    Because he is so well known, I didn't include C.S. Lewis.

    Surrounded by bats and owls... really!
    Bill Hand, The Oneprince. It had a tumultous development and I suspect that's why it's not as well-known as some other books, but I tripped over the first half in the school library and read it about a million times.

    Tolkien, C.S Lewis, George MacDonald. I'm also taking a shine to Brandon Sanderson.

    I'm pretty sure Brandon Sanderson is a Mormon.
    What separates the writers from the wannabes is that the writers write.

    I think he might be of a Mormon sect which identifies more strongly with other Christians. Either way, I find it hard to not like a guy who watches Veggie Tales.

    Madeleine L'Engle, Michelle Griep if you like C-fic time-travel stories. Most folks feel t.t. stories are spec-fic. It's not easy to tell a story like this from a Christian worldview, but it's doable...I managed one and am working on two sequels once I take the first one indie.
    WIP: "Seasons of Reckoning", 1356, Cornwall

    Three-part time travel romance coming soon from Desert Breeze; volume 1 SEASONS IN THE MIST (reissue)

    An inspiration... ...I have a serious case of Grobanosis

    C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, obviously. Others include Wayne Thomas Batson and Donita K. Paul, whose book series' I much enjoyed. They're YA and middlegrade, but still really good and their world building is incredibly deep (especially in Donita K. Paul's DragonKeeper Chronicles). Definitely something to learn from.

    I'll come back if I think of any others.
