According to her mother, Elysia is already a huge fan of mine. She has always wanted to be a librarian, but wants to write also. When she learned I’ve done both, her mother said I’ve been Elysia’s hero ever since.
Isn’t that the greatest thing ever? To not be able to leap buildings with a single bound, or stop a ship from plowing into a port city single-handed, but to be able to share stories with girls and boys who someday could very well be sharing their own stories and “moving” readers with their adventurous tales for younger generations to read–to me that is the most wondrous thing of all.
A quote from her mom and Elysia: “She is halfway through [The Dark Fae] and said, “OMG Mom this is getting really good!! I can’t put it down!”
And that is the best compliment an author can ever receive.
What could be better than reading The Dark Fae, drinking hot chocolate at Groundhouse Coffee on a lazy summer Sunday afternoon, while mom’s reading a much different book and drinking coffee?
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, Elysia, for loving my stories. And to her mom, who loves my adult stories, too!!! 🙂
One of my favorite YA authors is Amelia Atwater Rhodes. She wrote as a young girl and how I wished when I was penning stories at her age, I had been published, too. That’s what I love about creating stories. We can do it at any age, and share them with our friends and family and someday even the world.
What was the first book you read that you couldn’t get enough of? And had to read more of what the author wrote?
Thanks for dropping by and sharing your comments with me.
One lucky winner will receive an ebook copy of The Dark Fae, international giveaway.
Thanks again to Elysia and her mom who shared this with me. And good luck, Elysia! All your dreams will come true with perseverance and determination!
Have a super great Monday! And if you have a moment, pass along your joy of reading to others!
