DJ: Hey David! Thanks for agreeing to do this interview!
For readers who aren’t familiar with you, could you tell us a little about yourself?
David L. Golemon: Thank you DJ for having me. David L. Golemon is not a very complicated person to get to know. I raised three great children on my own since they were very small, so I actually do know the horrors and fears of parenting. I am a veteran of the United States Army and former manufacturing specialist for a few of the larger corporations in the world. After many years of the real world, I felt it was time to move on and create worlds of my own, worlds I can more readily understand more than the one in which we live, thus, here I am many years later still developing that new world, and to be honest with you DJ, a world which is far better to handle than the current real world we find ourselves.
DJ: What is The Traveler about?
David: The Traveler was one of my more daunting tales as far as scientific research was concerned. When penning a novel about deep science, such as time travel, I felt most stories in that genre lacked realism as far the means in which to achieve it. The Traveler is a story about friendship and loyalty. The ways, lengths and means friends and colleagues will go to protect and save those they love. The story takes you from World War II Germany and the concentration camps, to a world three hundred thousand years in the past. It’s about loyalty to those that have fallen in the service of their country and the efforts of those left behind to assure those lost have not sacrificed their lives in vain. The Traveler was a tale close to my heart because it involved many varying theories on the impossibility of time travel. The real Traveler in the story is not who my loyal followers of the series thought it would be about, but another who made the world of time travel open up to save those from the past. How a society can be cruel and murderous to those individuals who advance ideas that most of the world could never understand and are condemned for that reason. The Traveler is about hope and the people who have the courage to dream. Continue reading
