Feisty Tabatha, a struggling artist, and Milt, an awkward Science professor set off on a journey to the future. What was supposed to be fun soon turns quite intense when they make discoveries about their future selves and end up on other “detours.” The two set events into action that may save one life, yet destroy another. Can these friends of completely different mindsets agree on a course of action? Can Tabatha stick to Milt’s rules of time travel? Both Milt and Tabatha struggle to witness and not participate in a place and time that is not yet their own.

Amid the backdrop of a future that reveals great wonders and horrors, Tabatha and Milt must resist the temptation to use discoveries from future technology to aid them when they return to the present. Detours in Time starts as a fantastic escape and grows to present many moral dilemmas and surprises that can either destroy the strongest bond or bring two people closer.

"Do you remember telling me once, Milt, that all possibilities existed within any given moment, but the possibility we get to live is the one we choose?"

He nodded. "Yes, I was explaining the theory of multi-verses."

She went on, "And that all other possibilities still exist, we just won't live with them in our reality?"

He nodded again.

"Maybe that's the case with Brandon, and his parents." Milt turned away, his mouth turned down at the corners. If this was the closest he ever would get to losing a child, it sure was painful enough. And to think, it was all his own doing. Why did I even need to go there anyway? He thought. Why did I HAVE to know? What the hell is wrong with me? Now I get the knowledge that I may have screwed up that very future, that dream of what might have been. For it was all just a dream, wasn't it? The future did not exist yet. All they had seen, was a future based on a trajectory of events projected from the moment they left in 1997. Obviously Pinky was still able to be optimistic about the future to come, and how it may have been altered.

Dreaming was fun. But this was no dream. Tabitha certainly could not sleep. The wheels were spinning, and an elaborate dream turned into a plan. She held the wrench tightly, praying Milt would not awake, though a prayer was not necessary. He was in a deep sleep that was the envy of many a new parent. It seemed so unfair to her.

She got up, tiptoed to the wall and switched on the ceiling fan, adjusting it to high power. White noise. Peter wasn’t making a sound. She moved stealthily to the laundry basket full of fresh, clean clothes that no one had folded or put away. Three pairs of underwear, two spare t-shirts, two pairs of socks. A pair of blue jeans. Gauze for binding, if needed, if there possibly was anything left of her nursing capabilities. Her jacket was in the hall closet. It might be necessary. Or not.

She quietly closed the bedroom door. Stopping at Peter’s doorway, she saw the motionless form in the crib. A hand moved, a fist opening and closing. She remembered all the movement he made while in her belly. A smile touched upon her lips. He won’t know I’m gone. Will he?

In the spare bathroom, she grabbed some cleaning wipes, deodorant, bra liners (in case of leaks), and a bar of soap. On second thought, she also grabbed some more gauze, in case of more drastic leaks. New moms could not travel light. The Allen wrench “key” waited in her pocket. She passed by the kitchen, stopping to take a bite of the leftover dinner. It was good, but she moved on, gliding out to the garage, and got the remainder of her supplies, feeling in her pocket for the Allen wrench again.

This was crazy. How could she do this to them? This is just for me, she thought. How often do I do anything like that anymore? Heck, I’m even questioning my own marriage. I just need a break.
