L. E. Leveille
Author of Time-Travel and Time-Slip Romance
You're probably wondering why I added this page to my website. It's because I also write time-travel romance with a bit of suspense.
I was drawn to time-travel years ago when I got hooked on June Lund Shiplett; Eugenia Riley; Barbara Bretton; Jude Devereaux and several others. I decided I wanted to write one of my own, and I did. I started it 28 years ago. Yes, nearly 30 years ago. It's original title was "A Time to Smile", but it's been revamped and retitled to "Finding Eden." It now sits s in a box until I decide to pull it back out and revise it. The essence of my original story is still there. I hope I can publish it by the end of this year, or early 2022. I hope you'll want to go on this extended journey with me as I write time-travels with heart and suspense.
Kate arrives at 'Eden's Gate', a beautiful bed and breakfast in Bar Harbor, Maine. She's on a buying trip for her boutique store on the outskirts of Boston where her clientele are in search of unique items from the past. She shares this boutique with her best friend. Shortly after her arrival, Kate hears strange voices coming from a closed room which is forbidden to all guests of the home. Her first night, she hears the cries of a young woman and when she peers out the window, she sees what appears to be a woman in white running towards the woods on the edge of the property. Everything about Eden's Gate is strange yet she feels as though she's been there before. Kate has suffered from nightmares for several months and doesn't understand why she's dreaming of the same man reaching out to her and hearing the cries of a baby on the wind. She believes her dreams are telling her something. One night, during a horrible thunderstorm, she's swept back in time to 1906 and finds herself at Eden's Gate when it was new. She meets the enigmatic owner, Stephen Townsend, who claims to be her husband and that she had been gone for a year, believed to have died by suicide. While trying to find a way to her own time, she discovers she's falling in love with Stephen and that someone has a secret they will kill for!

Time of the Moon
Time of the Moon is more of a time-slip story than a time-travel. Lauren, my heroine is asked by her beloved grandmother to go to the abandoned house on the next full moon because "someone waits for her there." Days after her Gram passes away, Lauren feels compelled to go to the derelict house in the woods. In the past, she and her grandmother had often visited the house and Lauren never feared it.
