Welcome to Tea with Tumnus! Grab a cup of tea and take an armchair.
I’m S. M. Metzler. I’m a writer of YA speculative fiction who believes in the magic of storytelling and the power of words. In fact, that’s why I started this blog. Here I share anything about stories–not just stories found in books, but stories in music and movies as well. Stories are found in any medium of art and can be made from words or notes or canvas or a camera. Here on the blog I give some tips and inspiration for writers and I also write up reviews on books and movies as well as the power of story in music and film scores and how they help you write. I also believe that stories should be written to not only bring hope and encouragement, but to inspire people to dream, to create, to discover the unknown in the depths of the human soul and in the far reaches of the universe. There’s a reason why stories have stuck with mankind ever since mankind has existed; there’s a secret power that lies within stories, and I believe, within the wise weaving of words, that stories can have a secret power that can change the world.
Here’s a little bit about me: I’m a
- Tea drinker
- Human with agoraphobia, cymophobia and emetophobia. I also don’t like needles.
- Passionate sci-fi and fantasy lover.
- Writer. My current WIP is Fiction’s Lie. It’s a precious child that is giving me lots of problems.
- Christian. I believe in the grace and redemption that Jesus has given me.
- Overall generally confused human.
I also post once a month over on Constant Collectible, the ultimate geek site, where I contribute with some book and comic reviews as well as film score news. Head on over there and check it out! On Tea with Tumnus, you will also find some posts called Michael’s Movie Mentions. Michael Jr., my brother, is a filmmaking nerd and his goal is to become a film director. He’s contributed several times on film scores, the director’s job, etc.
