Old Friends are Like Good Books!

A Clue for Adrianna  by Charlotte Kent (pseudonym used by Annie Acorn and Juliette Hill for their Captain’s Point Story series)  Coming Soon!

Recently, I have reconnected with one of my oldest and dearest friends that I grew up with, went all through school with (elementary through high school), and even kept in touch for years after that.  Inevitably life happens and we haven’t seen each other for at least twenty years.  But now, thanks to our wonderful high school class president and a dynamite class website, we have connected once again!  In a couple of weeks, she and I, along with a few other classmates and friends are planning a get-together to renew our friendships.

For me, old friends or friendships are like reader’s relationships with good books!   They are cherished when new, preserved through the years, and even when resting on a treasured book shelf for a time, one can years later select a favorite work from its designated spot and once again relish the story inside and the special bonds created by the author’s carefully chosen words.

The books of my youth still hold a special place in my heart!   Treasured classics like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby are just a few that come to mind.  I can read and re-read these works over and over again, even years apart, and still feel the comfort and joy of an old friend.  No matter how old I get, I will always cherish Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie which was one of the first books of my own that I received as a gift from my parents.

As a writer and newly published author, I hope that my short stories, novellas and novels will be enjoyed and treasured much like wonderful friendships which stand the test of time.  My hope is that each year that passes will only strengthen the bonds that I’m forging with my readers and that like old friendships, my works might someday be out of sight, but never out of mind.

Happy Reading!
