About the Book, The Lizzy Grey Chronicles
Lizzy Gray lives her with grandmother in a Tudor Estate that looks as though it were transported from England and planted in the Los Angeles Hills. Surrounded by every kind of Tudor or Elizabethan artifact or furniture Lizzy has a hard time relating to the present world. Even her grandmother seems transported from another era.
Lizzy’s mother abandoned her three years ago. As for a father, that’s another secret that her mother took with her when she made her live alone, with her grandmother.
On her sixteenth birthday, Lizzy’s mom comes home, but not to necessarily visit, instead she came to deliver an inheritance that every daughter receives on her sixteenth birthday, a watch brooch.
The watch-brooch supernaturally travels her to three days before Lady Jane loses her life for her faith. In those three days, Lizzy comes face to face with living faith, worth dying for.
Relationships are redeemed, secrets revealed and family faith recovered.
Time travel takes on many forms. Memory is one of its best vehicles. Everyone has had memories that are so vivid that they make you feel in the present: the goosebumps, smells, and emotion make you feel like you just time traveled.
One of my most precious time travel experiences happened when I held my first grand-daughter, Makenna. As I gazed into her lovely face, I saw my daughter 20 years earlier in my arms for the first time. I felt the love flow from my heart into Kate’s and then again into my grand-daughters heart. We were instantly connected by memory and love and future. You do immediately see them with a future. You can’t help it, but you know you have to give that future to Him who made it and planned it before the foundations of the world.
Some of my favorite time travel novels are, A Wrinkle in Time Series, by Madeleine L’Engle, Somewhere in Time, by Richard Matheson, The Time Machine, by H.G. Wells. Loved Jules Verne books especially, Journey to the Center of the Earth. All incredible! There are so many more!
My favorite television show, It’s About Time, was a silly half-hour sitcom-I can still remember the diddy that introduced it.
It’s about time, it’s about space,
About two men in the strangest place.
It’s about time, it’s about flight –
Traveling faster than the speed of light.
And when Star Trek had a series about time travel, there wasn’t much that could match it. And Time Tunnel, with the lovely James Darren, saw every episode.
What about the wildly thrilling, historic and love story movies, like Timeline. That movie had it all. Or, Somewhere in Time, with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour: they just don’t make them like that anymore. Peggy Sue Got Married was another good one. But the four movies of Back to the Future, took us to the past and future. So much fun!
Mirrors, clocks, gadgets, time warps, black holes, memory, and DeLoreans you name it, have been used to facilitate time travel.
I used a watch. I tried to make my watch unique, one of a kind. Strange, but not too strange, just kind of other-worldly, but made with things of the earth too. And since there is such an antique time warp feel to my story, I decided it would be futuristic with an antiquated twist.
Lamentations 3:22-24- The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.” My grand-daughter Coco just...
Hope is a rare commodity these days. With the New Year in just a couple of days, I think hope is something to ponder. Not just for ourselves, but for others too. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17-May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his...
This is Hard! My dear sweet daughter, Kiley, lost her baby last night. She miscarried. Here is the last picture of our “Little Bean” that was taken weeks ago. This little one does not look like this now in heaven. I am convinced of this. But, he/she is a cute...
Have you seen the video of the cat named Maru who loves to lay and just simply be in a box? It’s very funny and makes me giggle when I see this silly cat squeeze his fat furry body into any box left by his master. Of course, you know me, I began wondering how it...
The Morning after I wrote the blog about grousing, we woke up to find 8 inches of water pouring into our basement from a broken pipe outside in the yard. The work is not finished yet, but well on its way-That was almost two months ago. I’ve been afraid to blog ever...
