If I Had A Time Machine

If I had a time machine and I could go visit anywhere in time I think I would want to go back to 13th century Wales when my main character, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd was alive.
To meet the man and talk to him would be amazing.
Back then they spoke in a very ancient form of Welsh.
Over the years Welsh has evolved to what it is today.
I have been taking a course in the language and I think if I had a chance to go back and talk to Llywelyn in Welsh it would be something I would never forget.
But alas we don’t have time machines and so I can only get to know the man through my writing.
It has been so wonderful writing about the man and his life and I am so happy I finely decided to do it.
I do wonder sometimes what it must have been like to rule back then.
I can only imagine as an author what it must have been like to have all that weight of everyone counting on you to make the right decisions and do the right thing.
The middle ages was such a turbulent time in history with different countries and kingdoms at each other’s throats all the time.
I just feel fortunate that through my writing I can get a glimpse of the lives of different historical figures and try to bring them to life once more on paper and in the minds of those who read my book.
