In the midst of my writer's block I began to do something I haven't done for a very long time. I began to read. I've read and read and read and read. It seems I can't read enough. And as I'm reading ideas keep popping into my mind about how I can create children's books from themes I'm reading in my adult thrillers. Lee Childs has become my new favorite author. His books are causing me to lose sleep. I hang onto each and every word while I think about my childhood friends and how we always had a "detective club" going on.
My last name was Jones. My best friend's last name was Taylor. Somehow I think the JoTay Sisters is a series STILL waiting to happen.
And while the series is still churing in my mind I've switched gears a little bit. Right now I'm reading Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. This has really been a good summer for me. What are you reading and what would you suggest?
