Irina will be first in line if recreational time travel ever becomes a reality, but for now, she must make do with flights of the imagination, living vicariously through her characters. Irina particularly enjoys sending her characters into the past where they must use modern-day sensibilities and skills to navigate a volatile political and social landscape, and find a way to survive in a time they've only read about.
Irina also has an interest in the paranormal, and she explores some of these themes in her books, bringing her characters face to face with phenomena they didn't think existed and have no idea how to handle.
Irina has written multiple books, including two time-travel series. Please visit Irina Shapiro at www.irinashapiro.com
