Word for 11/14 – Author

I read a ton during my elementary school years.  Louisa May Alcott was an author who I enjoyed in my preteen years.  In part it was because of her stories but I know it was also influenced by the fact I had selected a doll modeled after her character ‘Jo’ as a five-year old.   Sometime in junior high I discovered T. H. White’s The Once and Future King.  It remained my favorite books for many years.  Then in my mid twenties I discovered Edith Wharton.  I  have a few of her short stories & novellas still to read but I am in no rush to say I have read all of her works.  With a non-living author once you have read all their work the thrill of reading one of their creations for the 1st time can not be recaptured.
