Goblin King torchlight
In honor of this year’s theme “All Hail the Goblin King”, Spocon would like to shine a little light upon local artists and writers who inspire and fascinate. New people will be highlighted regularly, so please return and don’t forget to pre-register for 2019.
After nine years of college and two Master's degrees (English Literature and Theatre) Betsy Mott decided she wanted to be a professional artist.
For over 35 years her media portrait and techno drawings, cosmic & fantasy miniatures have been seen in science fiction art shows all over the country. Her work can be seen on the Landmark , Great Warrior, and Great Space Ships series of published note cards, on CDs, Webzines, books, websites, and in personal collections around the world. She has been featured in a PBS Northwest Profiles segment. She is a fourth generation native of Spokane, a Mensan, and a lifetime member of the Mayflower Society.
As part owner she helps her brother and sister run The Corner Door Fountain and Books in Historic downtown Millwood, WA, where, her fully furnished, if somewhat cluttered, art studio is located. Her hobbies include Role Playing Games, kayaking, researching obscure subjects, and playing trumpet in local pit orchestras and wind ensembles.
has been a writer all her life, but thought of it as just a fun hobby until the late 1990s. Her first sale, a children's poem, was in 2000. Since then she's published 13 books in various formats --- small press, self-published, hard copy and electronic.
Her most recent e-book is an epic fantasy novella, The Tower in the Mist. Her short fiction has appeared in the pages of Andromeda Spaceways and selected anthologies. Meanwhile, her children's poetry and short stories have been published in Boys' Life, Ladybug, Babybug, Cricket, and more. In her free time (ha!) she is Director of Programming for SpoCon Science Fiction.
The Tower in the Mist
Zathi's job is to capture renegade mages, but Keilos isn't like any other mage she's dealt with. Her drive to bring him in only leads them deeper into a cursed forest. Together, warrior and mage will face deadly beasts and grapple with decisions that compromise every principle. Until they stumble upon a place of ancient, forgotten magic. Zathi must choose — allow Keilos to claim it, or kill him once and for all.
