Each week this month I will be featuring one of the authors that helped me through my childhood.
The first author that consumed a lot of hours of my school years was Edward Stratemeyer although I didn’t discover this until more recently. Growing up I thought it was Franklin W. Dixon until I found out that was a ghost name and there was actually many authors writing behind that one collective pseudonym.
Edward Stratemeyer was the original creator of the characters.
As soon as I finished reading one book I remember opening the cover of the next book. Sometimes reading a book a night fighting off sleep until I’d finished. There was something about Frank and Joe working together pooling their strengths to solve the cases that really appealed to me. I read every book the library could get me.
