What if young Albert Einstein had a magical compass that inspired his theories of relativity?
In Einstein’s Compass: A YA Time Traveler Adventure, a young Albert is given a supernatural compass that allows him to travel through time and space, and find wisdom in other dimensions, including the lost city of Atlantis. But evil forces seek the power of the compass, including a monstrous, shape-shifting dragon from a different age. Can the compass protect Albert from such villainy?

Albert dangled a brass object on a silver chain, Johann’s eyes grew large. “Wow, what is that?” “It’s a compass. My father gave it to me. Have you ever seen one before?” Albert closed his eyes and held his precious gift to his chest. “Oh, I love my compass, and I love my Papa, who gave it to me.” The compass tingled against Albert’s chest. From inside the compass, a shimmer of light burst then radiated out about ten inches all around Albert’s hand. Albert felt the unexpected warmth and opened his eyes to find a rainbow projecting from the gems. Above the compass floated a three-dimensional number 33. Johann, struck with wonder, squealed, “Look at that!” In a dank underground cavern deep below Basel Germany’s the Black Forest, Raka stirred. The instant the number 33 had appeared above Albert’s compass, the power emanating from the device had awakened him from his centuries of slumber. Not since the fall of Jerusalem had the twelve-foot angel of darkness smelled such power. “The Shamir Stone! It’s been so long...”

What was your inspiration for writing Einstein’s Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure?
Grace Blair: I have always thought of Einstein as a fascinating person. He lived during the horse and buggy days where the light bulb was the most advanced technology. So how did he come up with his miracle theory given the circumstances of his life? So I asked myself the what if question.
What will happen if? Albert was a modern mystic in his time.
What will happen if? Einstein was a star child from Atlantis?
What will happen if? Albert was trying to remember what he did as a priest-scientist during his lifetime in Atlantis.
What kind of place was Atlantis? Who lived there? What were the people like in Atlantis? Maybe in Atlantis he had an evil twin brother.
Maybe there was an advanced civilization in Atlantis.
My book of fiction follows his biographical history from age six to twenty-six and adds a new level of mystical spirituality that he had help from a supernatural compass and mystical beings who assisted him in his heroes’ journey and his miracle theory. Einstein believed that we have to go beyond what we can see and measure in the physical world. My book, “Einstein’s Compass” goes beyond what we know and adds a possible fictional explanation for how he came up with his miracle theory and changed the world.
How did you choose the title?
Grace Blair: Young Albert received a compass from his father when he was a boy, which gave him the inspired vision to discover his miracle theory. The compass and his quest made me create the title and a compass that was more than a direction finder rather a vehicle of the supernatural, which Albert uses to discover his world changing theory.
Which character do you relate to the most?
Grace Blair: Albert’s friend Johann and his transformation in the story remind me of the changes I made in my life.
What scene, in the book, are you most proud of?
Grace Blair: The Prolog is one of the most important scenes as it is the foundation of the story. The completed chapter with historical research into Atlantis, Egypt, and Jerusalem, setting with the conflicts of people, dragons, and spiritual realms was a proud moment.
Where is your ideal place to write and/or read?
Grace Blair: I spend most of my day in my large cheery home office with mustard yellow walls. My computer faces the western window where I listen to Pandora radio dreaming of story. In addition, there are two bookcases, desk, several chairs, and a futon.
What new release are you looking forward to this coming 2019?
Grace Blair: My focus during 2019 is marketing Einstein’s Compass. I am doing research on a new novel “Jesus Christ’s Historical Family Business” what if Christ did not die on the cross. Publish date unknown.
Where is the favorite place you have ever travelled?
Grace Blair: I love the Hawaiian Islands and the presence of aloha.
What would you like to say to aspiring/beginning writers in the community?
Grace Blair: Take classes and learn the craft of writing. Understand that you will be responsible for marketing and promoting your work. Learn how social media can help you. Make friends in the writing community. Fellow writers will be your support system through all you learn and do. Be passionate and persistent, writing is a marathon not a sprint.
