shutterstock_103611593When I was younger, I LOVED to read. Reading to me was like escaping to a make-believe world, every time I opened the book. I really loved to write too, and I made up stories all the time. I was kind of a dramatic kid, so I would write little plays and act them out with my friends. I think reading great books by awesome authors inspired me to write. I'm really grateful to all my favorite authors and thank them for the make-believe worlds they created for me! I still read a lot. My favorite are audio books. I like to read them in my car and at night to help me fall asleep. Here are my favorite authors...
