked her what time period would she visit and why, I have no idea what I would personally pick because I can only imagine the pros and cons of being in different eras, I think I'll stick to unless later is better in that case i might go to the future in hopes of a better today.  Did that make sense, it totally did in my head ... but I digress.

Here's Michelle ....

Top Five Places in Time to Visit


I have loved the idea of time travel since I was a kid. My love of anything time travel explains why I was inclined to include time travel in the final book of the Transcend Time Saga, Timeless, which will be coming out on November 20, 2012. I’m super excited to be sharing the top five places I would like to visit in time!

1) The Regency Era in England
I suppose this is a rather obvious response, since the Transcend Time Saga revolves around teenagers remembering past lives they lived in the Regency Era! My love of this time period stemmed from one of my all-time favorite love stories, Pride and Prejudice.

2) The Golden Age of Rome
I’ve loved Roman history since I was a kid, and think it’s incredible how people living two thousand years ago built such beautiful buildings. I would love to travel back in time and see what the Roman ruins looked like in their prime!

3) Tudor England
I must admit, my interest in this time period began when I devoured Philippa Gregory’s historical fiction books that took place during this era. I would love to see what court life was like—it seems like they had such wonderful parties!

4) The Titanic
This isn’t technically an “era,” but oh well! I’ve always been interested in the Titanic, and would love to see what it was like to travel on the luxury ship (in first class, of course.) I would be sure to time travel back home before it sinks, though!

5) Ancient Egypt
Pyramids, palaces, and feasts aboard boats floating on the Nile! I would love to see what Egypt looked like when it was the most advanced civilization in the world.

Thank you, Cathy, for having me on Addicted to Books!

About the Author:
Michelle Madow was inspired to write Remembrance after seeing Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video while a junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. The song and video gave her the story idea about a high school girl reincarnated from Regency Era, England. She handed in the first chapter as a homework assignment for class, and when her teacher and classmates wanted her to continue writing, she decided to go for it. By the end of the school year, her first novel was completed! For more information on Michelle and her books, visit www.michellemadow.com.

Michelle lives in Florida, where she is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.
