Author Kathleen Andrews Davisabout this book: Becoming a grandparent does strange things to you. You can't get enough of those kids and you want to do everything you can for them, but you also know they are going to be around a lot longer than you, and you want them to remember you. That was the catalyst for my writing Emerson's Attic, The Blue Velvet. I wanted to leave a legacy for my granddaughter and I decided to make it a legacy of words.

I wrote the book even before our "Emerson" was born because once I started I couldn't stop. Yes, it will be a while until she can read it herself but I had to try to see if I could do it. Guess what? I loved writing this book.

Emerson McBride is a time traveler, but not by choice. She would much rather stay home with her friends; however, when it happens, it happens. In The Blue Velvet, Emerson is taken back to Victorian England. I wanted to write about a young girl who could think on her feet and make responsible decisions. She has to adapt to life in a new place and time without the aid of electronics. I will tell you, Emerson is a smart and brave girl. There is a reason she's there and I won't give it away…you'll have to read the book.

This time and place was an easy choice for me because my ancestors immigrated from England, I have been there and love everything about England, and I like the Victorian period, so it was a no brainer.

Writing The Blue Velvet was so much fun that I have decided to make it a series and the second book is well on it's way to publication. Keep an eye out for Smoke and Mirrors.

Emerson's Attic, The Blue Velvet is available at Amazon in e-book and paperback.
