Books opening doors

A book that opened a door for me when I was about ten, was Weaver of Dreams by Elfredo Dupont. It wasn’t fiction, but seemed like fiction, telling the story of the young Brontes, how they played together, went to a harsh boarding school, where the two eldest caught TB and died, and how this affected Charlotte to write Jane Eyre. A friend of mine and I copied their writing of tiny books and wrote our own series, 100 little books….we never completed the series, but we had a lot of fun writing and designing the covers. I’ve still got them, ‘The Adventures of Ruth and Clara.’

Many, many books have opened doors for me. That’s what great books do. DSC02531
