Before Anne After

By James Paddock

Hybrid & other | Paperback, eBook


It’s July, 1987. Through a series of small errors and oversights – a missed phone message, an unlocked high-security door, a lax in protocol, a falling purse – eight-month pregnant Annabelle Waring unknowingly stumbles into her husband’s time-travel experiment. She awakens in a 1943 Charleston Navy Shipyard barracks with no memory of the event. Her existence and her sanity become questionable; if not for her newborn baby and a Charleston, South Carolina police officer, she would certainly have checked herself into the funny farm. Her doctor, alias German spy, learns before she does that she is not only a time-traveler, but a highly educated woman in the field of nuclear science and World War II history. When she finally discovers her own secret, Anne must strive to get both her and her infant daughter home, even at the risk to her own life. Before Anne After starts you asking penetrating questions. “What would happen if man, or woman, could travel back? Would she be able to change history? Should she? Could she? And then what?” Imagine what the conversations would be like if she could meet with Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, who is in the middle of building the first atomic bomb, or Admiral Wilson Harris, as he prepares to observe the Philadelphia Experiment. Imagine if she could chat with Ernest Hemingway. Imagine what it would be like to be a modern, highly educated, highly intelligent woman in a 1943 society.

A retired graphic designer, James Paddock lives in Florida with his wife, Penny, a retired teacher. Novel writing, which keeps his sanity, if there is such a thing, is his passion and gives Penny, an avid reader, something to look forward to every few years. Together they claim five children and many grandchildren, and they, of course, are all beautiful and highly intelligent. James began his writing efforts in 1993 with the publication of his very first short story. He became hooked on the craft of storytelling and soon began longer works, completing his first novel, Elkhorn Mountain Menace, a story of terrorism in rural Montana, in August of 2001, only weeks before 9/11.
