(We are having a bit of technical difficulty with Chapter 16, so I found this wonderful, inspiring video interview with THE Mr. Ray Bradbury. It is fantastic. Incredibly beautiful. He is a true dreamer. Watch it while you wait for Chapter 16.)
This is a man after my own heart. How he fell in love with books: Comics, Grimms Fairy Tales, Dinosaurs. Three of my favorite things. No wonder he is such an inspiration to me. He decided he could live forever if he became a writer. What a wonderful man.
“The things that you do should be things that you love, and the things that you love should be things that you do.”
He is such an inspiration to readers, authors, agents, editors, publishers, artists, lovers, dreamers.
I highly suggest watching this video.
At 17:30 he begins to talk about The Halloween Tree and his inspiration in writing it.
“You find the author who can lead you through the dark…you go into the library and discover yourself.”
