Words… they mean so much to me. I love the way they string together, I love the patterns and the colours, I love the stories. I wanted to share some of the things bubbling around in my brain- and maybe flesh out some ideas? My first topic? Christian Fantasy.
I don’t mean interpretive fiction. I mean good old fashioned stories about magic and miracles. I love the concept of the ‘secret world’ a place where impossible things happen. I believe that people of faith are uniquely equipped to create incredible stories of faith and belief in the impossible- yet somehow, so many of us have run yelling in the opposite direction.
I want to change that. I want to change the way the world sees christian fantasy and particularly the way we see ourselves. I want to break the rules. I want to bring a little bit of wonder back into the world of faith.
But first I just want to write a good story. Something that isn’t tedious or preachy, something that young teens regardless of their background (and hopefully a few adults) will want to get lost in.
And that’s where my Gateworld books come in. Stay tuned!
