I never got into The Old Man and the Sea. That one made me crazy. I liked Johnny Tremain, though. But the one that stuck with me the most, the one I've read and re-read at least twenty times over the years, is Silas Marner.
Do any of you remember reading about poor old Silas and his hoarded money and sweet adopted daughter, Eppie? I don't know if that story has ever left me. And frankly, as a foster/adoptive mother, I wonder sometimes if it had to do with my choice to care for children that aren't biologically mine.
|This is what writer's block feels like.|
I'm excited to share my latest story with you all. It, too, is inspired by Silas Marner and George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans) and I really hope all of my awesome readers enjoy it. After fifteen months of writer's block, I hope my latest characters touch their hearts as much as they touch mine.
