Today I’m asking M. Pax, author of Beyond the Edge, the question: Why do you write science fiction?
M. Pax: Wonder and curiosity. What’s out there? There’s no way to know in my lifetime, Voyager just recently left the solar system. I can imagine it, though, and travel the stars that way.
Inspiring the words she writes, she spends her summers as a star guide at Pine Mountain Observatory in stunning Central Oregon where she lives with the Husband Unit and two demanding cats. She writes science fiction and fantasy mostly. You can find out more by visiting her at:

Beyond the Edge Blurb:
Some truths are better left unfound.
For two years Craze’s dear friend, Lepsi, has been missing. The murmurings of a haunted spaceship might be a message and may mean his old pal isn’t dead. The possibility spurs Craze and Captain Talos to travel to uncharted worlds, searching. Out there, in an unfamiliar region of the galaxy beyond the Backworlds, they stumble upon a terrible truth.
Meanwhile, Rainly remains on Pardeep Station as acting planetlord, dealing with the discovery of her lover’s dark and brutal past. Alone and questioning her judgment, her introspection unlocks more than heartache. Latent protocols in her cybernetics activate, forcing her to face a sinister secret of her own.
In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendents to survive in a harsh universe.
This is the fourth book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

And now, PK Hrezo is asking me this question as part of her blog hop:
If you could walk into a time travel agency, where and when would you book your
time trip to, and why?
This is a tough one! I’d want to travel into the future . . . say, 75 years from now. The zombie apocalypse should’ve happened by then, right?
Or there’s always going back to the past . . . I’d shoot for 13 years ago. I’m okay with missing the first 5 months after Kid #1 was born, but everything after that I’d love to relive. My two babies have grown up waaay toooo fast 😦
If time travel appeals to you, then you might want to check out this book:

Good answer M Pax!
Great cover for PK!
I’d love to see my kid grow up all over again, very thoughtful.
Congrats to Mary and PK!!
zombie apocalypse!! 😉
Time Travel agency, what a great idea! Hmm, where would I go… This’ll be totally for personal gain but I’d get a hold of the winning lotto mega million numbers so I’d wouldn’t have to work & write to my heart’s content…naturally 😉
CONGRATS to Pk! Great cover! Looking forward to reading this book.
Both great covers. I love Mary’s Backworld Series. Butterman sounds exciting. I love the idea of a time-travel vacation.
Oh wow… rewatching your kids’ birth would be mind-boggling. I’d love to relive it on the outside and not have to go thru the pain again. lol
Thank you so much for joining in, Jamie! And congrats to Mary!!
Good luck to M PAX and PK! Both books look and sound great!
Thank you for posting today, Jamie! Aww, I love your time travel. Very sweet. Congrats to PK.
Your time trip is a little similar to mine. 😉 Witnessing childhoods, whether it’s our children or our own, would be a delight. 🙂
Love your answer, Mary. I’d like to know what’s out there, but it probably won’t happen in my lifetime. Exciting to think about, though 🙂
Jamie, I’d love to time travel back to Victorian times – wouldn’t want to stay, though.
Pk, I’m seeing you everywhere! Congrats, your books sounds awesome.
Wonder and curiosity drives me too. Great answer, Mary!
And yes, the zombie apocalypse should hopefully be over by then. Heh.
The the zombie apocalypse has already happened, they should all be dead by that time…
Congratulations to Mary and PK!
Congrats Mary and PK…. Hi, Jamie!
Yeah; I agree with M Pax: some truths are better left unfound. Awesome.
In my time travel, I want to see things in the past I missed, but if doesn’t have to be world changing 🙂
I love the premise of this book! I’d want to travel far into the future. It would probably blow my mind, and then I’d be even more grateful for my day to day existence when I came back. 🙂 This is definitely a book I’ll read.
