The People of Mount Hermon

I promised more about Mount Hermon, and this seems like a good time to squeeze in a little more about the writer’s conference. However, if you want lots more, including some interesting pre-conference info, I suggest you click on over to the Mount Hermon blog.

Where to start?

Regulars here at A Christian Worldview of Fiction might like to put a face with the name of one of our frequent commenters—speculative fiction writer Morgan (she’ll have her own Web site soon) Busse. I was tempted to give her a hard time about not having her own blog until I learned what a busy woman she is and how disciplined she has to be just to eke out an hour a day for writing. Now I feel privileged that she takes the time to stop by ACWoF from time to time!

I don’t think Mount Hermon would feel like Mount Hermon if I didn’t see Becca Johnson and her mom Susan. I first met Becca in 2005, I think, when she was fifteen and part of the teen track. I was excited to meet another fantasy writer and we hit it off right away. Becca joined the CSFF Blog Tour and was quite active until college intervened. Now writing takes up her “free” time.

Some other regulars who make the conference feel like a reunion of sorts are people like now faculty member and former co-mentoring clinic attendee of a Randy Ingermanson group—Jeannette Hanscome, pictured with writer and one time keynote speaker Kay Marshall Strom; Harvest House editor Nick Harrison just before one evening general session standing beside novelist, biographer, poet, and seminar instructor Ethel Herr; strap-yourself-into-your-seat suspense writer Brandilyn Collins; fellow SoCal’ers, novelist Julie Carobini and mentoring group/transportation buddy Rich Bullock; lots others, but I see I’m not going to be able to load all these pictures in this post, so I’ll do a Part 2 another day. For now you’ll have to trust me. Those people really were there!

  1. Yes, I’m still working on that website 🙂 Luckily I have a tech savvy husband who will be helping me with that endeavor. Mt Hermon is a great place to meet some amazing people (that alone is worth the admission price lol).


  2. I was so happy that we got to come again and that you were there too. 😀 I really do need to get back to doing the blog tour… I’ve actually been thinking about my blog for the past few days and have been considering putting up some reviews of books I recently read. We’ll see. 🙂


  3. Morgan, I agree that MH is a great place to meet people. I’ve made some wonderful friends there.

    Keep me posted about your Web site progress. I’ll want to add you to the blog roll.

    Becca, it was great that we both missed the same year and came back to MH the same year! I’d love to have you back on the tour, but I know how college is! Add to that your work on your novel, and I know your time is limited. I subbed your blog on bloglines, so if you do post any reviews, I’m there.
