Welcome

I'm so pleased that your journeys have led you here, and I hope that you will hang up your coat, take off your shoes, and join me for a while at the fireside. In this place, I hope to engage friends, both old and new, in the rapt discussion of what makes fantasy so appealing. Better yet, I pray we will explore together how fantasy fiction can bring glory to the one who created imagination when he breathed his image into man.

Who am I, and why do I spend the time thinking about these things? My name is Becky Minor, and I am the aspiring author of a Christian Fantasy Series called The Call of the Creator. Book One: The Sword of the Patron nears its great and fearsome entrance into the quest for a publisher (more on that at the end of the summer), Book Two: The Voice Within, which concludes the adventures of Book One, has an appointment with deep scrutiny, editing and expansion, and Book Three (as yet untitled) has begun to rattle around in my head, dropping bits and pieces of its plot into my path when it deems convenient. (Which is usually when I am far from a computer to pitter pat it down!)

Besides writing, I am the wife to the man the Lord destined for me; I am the mother of three boys who have not yet gotten old enough to have more than a single digit in their ages. I am a homeschooler. (Quite possibly the most distracted homeschooler on the planet, may my children forgive me.) I am an illustrator, was once an animator of the old pencil-and-paper variety, a singer by association. Did I miss anything? Probably. I am an endless dabbler, for certain. If any of this sounds interesting enough to read about at your leisure, I invite you to follow along my artistic adventures.

So please, stop back for a visit when you're in the neighborhood, or follow along how you see fit. Every journey is better with comrades.

Blessings
