– Do You Ever Outgrow Your Love For Picture Books? –
At a very early age, my parents would read to me at bedtime. Then in elementary school, I tagged along with my dad every time he went to the library. Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and a few picture books usually found their way into my checkout bag.
Not too much has changed over the years. I still love mysteries and picture books but I don’t tag along with my dad anymore. We do, however, share discussions about ebooks that we are currently reading.
When my children were young, I made my way to the library for a different type of book. I needed information about sending stories to magazines since I discovered a new love: writing. I eventually had several stories and articles published in magazines such as Wee Wisdom and Jack and Jill.
Over the years I’ve had several books published, but in time all of my publishers closed. And I’m sticking with the story that the closings had nothing to do with the authors they chose to publish, but more to do with the economy.
Because my married name is so common, I have always included my maiden name: Shakespeare. And, yes, my ancestors came from England, a place I would love to visit someday.
I have created two other sites in hopes of encouraging both reading and writing.
Hopefully, these blogs will add to your interest in books.
