Author/Artist Review

Author: Robert Treskillard

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a native Minnesotan transplanted to St. Louis, MO ... and I don't miss the snow-shoveling or mosquitoes! I've been crafting stories from my early youth, but didn't start writing a novel until I was almost 40. I'm a software developer, graphic designer, celtic enthusiast, and have a B.A. in Biblical & Theological Studies from Bethel University, MN.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  When my son was young, he wanted to learn blacksmithing and bladesmithing, so we set out to learn the crafts. In the process, my sister informed me that we were descended from a blacksmith who lived in Cornwall, England. This lit a fire in my imagination that welded together my Celtic research and my love for the legends of King Arthur, and a book was forged—Merlin's Blade, book one of The Merlin Spiral, coming April 2013 from Zondervan.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  There are many themes in Merlin's Blade, and in the entire trilogy, but one thing I want the reader to walk away with is a boldness to deal with the problems that they confront—even in the midst of weakness—in the same that Merlin must despite his near-blindness.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  To write a novel like Merlin's Blade, with such tragedy and triumph, I found myself walking alongside the characters in a way that I didn't expect, pouring my soul into them. I rejoiced with their victories, and wept with their sorrows, and I was a different person for having written it.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Frank Peretti's thrilling novels were my first inspiration to write, and then Stephen Lawhead's historical fantasies opened my eyes to what can be done in that genre. If reader's find that my novels contain even a hint of the craft and mastery that those authors have, I'll be more than satisfied.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My website for the novels will have a contest were you can win your own Excalibur made by the author!
