Catherine Smith5 Stars Out Of 5September 17, 2007Catherine SmithRemarkable! It was like a roller coaster ride from cover to cover! Exciting suspense, yet a mind boggling experience that I will not soon forget. A very well written book that will be staying on my "favorites" list!
Jeannette2 Stars Out Of 5October 28, 2004JeannetteAs far as the story goes, it wasn't too bad, but the writing style seemed more for kids. Even though the story is about four teens, I felt like I was reading about 12 year olds and was surprised to find later on that two of them were supposed to be 18. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for something with a little more "meat" to it.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a fourth generation Californian who lived for ten years in the Northwest. Our feet became a little webbed while we were there, and that may be why my story is set in Skinner ("Eugene"), Oregon.
What was your motivation behind this project? I suppose I want to pass on the kind of gift I have received. If a reader were to have the kind of experience with my book that I had with "That Hideous Strength" or "Watership Down," I will feel that I have "paid part of the debt" I owe to the many writers who have enriched my life. Also, the story simply grew in me and needed expression. I often felt like a recipient of grace while I was working.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? So many things! A good read, an entertaining and thought-provoking respite from the woes of everyday life. Also, the interweaving three dimensions in the story speak to a providential Choreographer behind our events. The key characters learn that what appears to them as weakness can actually become their strength.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have been an avid reader of C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, George MacDonald, J.R.R. Tolkein, Charles WIlliams, Dorothy L. Sayers, Walt Wangerin, Annie Dillard, Thomas Merton, Augustine, Pascal, and others.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I'd love to interact with readers who want to know more about background of the book or who have questions about what I am communicating. I can be reached at my website, www.thewelkening.com.
