Wednesday Q & J: March 22, 2023

Q: What books did you like the most as a child?

J:  My two favorites were the stories about King Arthur and the two ALICE IN WONDERLAND. I can still (at the drop of a hat or the drop of a strophe) recite The Jabberwocky poem!

Q: Follow up Question: Didn’t your parents let you read anything you wanted? How did that affect your reading? How did it inform your writing?

J: They let me browse in their books, most of which were well over my understanding, but it showed me early on that books create worlds within worlds, something that has always stuck with me. It also let me know that some things I needed to re-read over and over….or ask questions…if I did not understand.  Something I still do!
