My Reading and Writing Influences
I was so blessed as a child. My parents had a cosy library, complete with armchairs and an open fire. I spent hours in that room as I was growing up, getting to know a whole bunch of writers and their beloved characters. There was The Secret Garden and Charlotte’s Web and like everyone else, I cried when Charlotte died! As I grew older, I met Zane Grey and all his romantic, frontier-loving cowboys, and a lot of other boys adventure stories like the Tom Swift series. I never once thought that I couldn’t be one of those canyon-climbing, lion-taming boys.
