About

“At all ages, if [fantasy and myth] is used well by the author and meets the right reader, it has the same power: to generalize while remaining concrete, to present in palpable form not concepts or even experiences but whole classes of experience, and to throw off irrelevancies. But at its best it can do more; it can give us experiences we have never had and thus, instead of ‘commenting on life,’ can add to it.” – C.S. Lewis

This is the goal of So You Want to Write Christian Fantasy: To show how fantasy, both the writing and the reading of it, can add to the lives of Christians. As a writer and reader of fantasy, both Christian and non, I want to provide encouragement, tips, and general advice to fellow Christian fantasy writers. As an avid reader of fantasy staples such as C.S. Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia” and J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings,” it’s probably not a surprise that I write fantasy ranging from an epic high fantasy to urban fantasy. As a Graduate student, my posts will be confined to Fridays.

    You have great mentors in Lewis and Tolkien. I’m really looking forward to reading your novella when it comes out. I hope to be branching out into fantasy next year myself and wish you all the best with your writing.
