The Time Traveling Matchmaker

by Janie Emaus


GENRE:   Time Travel Romance



In The Time Traveling Matchmaker, love takes on a new meaning when soul mates are brought together through time and space.

Like every goal-oriented twenty-something, Jessica Singleton, an aspiring filmmaker, is obsessed with finding her future as quickly as possible. What she doesn't know is that the future is obsessed with finding her, too. Renn Porter, an agent with Time Traveling Matchmaker's Inc, blasts back in time - and into her life- in order to transport Jessica to the soul mate who has paid for this service...in the future. But things turn dangerous when it's revealed that Renn has been sent after his own soul mate.

Caught between two times, Jessica and Renn must struggle to stay alive. Falling in love is the biggest risk either of them has ever taken - because, as they are destined to learn, the very existence of Time Traveling Matchmakers, Inc. rests in Jessica's hands.



Renn was coming toward me now and our eyes met. Fireworks went off inside my chest. He wasn’t avoiding me this time. This time I would learn the truth.

I raised my hand in a small wave.

“Watch out!” A bicyclist shouted as he sped down the sidewalk, completely out of control.

He clipped Renn’s shoulder, pushing him up against me. Renn’s coat got caught on the buckle of my purse. I heard a rip. No, more than that - I felt a rip down the center of my body, jagged like a piece of broken glass. Beneath my feet, the sidewalk tilted, and I lost my balance.

A strong a wind kept me from falling. Once steady, I turned to find Renn.

This all happened in a less than a second. And in that second Renn was gone. Vanished. Just like that. All that was left was his lemony scent. And the memory of his hand on my arm.

I didn’t see him in either direction. My head throbbed as if something heavy kept knocking into it.

A minute later a mother with her little girl walked past me. I knew before she stopped, that the little girl was going to bend down to tie her shoe. Time was going to repeat itself. Again.

She giggled, just like before. “Thanks, Mommy,” she said. “Tomorrow I can do it myself.”

I held on to the desire I had seen in Renn’s eyes, wondering about my tomorrow.



My Office

The design of my office could be considered “Organized Chaos.” I, and I alone, know where everything is located.

In fact, years ago, my grandson was scolded by his father for messing up my office. The truth was, I had piles of manuscripts gathered on my floor and I knew where every word was located.

I can’t always find the words in my head, but once on paper, I keep track of every syllable.

My office is located in the far corner of our 1300 sq foot mansion, with one window looking out to the fruit trees in our backyard and one looking at the neighbor’s basketball net.

I work on a laptop that sits on an old desk. To my left is my grandmother’s piano. There is also bed and bookshelf.  The room is currently being occupied my by nineteen-year-old granddaughter who is visiting from New York.  I believe her style is simply chaos!

Granted, it’s a small room, but big projects have been conceived within its walls. Of course, big projects come with big failures, and I’ve cried buckets of tears in that tiny space. I like to think of those tears as watering my will to never give up. Which I haven’t.

On the windowsill I have a plague saying PERSEVERANCE given to me by my daughter.

Next to that sits my college graduation photo. That young girl stares at me wishing she’d had my confidence. I tell her I wouldn’t be who am I today with her insecurities and doubts.

There is a photo of my best friend who passed away a few years ago. I often hear her voice as I write my next “masterpiece” or hit delete.

I have books written by my friends on the top shelf of my bookcase and photos of my family dispersed throughout the room.

Each morning, when I open the door, I inhale the positive vibrations and I know all is right with the world.
