About Someone Else Thursday
The first "about someone else" post isn't much of a challenge and isn't a first for my blog, but it's been a long time since I posted anything about her. Her name is Han Suyin and she is the author of my favorite book, The Mountain is Young. My cousin, who incidentally is the person who sent me the article that inspired me to self-publish, recommended this book to me almost two decades ago. I've read it dozens of times and every single time, I love it more. I can only dream that one day I will be able to use words like Han Suyin does as she weaves a tapestry and takes readers away from the world they know into the world of her fictionalized Kathmandu. The main character, Anne Ford, is a favorite of mine, but I also love the entire cast of fallible but fascinating characters. The book is out of print, but available used from Amazon and other online book stores. I highly recommended it, and would love to know who your favorite writer is and why you are moved by their words.
The trailer for my YA debut, The Wild Wood, available June 29, 2012.
