Miranda Doerfler Guest Reviews

 Today we welcome Miranda Doerfler author of Brimstone Nightmares and Modern-Day Horrors to the blog today to share her favorite reads. So read on and see if you have the same taste in reads.

In my so-far-short life, unfortunately, I have not read many books. Not as many as I’d like, anyway. I am a slow reader and it takes me months to get through a single book. When I can find the time, however, I read Michael Crichton.

Crichton is fairly well-known – or, at least, one of his novels is; Jurassic Park. In high school, I read Jurassic Park for a creative writing project. I had seen my parents’ copy of the book lying around the house since I was little and always planned on reading it. This assignment was the perfect opportunity. I fell in love with the book (and the man) instantly. I have never read a book so quickly, nor have I ever appreciated one in such a capacity. It was truly a turning point in my life, and by the end of that semester, I was set on pursuing a career as a writer. I wanted someone to read my book and feel that it changed their life.

At the moment, I am reading Timeline. A group of young scientists and archaeologists with an interest in medieval times excavate the remains of an old town - Castelgard and La Roque - in France. When their mentor vanishes after visiting with the company funding their excavation, they investigate, only to find out that their mentor has travelled back in time to 1357 and is trapped there. The modern-day young scientists agree to time-travel to save their mentor, but will they be too late? Will they get trapped there, themselves? Will they die at the hands of vengeful lords or be rescued by heroic knights? These are the questions running through my mind as I plunge into the medieval world of Timeline and take a journey on which only Michael Crichton could send me.
