Goodreads asked Decker Schutt:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Decker Schutt My most recent book is called "Time," but that's just a working title. I have always wanted to write a story that involved time travel, but I was never able to think of a device that, for me, was acceptable.

I have read many time travel stories, and I can't think of one device that made sense even to a small degree. One night I was watching a television show about theories for parallel universes, and I saw something that gave me my device.

From there, it took me about a month to have a good outline. Now I'm 18 chapters into a first draft. When it's finished, it should be about 28 or 30 chapters and roughly 80,000 words. I hope.
