I grew up with stories and these stories shaped my life - the ones I read and the ones I wrote. Stories still continue to inspire my life. Here are my thoughts on reading, writing, and life.

Next on the Bookshelf
I took a trip to the bookstore yesterday and walked out with two books, one for my son and one for me. If I had carte blanche I would have walked out with an armload of books, because as I perused the shelves I saw so many titles that are on my "to read" list!
What am I reading now? I'm finishing up an ARC copy that I never got around to reading when I got it last September called, "The Midnight Charter" by David Whitley. Very interesting read, check out the editorial reviews on Amazon.
Next on my reading list will be one of the two books I picked up yesterday, "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld. I've heard lot's of talk about this series, but I'll be honest I never felt inclined to buy it because the title turned me off. But...my brother and sister-in-law and their daughter have all read it and raved about it, so I bought a copy yesterday. It's next on the list!
And I just had to get another Goosebumps book (by R.L. Stine)for my son. He's hooked on the series. This time I got him "The Beast From The East". And we've already started reading it as a bedtime story.
