Although I belong to a family of 9, that's including my parents, my grandma, and the maid, I was most often alone. At a very young age, I live in my own 'world' with my fairy tale books. Then, I discovered the "Bobsy Twins" series, the "Nancy Drew" series, Perry Mason, Agatha Christie, the romantic novels, and ... the novels by Taylor Caldwell. Stories by Caldwell are pure emotions... "There was a Time" was her first book I read, I cried from chapter 1 up to the end. All books, be it a children's book, an adult book, inspiration novel,... they all inspire me.
