Lara Crane is stuck in her mind, in an indefinite stream of timelines where her life is perfect, just the way she wants it to be.
But it's not real. It's all made up to give those who want to use time travel for their own personal ambitions. To give time to finish their experiments and turn Lara into a deadly time travel assassin.
If Lara wants to survive and to stop them, she needs to risk her own mind and soul to get out of a prison so perfect it completes the one dream Lara has always had.
Rex Montgomery is the chief villain in the Rewind Agency series and Lara Crane is the hero in the story. Despite their better judgement, they have agreed to interview each other in a segment we have entitled When We Are Not Trying to Kill Each Other.
Rex The Interviewer: Hero of the story. That has a nice ring to it, but it doesn’t exactly ring true, does it?
Lara: *cross arms*
Rex: Don’t be hostile, it’s true. You used time travel to save your mother’s life and now you’re locked in a cage. Giving me all the power. We wouldn’t be here if not for your little parlor trick.
Lara: *dryly* Wow. I hadn’t thought of that before. You are so smart, Rex.
Rex: Don’t be cute.
Lara: Do you have an actual question in there somewhere?
Rex: Fine. Pancakes or waffles?
Lara: That’s what you want to ask me? What I like for breakfast. Fine. Both.
Rex: You have to pick one or another. You can’t have both.
Lara: I’m Lara Crane, I like both. I have both. I’ll just eat waffles and then go back in time so I can eat pancakes.
Rex: I have a feeling you’re not taking this very seriously…
Lara: Then ask me a serious question.
Rex: You’ve been locked in a cage for two years. How does that feel?
Lara: Not well. I feel violated. Controlled. Desperate. Desperate to get my hands around your neck and squeeze you until your eyes pop. But I can’t show you my anger. I can’t let you get to me. I have to be better than that. Smarter than you if I’m ever going to find a way out of this cage. Happy? Is that what you wanted to hear?
Rex: *sneers* It’ll do.
About the Author:
I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.
But instead, I'll say I don't want to write like everyone else. I don't want to craft stories you've read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you've ever read.
I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.
If you do, then I'll have succeeded. If not, I'll keep trying.
