I have not been writing much recently. Book #3, tentatively entitled "Ticking: Finding Jesus", is about 85% complete. The chrononauts travel back to ancient Galilee to see if Jesus Christ actually existed. They may have underestimated the influence of the Roman Legion at the time, as one of them is forced to join what some have called the greatest army in history.
The reason for not writing is that I had heart surgery to repair a valve on September 28. I was at home, recovering, when I experienced atrial fibrillation (a “not unusual” result of this type of surgery). I had two cardioversions (electric paddles to the heart) done to correct the heart rhythm. But still I felt awful. Finally, the doctors drained fluid from the sac that surrounds the heart, some 750 mls apparently.
I am feeling much better now, but I swear that I saw the Son of God smiling at me at some time during my hospital stay. Might that have some bearing on the plot for "Ticking: Finding Jesus"?
