#Interview with Janie Emaus, author of #NewRelease The Time Traveling Matchmaker @Janie_Emaus @GoddessFish #TimeTravel #RomanceBooks

The Time Traveling Matchmaker by Janie Emaus released yesterday in the Time Travel romance genre.

In The Time Traveling Matchmaker, love takes on a new meaning when soul mates are brought together through time and space.

Like every goal-oriented twenty-something, Jessica Singleton, an aspiring filmmaker, is obsessed with finding her future as quickly as possible. What she doesn’t know is that the future is obsessed with finding her, too. Renn Porter, an agent with Time Traveling Matchmaker’s Inc, blasts back in time – and into her life- in order to transport Jessica to the soul mate who has paid for this service…in the future. But things turn dangerous when it’s revealed that Renn has been sent after his own soul mate.

Caught between two times, Jessica and Renn must struggle to stay alive. Falling in love is the biggest risk either of them has ever taken – because, as they are destined to learn, the very existence of Time Traveling Matchmakers, Inc. rests in Jessica’s hands.





Ever was a word that didn’t do well alone. It goes much better with happily and after. The way my life used to be. The way I thought it never would be again after David, and then along came Renn. And the world opened up, even better than before. 

His lips. His touch. His eyes. His voice. There wasn’t room in my mind for thoughts of anything else. 

It didn’t matter that he claimed he came from the future. Maybe he did. So many things in this world defy logic. Especially love. 

Please, God, bring him back to me. 

My stomach growled. I opened the fridge again and picked up the healthiest looking apple, one without any bruises. 

The apple tasted sour. I spit the skin into my hand and tossed the whole thing in the trash. The fabric in my pocket grew warm. 


I spun around. Renn leaned against the wall, his trench coat open to expose a silky blue shirt. His lemony scent drifted into the room. 

“It’s you,” I said, stating the obvious and feeling foolish for doing so. 

His smile filled me with lightness. 

“It’s me,” he said, as if he’d just returned from the store. In fact, he held a bag of donuts. 

Donuts! He vanishes out of the bathroom and materializes out of thin air the next day with donuts? 

A second later, the bag fell to the ground, and I was in his arms, kissing him. Putting the ever back into my life.

What was the most challenging part of writing this book?

For me, the most challenging part was figuring out the age of  Jessica, my protagonist At the time I started the story, I was immersed in the Young Adult world. But as I was writing a first draft, Jessica kept telling me that no one in high school is ready to marry and live “happily ever after” with their soul mate. The New Adult genre had hit the book world, so I made her a bit older. That still didn’t seem right to Jessica. She wanted to be turning thirty. Of course, she was right. My characters always are! 

But I do have to say, that the Pandemic was also a challenging situation. I sold the book in early 2020 with an estimated release date for early 2021. But Covid wreaked havoc with my editor and the date kept getting pushed back and back. I’m easy going and went with the flow of things. Until finally this July, The Time Traveling Matchmaker will be available.
