I believe everyone is on a quest in this life. Sometimes, though, we’re not aware of it. Or maybe we’re aware of it, but we’re not sure what we’re questing for.
And sometimes we find out that what we’ve been questing for isn’t something we really want to find after all.
And then there are the times when we nearly break our hearts against the obstacles that divide us from that holy grail or that kingdom of light or whatever it is that we long for most.
I’ve found that certain kinds of stories encourage me on my quest. May you find the same, even if they’re not my stories!
I love reading and writing speculative fiction. Like many people, I entered my first fantasy world through the famous wardrobe of The Chronicles of Narnia. Later, I visited other planets courtesy of C.S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, and journeyed to Middle Earth via The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Although I don’t claim to be a true geek, I’ve read The Silmarillion more than once.
I’m not too concerned about precise definitions of genre; for example, I see elements of fantasy in a wide range of stories, including G.K. Chesterton’s The Man Who Was Thursday and Charles’ Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
I hope you’ll enjoy my stories if you choose to read them.
