When I was a kid, I loved to tell stories. If I couldn’t find one from real life that was interesting enough to hold someone’s attention, I would just make one up. My parents tended to call these “tall tales.” I didn’t just make up these stories for attention though, I made them up to get away.
I was as fast as any car racing down the street, and could leap over any building in Pullman, WA (which I later realized wasn’t really that impressive). I kept a battle ax under my backpack for any ambush that might find me on the way to school, and sailed with Jason’s Argonauts to find the golden fleece. To put it bluntly, I was a badass.
And that’s what fantasy comes down to – it’s a genre built like an emergency exit at the back of your mind. So you escape for a little bit, close yourself off to the challenges you face, and root for someone else in an entirely different world to overcome their own. We identify with our favorite characters. We draw power from them.
That’s why I write, and why I want to share with you. I do hope to impart some truth or wisdom along the way. My goal is to encourage and inspire as you overcome difficulties with my characters, and I hope the respite it brings contributes in some small way to the overcoming of your own.
