I write in multiple genres. This is not remarkable, numerous authors do the same thing. What is different about my writing is that one of my genres is Christian fiction. Those who write Christian books usually don’t venture very far into other genres. At least not as far as science fiction and fantasy. But there are exceptions.
C.S. Lewis is best known for his Christian writings and his classic series “The Chronicles of Narnia”. What is not well known is that he gained great acclaim as a science fiction writer for his “Ransom” trilogy.
In the 1920s Lewis became friends with J.R. Tolkien. Tolkien was known to have bouts of writer’s block that sometimes lasted for great lengths of time. Lewis encouraged and prodded him to get through these times.
It has been suggested that I write only Christian stories as if there is something wrong with writing in other genres. Many times, these same people are the ones who watch zombie movies and whatever Stephen King puts out. This is fine with me, but it makes them look a little two-faced.
There are a lot of science fiction, fantasy, and horror authors out there who are atheists, and it shows in their stories. But my stories are not like that. Though I do not always mention God in my stories I also do not use God’s name in vain either.
The world is not black and white. There are nuances of color everywhere. Though many people think that the Bible explains everything It doesn’t. The universe is vast. There is so much that man has just begun to understand. Things that I might imagine in my science fiction books are nothing compared to what God has created. I think that people as a whole make God to be small. God is bigger than we can imagine. There are billions and billions of stars and planets out there. Who knows what else God has created?
I'm open to comments, good or bad.
When I write a blog, I try to keep it relevant. Often it will be about writing and books. I also review books that I read.
