A War in Too Many Worlds
The Time Traveler Professor
The secret diaries of John Patrick Scott pick up at the close of 1917. British intelligence sends Scott to work undercover in Berlin with his old partner-in-crime, Wendell Mackenzie, as his outside contact in Paris. Back on the Western Front, Scott discovered his ability to see the ghosts of the dead. Unsure if that’s a blessing or a curse, he takes this one-step further, employing spirits in the world of deception and intrigue. As the Russian monarchy crumbles and the Red Baron meets his final match, for Scott, true love is always beyond arm’s reach. His long-lost patrons and paramours, Sophia and Francois Poincaré, resurface but as potential enemies of the Crown.
Arthur Conan Doyle vows to retrieve his stolen time machine from H.G. Wells. Scott is still at odds with Doyle, who still refuses to publicly acknowledge his contributions for ghostwriting Sherlock Holmes, and Doyle encounters Harry Houdini in the most unlikely of places. Get ready for a wild ride.
Time Traveler Professor, Book Three: A War in Too Many Worlds, pairs murder, mayhem and mysticism in a mashup where The Lost World meets The Island of Doctor Moreau. Stay tuned for Book Four, The Story Beyond Time, the final book in this epic series.

Guest Post by Elizabeth Crowens — Author of A War in Too Many Worlds
- If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be? Why?
This sounds really silly, but I just turned in a 1940s Hollywood mystery to my agent and realized I used some of the same German last names from A War in Too Many Worlds in my other book. How embarrassing is that? I’d change them in my alternate history book. I guess it’s okay to use a longer and harder to pronounce name when scenes are supposed to take place in German rather than the United States. One of my critics is bound to figure it out. Don’t let it be you. LOL
- What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Spread the word. Post an excellent review on both Amazon and Goodreads, even if you won the book in a giveaway. I hate to emphasize algorithms and statistics, but that’s how their search engines work. The more reviews, the more an author will get discovered.
- What’s on your bucket list?
More travel. The pandemic put a real damper on that in the past two years, and it still has, but at least I got to visit Moscow and St. Petersburg before the Ukrainian invasion. I haven’t been overseas since and don’t feel all that comfortable yet. Looks doubtful if I’ll get to China anytime soon given the politics and the pandemic, and India was in dire shape. I still want to go to Tibet and Nepal. We’ll see…
What’s also on my bucket list, having the Time Traveler Professor series made into a streaming series like Doctor Who and being a creative advisor on the project. See below on the casting suggestions.
- Your book is a movie! Who’s in your dream cast?
Funny you should ask, because I’ve worked in the entertainment industry for many years, so I’m always thinking along those lines.
Arthur Conan Doyle – Hugh Jackman
H.G. Wells – Rufus Sewell, from The Man in the High Castle and Victoria.
Harry Houdini – Michael Weston, played Houdini in the short-lived series, Doyle and Houdini
John Patrick Scott – Our protagonist has been the hardest one to cast. Also when the first book in the series starts out in 1898, he ages, and Book Three, A War in Too Many Worlds starts in late 1917. For a younger version, I’ve had my eye on Robert Sheehan, who plays Klaus in The Umbrella Academy or Timothée Chalamet. For the older versions, Cillian Murphy, from Peaky Blinders. Both are Irish actors, but could play one who is Scottish.
Francois Poincaré – First choice: Sasha Baron Cohen, Second choice: Rami Malek. Francois reminded me a lot like Freddie Mercury. Obviously, Rami played him in Bohemian Rhapsody. Sasha was originally under consideration for that role.
Sophia Poincaré – possibly Marion Cotillard or Michelle Williams
Maria von Braun – Leonie Benesch, a German actress in the recent Around the World in Eighty Days and the television series Babylon Berlin and The Crown.
Leonora Offenbacher – Sarah Silverman
Rebecca Wells – Kate Winslet
Finneas “Finn” Fertle – Matt Smith, from Doctor Who and The Crown
Not sure about Helga, Max Pushkin, and Wendell Mackenzie.
Sounds like fun! Thanks for visiting my blog.
