Even before that I was a devoted reader, but Enid Blyton is the first author that I remember searching for in the local library. From that point on, books became an essential part of life.
I’m sorry to say that I don’t yet have a particular favourite Spanish author, not one that I keep returning to, but I’m sure that day will come soon. I’m still a sucker for a J.K Rowling or Jo Nesbo story (which I have read in Spanish – I know …. shame on me!) I tend to prefer mystery thrillers or fantasy tales, but am open-minded enough to try other genres.
That said, I am more likely to consider the offerings of Indie authors these days too, as these have proven to be a veritable treasure trove in recent years. In 2014 alone, I already have two new favourite authors to follow: Robert Bailey (The Professor) and Gabrielle Arrowsmith (Concealed in the Shadows)
It’s going to be a very good year – positively vintage methinks, and I owe it all to Enid Blyton.
