How This Book Came About
As a keen genealogist, Thom was hitting a bit of a brick wall. He had just published his first novel and was trying to get some inspiration for a new story. He wondered what it would be like to be able to travel back in time to ask his ancestors about facts of their lives that would unblock the problems. He also recognised the potential problems - hence the Time Traveller's Dilemma was created.
