Although this displaced southerner is physically confined to the planet and the present in the Pacific Northwest rainforest, her imagination isn’t. Both the lure of the past and the mystery of the future inspire plots for the historian and Twilight Zone junkie.
With an unquenchable desire to harness time—to bend it and traverse it at will, Kay crafts alternate realities with the cosmic clash between fact and fiction. Plunging into eras with the delicacy of a high dive cannonball, Kay unleashes her characters to explore the unknown and sneaks along for the ride.
She believes her ardor for adventure and storytelling is genetic. As the great-granddaughter of a Civil War veteran who survived Pickett’s Charge and daughter of a sassy Army nurse bride and a WWII vet who survived Guadalcanal, Kay credits her Cherokee and Scotch-Irish roots for her passion for history.
Teamed with her real-life Rogue and fellow historian husband, Kay presses on with her quest to sample the wonder of the planet past, present, and future. Armed with a mega-dose of imagination, each day begins with a sterling adventure.
Yesterday, she was spelunking in bat-filled caves. Today, she is crawling through the ruins of an ancient castle, perched high above the sparkling Rhine River. And, tomorrow? Continuing her research on her next book TIME FUGUE, Kay’s planning to drop in on the 1300s to check out the Black Death.
Want to come along? TIME FUGUE excerpt
"Welcome to our New Faces column, where we're pleased to introduce some of the debut authors in the romance publishing field. This time we're visiting with Kay Austin, whose first release is the time-travel romance Time Rogues, from Dorchester's Lovespell line."
I'm very excited about Time Transit. It's Maude and Gil's hotter than hot love story and it's a cliffhanger from the first line in the prologue.
Time Transit Excerpt:
Earth’s Core 2153
I’m dead. I’m still breathing but I’m also gut-shot, bleeding, hurting, and alone. If help is on the way, it won’t get here in time. I’m doomed.
