There are times in your childhood that are connected to books. Those moments with books are unforgetable. Being alone and safe in a good book is what I think are the best memories of my early teen life. I mark the passage with certain titles I would like to share with you now. Maybe we have them in...

View of Paris from the Eiffel Tower
It started with a dream. I had taken French all through High School. I’d been a member of the French Club, and taken tests on the parts of Paris. I knew how the Arc De Triomphe was at the end of the Champs-Elysees ending with Place de la Concorde. Le Louvre was a destination along with Pere-...

This is the time of year I love to read " 'Twas The Night Before Christmas". It is the first appearance in literature of the famous Santa Claus. Up to this point, he was mostly legend and fantasy heresay. But this poem really put him on the map. That is why it's the best Santa Claus story of all...

There is adventure in exploring an area and using the description as some setting in your book. This is the joy...

There is a dropper coming at me. I fight it off with my small hands. I hate the taste. I don't know why it's being shoved into my mouth, but it keeps coming. Pink powdery ooze goes down my throat. I'd lost. I'd been dosed and started to cry. My arms flail in the effect to protest my reaction to the...
