Thursday . . . Tell a Story

When I was young my brother Todd was the best storyteller evah...

He didn't even have to try. Words flowed out of his mouth like water over a fall. And he drew you in...to listen and hear how the adventure was going to end.

Some people said he was a liar...but I know the truth. They were just jealous. Todd was the Best Storyteller in the World.

From aliens to werewolves to zombies and vampires...that was just the beginning.

He had me believing it was all possible. Sadly, Todd didn't live long. He died...I know...it's like his last little joke on Earth, on April Fool's Day.

So who is it in your life that inspired you to become a writer...? With me it must have been my brother...Todd

I'm sorry for your loss, Kim. Todd sounded like a great guy. For me, I was inspired by a little mountain goat to start writing, but my kids definitely played a part, too.

Intersting though. I don't think there was a particular person but maybe the books that I read? Like Little Woman and Anne of Green Gables.
