We have the pleasure of meeting Troianne Lee Shelden, a character from Troianne (Time Travel Society, Book One). We'll get a chance to talk to the author, Crystal Miles Gauthier, in a bit, but now we have on the stage...Troianne!
Character Troianne Lee Shelden: Thank you. It's a pleasure to be here.
Troianne: I love history, my cat Diesel and hanging out with my friends at a restaurant in Louisville, KY. I love to go to the coffee shop and have a Carmel Latte.
Marie: Okay. So, what is your greatest dream, Troianne?
Troianne: To be the best I can be. To Marry Duncan Belles-Whitby and raise my daughter Diana with him.
Marie: What kind of person do you wish you could be? What is stopping you?
Troianne: I wish I could be a History professor, but I have traveled back in time to protect my infant daughter, so my career is on hold. I want to be a wife and mother and live in the past. I am done with the time of 2013 that I originally came from.
Marie: All right.
So...who was your first love?
Troianne: Well, I slept with my baby’s father one night; his name is Becker Love. But, Duncan is my real first and last love, he delivered my daughter Diana on a dark stormy night, when I traveled to the past.
Troianne: My daughter Diana was kidnapped by the evil Tardik from the third realm of hell. She was taken by people I trusted and thought were my friends. They boarded a ship to France with her in a carpet bag. I felt helpless, there was nothing I could do for my dear baby girl.
Troianne: My dream growing up was to be like my father, a History Professor. I have not achieved that dream because I became pregnant during a one night stand and traveled back in time.
Troianne: My late grandmother. MeeMaw.
Marie: Is there someone you pretend to like but really dislike?
Troianne: Misty Love-Donatescu, my daughter's aunt.
Troianne: To protect my child and to live with Duncan happily ever after.
Troianne: That my daughter Diana will not know how to handle her magical abilities and have to fight the evil Tardik in hell when she gets older.
Troianne: Thank you for having me.

Readers, I hope you all get a chance to pick up a copy of this awesome book!
Then left her alone.
Troianne Shelden is your everyday, intelligent student. With a love for history and a stunning figure, she's a catch for any guy. But after a night of passion with a handsome stranger, introduced to her by their mutual friends, she finds herself pregnant with nowhere to turn for advice.
Her parents passed away long ago and, soon after Troianne finds out she's pregnant, her grandmother passes, too. Left with a large inheritance, she looks forward to life with her new baby.
Fate takes the wheel when she goes into labor. On her way to the hospital, she passes out from intense pain and wakes up in a very different place...
The next thing she knows, she's hearing carriage wheels and a voice shouting for help. Lightning illuminates the inside of what was, only moments before, the back of a taxi cab. When the door opens, she's greeted by a handsome man dressed like he stepped out of the past.
In shock, she realizes that she's somehow traveled back in time--
...and she has no idea how to return.
