Thankful (BBT)

btt button

It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. of A. so … What authors and books are you most thankful for?

Mildred A. Wirt-Benson, the author of the first 25-original Nancy Drew Yellowbacks, the very first mystery books I ever read. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle--for being a writer and not a doctor and giving the world Sherlock Holmes. Dee Henderson for creating an amazing world of action, mystery and truth in her O'Malley series--she proved that having multiple characters from the same family worked out just fine. Nancy Rue--for writing amazing books for young women without writing down or at them. Frances Hodgeson Burnett--for writing my top three favorite books of all time, A Lady of Quality, The Secret Garden and The Little Princess. Amazing writers and amazing books, I am thankful they shared their talents and hearts with us through the words they wrote. Happy Thanksgiving!

p.s. Yes, this post is late...but I'm still thankful!
