Donna Gartshore guest post

a few of my favourite books

by Donna Gartshore, author of A Secret Between Them

Thank you for inviting me to guest post on your blog. It’s my pleasure to be here.

Today I want to talk about a few of my favourite reads. Like most writers, books and reading are a very important part of my life. If you could visit my home and see that I currently have more books than space for them, you would realize how true this is.

I have strong memories of my dad reading to me when I was a child. It was such a comforting ritual and an important part of growing up. He was also one of the first people to encourage my interest in writing.

I remember him reading the Curious George books and Babar the Elephant to me when I was very young. As I got a bit older, we shared many laughs over the antics of Pippi Longstocking, walked an emotional journey with Black Beauty and, even as was able to read myself, he continued to share his love of books with me.

Saturdays were often used for trips to the library and second-hand bookstores. I will always cherish the time my dad spent being willing to cultivate and share in my adoration of books.

At school, teachers would spend time each day reading aloud to the class. I fell in love with The Secret Garden and Anne of Green Gables at these times. Perhaps lesser known, but one of my most memorable reading experiences, is the Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken.

Something I always do, as a quiet tribute to the classics that I love, is try to weave in mention of a classic book in the romances I write for Love Inspired.

The list of impactful books can go on and on: The Little House on the Prairie books, collections of short stories by Alice Munro, Mavis Gallant and Raymond Carver, the incomparable mysteries of Agatha Christie and the romances of Jane Austen.

It goes without saying that I feel so blessed to be part of the romance writing and reading community. What a pleasure and privilege it is to try to create stories that bring some light and hope into life because we all know that life can be a struggle.

Reading brings escape from these struggles and fellow readers make some of the best friends a person can have.

I appreciate all in the reading and writing community and I am grateful for this journey!
