Marianne Hering was motivated to write the Imagination Station series books because her twin boys craved facts, adventure, and fun in their reading and there weren’t very many Christian books written for early elementary children. As former editor of Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse magazine, she had learned a few things about entertaining children. She has authored or co-authored more than fifty children’s books. She is currently a freelance writer in Colorado Springs, where she babysits two cats, a dog, and tries not to eat too much chocolate. Marianne is joined by a talented team of authors to write the series.
It’s a device which transports the rider into their own imagination in order to experience adventures from history! The Imagination Station is a machine invented by John Avery Whittaker, the main character of the Adventures in Odyssey series.
Adventures in Odyssey is an award-winning audio drama series created for ages 8-12 and enjoyed by the whole family. Episodes often start with the grandfatherly Mr. Whittaker (“Whit”), who runs an ice cream shop called Whit’s End. They last an average of twenty-five minutes and bring biblical principles to life, through a balance of fun, faith and imagination.
Of all the things John Avery Whittaker has thought up to teach and entertain the kids of Odyssey, none compare to the Imagination Station! Whit’s original idea was to create an experience that would somehow “transport” the user into the material they were learning about, especially stories and lessons from the Bible. After several pre-cursor inventions tinkering with the same concept, the Imagination Station was finally born.
The very first outing in the Imagination Station was by Digger Digwillow, who traveled back in time to experience the last week of Jesus’ life. Bringing the truth of the Bible alive for him and serving as a catalyst for real faith in Christ.
The Imagination Station uses proprietary secret technology developed by Whit himself. As a former project lead on several powerful computer programs for the US government, working on the bleeding edge of what technology is capable of, very few people on the planet rival Whit’s technical know-how. As amazing and beneficial as the Imagination Station technology is, it’s also incredibly powerful, and used in the wrong way can have disastrous consequences.
