Kim Velk loves bicycles, typewriters and 1920s music. So she decided to write a time travel adventure that takes readers on a wild ride to the 1920s with a fifteen year old boy. It took her six years to complete her debut work, but it was worth it. As our author of the day, Velk chats about her Up, Back and Away, why she wrote it and reveals exactly how much research went into it.
