Flashback Fridays 18


Each week this month I will be featuring one of the authors that helped me through my childhood.

Following on from last weeks post Edward Stratemeyer also created the Character of Nancy Drew. Although I didn’t discover this until more recently.  Growing up  I thought it was  Carolyn Keene 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 her character.

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 the way she risked the safety of her life to solve the cases that enthralled me. I read every book the library could get me.  Along with her friends Bess and George and her boyfriend Ned I couldn’t get enough.

Which characters shaped your childhood?
