About the Author

Kelda Wells is a career physicist and college professor, educated at
the University of Toronto. Born and raised in Phoenix, New York,
she resides today in Toronto, Canada. Deriving inspiration from the
band Rush, author J.R.R. Tolkien, and a lifetime of studying physics,
Wells was naturally drawn to the possibilities of time travel that can
be explored through science fiction. Her literary work and her daily
life are similar in that they are both peppered by an imaginative view
of the world in which we live.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Whole Story. It's VERY difficult to talk much about the storyline without giving away too much. Suffice it to say that Kelda Wells has tackled one of the most difficult "standards" of Science Fiction...time travel... with great aplomb and a unique perspective. or..9... 11...238? The Whole Story is indeed as ambitious as it is engaging, even if it is a bit too short. At times I found myself wishing for some longer passages containing more detailed descriptions of the characters, the locations, the non-scientific if pretty much only so that my brain could have time to process some of the rather complicated yet fascinating concepts explored by the text. Wells "setting" is ENORMOUS,no less than space and time, stretching out backwards and forwards all at once on several occasionsThe Whole Story but she does manage to keep the "action" well paced and the science and logic explanations thorough enough for the thirsty without losing the casual reader in jargon real or invented. Wells tackles, with a genuine and obvious personal affection, some VERY large ideas rooted in some of the most cutting edge theoretical Physics and makes you WANT to know more which at its core is an accomplishment unto itself. The book isn't wallowing in science though. There are some intriguing new technologies, some really downright FASCINATING concepts and some genuine heart introduced in the story and Wells has a unique style which becomes very light and comfortable the further into the book you go. There are also a plethora of "Geek-ster Eggs" referencing pop culture, science fact, science fiction, and fantasy. A real delight. I certainly hope this isn't The Whole Story. I would very much like to hear about what the travelers were UP TO during those years "in-between" This is a great summer read, a great fall cabin read, a great guilty pleasure and I want more Ms. Wells! MORE!
