There’s no difficulty filling the days–besides the whole “working full time to pay the bills” thing, we both love to craft (though our crafts look very different). Plus, we like our friends and family a lot. And food. Food is important.
Ever since I was a kid I’ve written stories. My first scribbles were horse stories inspired by the Walter Farley’s timeless Black Stallion and anything by Marguerite Henry–as well as more teenage horse books like the Golden Filly series or High Hurdles. Most of my teenage creations are…well…a fascinating peek into the mind of a 13 year old who longed for a barn full of Beautiful Talented Horses and a lot of adventures. I spent an inordinate amount of time naming the horses and developing their careers and profiles and lineages. My horse stories are unfinished. Every last one of them.
When I got older (just a little older) and discovered a deep and abiding love for history and fantasy, I started writing more seriously. George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkien, Bodie and Brock Theone, and many others inspired me write other stories. I finished my first novel in college.
If you’re in the mood for a story right now, Dandelions is a charming tale about how one knight defeated an army with a humble dandelion. Or perhaps if you’re more intrigued by a mysterious mercenary with a quick wit, Zare Caspian’s adventures are for you.
