Colleen sponsors Writer’s Weekly Quote. If you don’t participate, you certainly won’t want to miss reading all the great quotes.
I’m a fan of Dean Koontz. When I lived in Huntington Beach, CA I read all the public libraries collection of his books, as well as some I bought for my Kindle app. One of his quotes gives me a clue of his beginnings, and why he came to be an author of suspense thrillers. His proclivity to incorporate of horror, fantasy, science fiction and mystery kept me reading his works.
His quote was true of me and a slew of other children who found escape and travel between the pages of a book.
“Books were this wonderful escape for me because I could open a book and
disappear into it, and that was the only
way out of that house when I was a kid.”
