Realm Makers Wrap Up

I came home from Realm Makers and headed straight to GenCon, so I haven’t had time to write my own RM roundup post yet.
While you’re waiting for that, I thought you might like to check out other attendees’ thoughts on the subject.

2016-07-29_09.19.24Well, ladies, gents, and hobbits, we’re wrapping up another successful Realm Makers conference. Each year, I see the conference getting better and better: great workshops, deeper discussions, more networking . . . just bigger, better, and more. God is doing amazing things with our little niche in the world. (Which, by the way, is not as small as some may think!)

Becky Minor, Realm Makers Director and Advisory Board

By Amy Brock McNew

Author. Blogger. Fighter.

Former nurse and martial artist.

Amy doesn’t just write speculative fiction, she lives and breathes it. She enthusiastically explores the strange, the supernatural, and the wonderfully weird. She pours her guts onto the pages she writes, honestly and brutally revealing herself in the process. Nothing is off limits. Her favorite question is “what if?” and she believes fiction can be truer than our sheltered and controlled realities.

This wife and mom is a lover of music, chocolate, the beach, and cherry vanilla Coke. Her home is a zoo, filled with teenagers–both hers and those she seems to collect–two dogs, a cat, and various fish and amphibians. Strangely enough, her kids are the ones who have to tell her to turn the music down.

It is her firm belief that everyone should have a theme song.

Originally from Arkansas, Amy currently resides in Indiana. She and her Taekwondo-instructor husband are constantly acting like overgrown kids–and loving every minute of it. She longs for the day when her husband retires, so she can write her adventures of love and war on a back porch overlooking the ocean.

In flip flops.
