Fantasy Friday 1-8-2021

My very first fantasy influence I can remember is Jim Henson. I watched Sesame Street way back in the late 70s and fell in love with Big Bird and Snuffleupagus. I know it’s not strictly fantasy, but this concept of imagination and pretend was a seed planted by Jim Henson which grew and blossomed deep into my childhood, from Fraggle Rock to Labyrinth and Dark Crystal. What’s your first memory of fantasy?

About Missy S

Missy Sheldrake is an epic daydreamer and a muse of positivity who weaves worlds full of character-driven, complex fantasy adventures. In 2014 she dusted off an unfinished Tassy Walden Award-winning manuscript from her college days, started writing her first novel, Call of Kythshire, and never looked back. In four short years, she completed the five-book Keepers of the Wellsprings series, an epic high-fantasy young adult adventure that was awarded the Golden Squirrel Independent Book Award in 2017 for Best Fantasy. When she isn't writing, Missy can be found creating fantastical artworks in paint and clay, wandering hidden forest paths, and concocting plots for imaginary people who are beyond real to her. She loves to hear from her readers, so feel free to drop her a line!

  1. My first fantasy experience that I remember is reading Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears by Verna Aardema, and illustrated by the incredible Diane and Leo Dillon. Mother owl was so sad, so sad, and those illustrations have remained with me forever. I never doubted that animals talk because of this book!
