I'm very excited to bring you the first episode of Eating Medieval. Today's collaboration is with Kathy Opie, writer and cook/baker extraordinaire. Learn more about Kathy at the end of the blog. She and I have collaborated--and we expect to continue doing so--on exploring the world of medieval cuisine, such as Shawn, Niall, and all the medieval cast of The Blue Bells Chronicles would have experienced. I like research, and Kathy likes cooking, so I research and send the recipes to her, and she will be preparing them, and telling us about them!

Q: What drew you as an author to time travel?



Laura: I've long been drawn to time travel, most likely as a result of a very active childhood imagination and a few really good children's novels that involved time travel. In the Keep of Time was one, by Margaret J. Anderson, and Time for Andrew: A Ghost Story by Mary Downing Hahn was another. In the first, four children go into a deserted Scottish keep and come out into the dead of night in medieval Scotland. In the second, two boys who look alike, but have very different personalities, switch places in time, Andrew Tyler coming to1990 and Drew, his great nephew, going back to live Andrew's life in 1910. I consciously drew from In the Keep of Time in my own novel, but it also has some strong elements of Time for Andrew, in the concept of two very different men trading places and lives.

He was followed [...]
