We have an interview today with a special guest. The hero of Amy Jarecki’s epic two-book time travel romance, A HERO ACROSS TIME.
Hello sir knight, please tell us your full name.
William Wallace, m’lady
Do you have a nickname?
None that I’d own up to—though my closest allies call me Willy.
What is one word best describes you?
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Same as always. Chausses, a quilted arming doublet under my hauberk, atop that a surcoat with the crest of Scotland emblazoned across the front. Over my shoulder is my sword belt. I wield the two-handed sword—six pounds and five feet long it is. On my left hip I wear my dirk. I have daggers in my hose and up each sleeve. A man never kens when a backstabber will sneak up and try to run a blade across his throat.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Och aye, lass.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Not much in these times, though I oft laugh when I’m with Lady Eva. Her odd twists of phrase can tickle me at the oddest moments.
What is your favorite dessert?
No question there: plum pudding.
What is your favorite drink?
A good tot of whisky goes down well, I’d reckon.
What is your greatest fear?
A man in my position cannot afford to fear…though if I had to choose something it would be failure.
What is your favorite color?
Green like the hills of Scotland—they remind me of Eva’s eyes.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
I beg your pardon?
What is the perfect romantic date?
Och, in my time, a man courts a woman. But I’d have to say a feast in Stirling Castle’s great hall, followed by dancing and wine, and topped with a stroll alone atop the wall-walk. I might even steal a wee kiss if I were to be so fortunate.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Pardon me, m’lady, but a warrior would never admit to being ticklish.
What’s your favorite smell? What does it remind you of?
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
*William scratches his head* I believe the word you used was woman. Mm.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
I never thought I would—I was intended for the priesthood, but the day that redheaded woman walked into my life, she claimed my heart forever.
What is one word best describes her?
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Aye, books one and two are about my story, and book three is about my son and is up for pre-order now (October 4th release): The Time Traveler’s Christmas.

Can history rewrite itself? In this tale of breathtaking love and heartbreaking farewells, hope is but a fleeting whisper.
RISE OF A LEGEND:
Awaking to the sharp point of a madman’s sword, journalist Eva MacKay is hurled into the midst of a bloody thirteenth century battle. Just when certain death is eminent, brutal arms surround the lass, dragging her deeper into unknown terror.
When Eva realizes she’s been hauled to the hideout of rebel William Wallace, a revelation dawns—she’s landed the story of a lifetime—if she can stay alive and find a way home to tell her tale. What she doesn’t count on is her mounting chemistry with the greatest legend Scotland has ever known…or the absolute love swelling in her heart.
IN THE KINDOM’S NAME:
After his success at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, William Wallace becomes Guardian of Scotland and is thrown into the machinations of court. But when disaster strikes, the love of his life, Eva MacKay, is hurled back to the twenty first century. Frantically she tries to return, only to face failure with her every attempt. In this tale of breathtaking love and heartbreaking farewells, destiny twists and turns until all hope expires…But does it?
