Author Interview - Heather Albano

Morning All,

 Today, I have Heather Albano, the author of Timepiece answering a few questions to us.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
It has been described as “a boomerang flung through the 1800's” in which the main character is “flipped back and forth through time like a pancake,” and it has both the Duke of Wellington and Frankenstein’s monster in it.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
People I don’t know message me on social media to tell me they liked it. And I walk around on clouds for the rest of the day.

If you could be one of the Greek Gods, which would it be and why?
Athena. She is the goddess of both wisdom and battle, which any way you look at it is a very interesting combination.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Fortunately for me, I live pretty close already. I’ve traveled pretty extensively, and always find myself walking through other cities thinking, “This is great... but I still like Boston best.”

That said, I would love to spend a year in Venice. Most fascinating place I’ve ever been.

What is your favorite Quote?
“Writing a novel is like driving your car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the entire journey that way.” - E. L. Doctorow.

If you were a super hero what would your kryptonite be?
Spider silk. I absolutely loathe the feeling of spiderwebs on my skin.

In your wildest dreams, which author would you love to co-author a book with?
In my wildest dreams, they are all so much better at this than I am, so the idea is kind of intimidating, but... I would love to work with either Lois McMaster Bujold or Tim Powers. I aspire to write the kind of “breathless adventure wrapped around a watertight plot with compelling characters” that the two of them are known for.

Wishing Timepiece all success
Abhishek Boinapalli
