If you could time travel…

Question: If you could travel back to any time in history, and to any place – city or country, where would you go? Would you be in an urban or country setting? What is there about that particular place and time that appeals to your imagination?

I am moving towards the end of my second draft in a book that has yet to be titled. (I may ask your help with that too:) The book is the first in a trilogy and the setting is Paris in 1866. I’ve more or less decided how the trilogy will end but the middle book has no setting – yet. So I would love to hear from you.

Several months ago I asked my readers how they felt about the name Guillaume for an antagonist in the novel and I received many excellent suggestions and opinions. So please sharpen up your imagination and pretend you are travelling through time…what do you see?

  1. Gosh. I’d like to help, Joanne. But it’s so hard for me to answer this because I am a mixed-race black woman and it’s hard to decide on a place and time in the western world where such a person would have been safe from white slave-owners/oppressors. Good luck, though!

    • I appreciate what you are saying. Although I’m influenced by the romantic notion of going back to a particular time, as a female, I would not give up my jeans for a corset and long skirts.
