Now that we're happily into June I almost have time to stop and take a breath. For five solid weeks my husband and I have been working morning to night to get our rather large house ready to sell. That's a cleaning, fixing, purging process that repeats and repeats and repeats.
I wake up doing this:
Just imagine a middle-aged woman going up and down ladders and chairs instead and not being creative at all.
And go to bed like this:
Have you ever downsized? #somuchwork
Even with this going on, I managed to release the 7th book in the Ginger Gold Mystery series. Whoot! Seven books in just over a year! You can understand why I need to take a little time off from writing at the moment, but never fear, there are new books to come.
Last week we discussed Transhumanism and AI's. This week we'll be delving into quantum mechanics. Sounds intimidating doesn't it? So much has been written on the topic that I'm still learning myself!
Here are some quick facts for those of you who are like me and don't enjoy complicated equations:
If you're confused - don't worry. You may want to watch this PBS documentary (click here). It's pretty long - but worth the watch!
Just wait - it gets crazier. A key factor of quantum physics is the idea of alternate universes.
Quantum physics founder, Hugh Everett, surmised that according to the rules of quantum mechanics there are an infinite number of parallel universes. I explored the idea of multiple universes in my Nursery Rhyme Mystery series. The series begins on a college campus where Marlow (a freshman nerd) finds himself entangled in an alternate reality. Only this alternate universe is much more threatening than the one he is accustomed to.
The Nursery Rhyme Mystery series is a fun read for all ages that combines mystery with a touch of romance. If you love Ginger Gold and gang I think you will enjoy Sage & Marlow too. The full series is currently enrolled in KINDLE UNLIMITED. If you're not already a member you can sign up for the free trial and read the Nursery Rhyme Mysteries FREE!
So what's an alternate universe?
Well, it turns out that's not such an easy question to answer. According to Space.com there are at least five different ways that a multi-universe could be possible.
What do you think of these theories? Which ones seem the most plausible to you?
Marlow's just a regular geeky college freshman with little to no experience with girls, so when he has a semi-flirtatious chat with a cute girl online, it's almost more than his nerves can handle.
Then the girl is murdered.
Or is she?
Marlow finds himself teamed up with intelligent and savvy Sage Farrell, a girl so far out of his league he feels blinded in her presence - literally - damned glasses! Together they work to find the identity of @gingerbreadman. Can they stop the killer before he strikes in more worlds than one?
Check out Murder at Feathers & Flair in audio!
I'm super stoked about Ginger Gold in audio. The series has a lot of international characters and my fab narrator, Elizabeth Klett, nails them. So fun! Click on the link to listen to a sample.
