9780385738385: Timeless

When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.
 
Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.

From the Author:

A Letter from Author Alexandra Monir

My Writing Day
Wherever I may be, my writing day always begins with slipping on my headphones and listening to a song. The music sets the mood, and through the guitar strings, piano keys, and vocals, I’m lifted out of the here and now. Suddenly the scenes come together in my mind—I can see my characters, I can hear their words. That’s the moment when everything feels natural, and I find that I can’t stop typing.

Another element that jumpstarts my imagination is scenery. I’ve definitely done my fair share of writing on the couch in my apartment—but some of the most magical moments happened when I was somewhere unfamiliar and inspiring. I visited Newport, Rhode Island to research the grand Gilded Age homes that figure prominently in my book. I’ll never forget the experience of coming back to the Hotel Viking after a day of visiting these mansions from the past, and then sitting down to write in my historic hotel room. It was so easy to feel like I was in the Gilded Age world that I was writing about. Then, when I went on another solo writing trip and spent a night at America’s oldest inn, the Beekman Arms, I could almost feel the ghosts of centuries past around me. Normally that would really creep me out—but not when I’m writing a supernatural story! I welcomed the ghosts then.

The truth is that no day of writing is the same—each day presents its own unique challenges and victories. As a true Gemini, I think it’s that unpredictability, the excitement of not knowing what the page will look like until it’s been written, that keeps me hooked. And yet when I sit down in front of the computer and slip on my headphones, the process is so familiar, it has that wonderfully warm feeling of coming home.
