How Two Readers Became Writers


Most writers are also readers. We are no different – we have always loved books.  Our first library was the book mobile, a truck packed with books that came through our neighborhood once a week.  Our most memorable library growing up in West Virginia was in the basement of the fire station. Our mother, writer and reader that she is, always made a great effort to put books into our hands.
Some of our childhood favorites had a direct impact on us and prepared us to become writers. We are telling about our favorites on Wanda’s blog:

    Nancy Drew was a favourite of mine as well although I read those books when I was a little older. Other childhood favourites were Anne of Green Gables and Little Women.
