When J.R. Fehr popped out of the womb, he knew there was more to the world than the four boring hospital walls that he was seeing. “Zango!” his newborn mind exclaimed as he saw people appear and disappear through a mysterious portal in the wall. As a child he found life wowtazzling, but as he grew older the cold water of reality hit him, and the magic he once knew vanished. After spending some wet and shivering years lost in a joyless wasteland, he once again began to see magic in the world. He writes because the Wonder of true life is far grander than anything he ever thought possible.

The Story Behind “Castaway, Castaway!”


In 2015, I wrote and directed a short film called “Castaway, Castaway!” This was very much a passion project. I spent a lot of time wrestling with the script before getting together with some friends and shooting it on a low budget. But what happened during the process of writing and filming it ended up having a profound effect on my life.

I loved everything about this book UNTIL the end. There is absolutely no climax. I was waiting for it but we don't get there at all and that was entirely frustrating. It began with structural issues and ended with a major one. That said, I loved the " Read more of this review »

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”

“One of the things I love most about Fantasy is the way it allows us to utilize our imagination and enter other worlds. Some lessons are best learned by reading stories and seeing through another's eyes.”
J.R. Fehr

“And so must learn to love with our mouths and voices, as well as with our eyes, flesh, heart, brains, and with everything we have, right down to our toenails. There is not anything about us that cannot love, and that is not called to love, and that is not destined to be turned, conformed, and reduced to pure love. It ...is the priceless deposit left by the burning away of selfishness.”
Mike Mason

“If people do not believe in permanent marriage, it is perhaps better that they should live together unmarried than that they should make vows they do not mean to keep. It is true that by living together without marriage they will be guilty (in Christian eyes) of fornication. But one fault is not mended by adding another; unchastity is not improved by adding perjury. The idea that 'being in love' is the only reason for remaining married really leaves no room for marriage as a contract or promise at all. If love is the whole thing, then the promise can add nothing; and if it adds nothing, then it should not be made.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

“One of the marks of a certain type of bad man is that he cannot give up a thing himself without wanting every one else to give it up. That is not the Christian way. An individual Christian may see fit to give up all sorts of things for special reasons--marriage, or meat, or beer, or the cinema; but the moment he starts saying the things are bad in themselves, or looking down his nose at other people who do use them, he has taken the wrong turning.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
