ELMO’S SOJOURN, MORE QUESTIONS

5. Your time machine seemed very well thought out – is it based on something in theoretical science.

The time machine is a product of my imagination.

While I was in college, there was a guy in the dorm who built a tesla coil.  You could pull something like a quarter million volts to your finger, but since the amperage was low, you survived.  I had to get that thing into a story.

 

6. How do you personally relate to your main character in your story?

I was a scientist for 34 years, but a biologist not a physicist.  I love science and the opportunity it gives you to discover something new, when all the parts of a puzzle suddenly come together.  I share the wonder Elmo has for science.

 

7. How challenging was it to build your alien landscapes and creatures?

I have a very active imagination so it was really quite easy.  But the creatures changed along the way.  The first creature that comes through Elmo’s machine was going to be the dominant creature on Roth, but of course that changed.  Then Valmid was going to be a sinister being and that changed.  Since I needed some conflict, Gylex came into being and I could just picture what it looked like.

 

8. What theme do you want to convey to your readers?

I think, as with most science fiction, I want to create adventure and the wonder of the unknown.
