December 2022 Guest


C. David Belt


C. David Belt was born in the wilds of Evanston, WY. As a child, he lived and traveled extensively around the Far East. In Thailand, he once fed so many bananas to a monkey, the poor monkey swore off bananas for life. He served as a Latter-day Saint missionary in South Korea and southern California (Korean-speaking), and yes, he loves kimchi. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Aerospace Studies, but he managed to bypass all English or writing classes. He served as a B-52 pilot in the US Air Force and as an Air Weapons Controller in the Washington Air National Guard and was deployed to locations so secret, his family still does not know where he risked life and limb (other than in an 192' wingspan aircraft flying 200' off the ground in mountainous terrain). He sang as a baritone in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square for fifteen years. When he is not writing, he works as a software engineer and collects and (obsessively) researches swords, spears, and axes (oh, my!), and other medieval weapons and armor. He and his wife have six children and live in Utah.

Karen Smoot
Balloon Artist


Karen Smoot was born and raised in Utah but also spent a year and a half in Southern California where she was able to frequent The Happiest Place on Earth! Parties, events, and excitement have always been a love of hers, so balloon twisting is the perfect hobby. She got her start in balloon twisting when her father-in-law gifted her a starter kit, quite out of the blue, for Christmas one year. He must have known how much she would love it because from that moment on she was hooked! Karen has now been twisting balloons for over 15 years and continues to learn new designs all the time. Her passion stems from seeing the smiles that simple balloons can bring to both children and adults alike! Karen currently lives in Springville, Utah with her husband and four children.
