I realize now that most were versions for children until I got older. I used my allowance to buy the Companion Library or Illustrated Classic versions at Kmart. One of my favorites was Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates . I had a crush on Hans. I also enjoyed Heidi. I was born in Germany, so I imagined myself being her. Those books became a part of my classroom library when I began teaching sixth grade. I read to my students and found new favorites such as Across Five Aprils, A Wrinkle in Time, Old Yeller, and more. When I moved to teaching high school literature, I returned to the classics.  Why do you wr

Thank you, Gail, for inviting me to be part of your blog family.  It’s my pleasure to have you. First, tell us a little about yourself.  I’m a fairly new widow and getting used to the idea. The Lord has been so there for me through the last year and a half. I live near Orlando and nearer still to Disney. I go to its parks to walk a couple times a week. I write mainly in the historical romance and romantic suspense genres. My favorite part of writing is the research—I love travel and visiting the places in my books to make sure my facts are authentic. However, I had to cancel the trip to LA to research A Friend in High Places. Stupid Covid. I live with my  son and dog, Lily, who is the best sleeper in the world. She’s got it down to a science.  So sorry for your loss and the covid. Lots of writers were avid readers as children. How about you?
