What book or author are you most thankful to have discovered?
Have you read everything they’ve written? Reread them?
Why do you appreciate them so much?
I know for a Paranormal Romance author my answer will seem a bit odd but hey… odd I am. The author that I am most thankful for is Dr. Seuss. Not only because his books were a wonder to me as a child but his story, his dedication and determination, and his personal convictions were and are an inspiration to me. He laboured for years before he ever managed to succeed as an author. Sure he had a lot of advertising success and such but as an author… it took an extreme amount of patience and perseverance to obtain his success. While I have not read every one of Suess’s books, he made reading fun and learning easy. He taught that people are people, no matter how different. And, he taught that the world and what lives on Her is important, not just to use but to protect.
Dr. Seuss is my inspiration and my hero!
