Hello! This is the beginning of my blog about Betrovia. A few people have asked how I got the idea for the book. The answer? It was December 2004 and I was in Sunday School. Instead of sitting in the usual place, on one of the folding chairs, I was sitting at one of the tables. And I was doodling. And sipping coffee. Then, in the middle of an inconsequential abstract doodle, it hit me. I started scribbling plot, character, conflict and setting details. I was engrossed. I was so engrossed that I didn't notice that class had ended! But before I got up from the table, I folded up that piece of paper and determined to transform it into sentences, paragraphs and even chapters.
