SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAWhen my elementary school teacher in a small town in Georgia began reading our class Great Expectations, I had no idea it was the beginning of a long, lovely relationship with words. I’ve since exchanged warm summers and hospitality for frozen winters and a polished professionalism in Sweden, but I’ve taken my love for writing with me. The days of thirty children huddled together, sometimes holding hands, wondering what would happen to Pip are over — my love affair with books isn’t. I’ve written, and published, poetry, short stories, personal essays, and a novel.

I have no plans to stop anytime soon.

  1. Hi! Great Expectations opened a new world for me as well although it was at a slightly older age. It was my first year in Jr. High school and my first Creative Writing class. We actually had groups which were formed to express the mood of the story in different ways. Our groupd did a mock up of Ms. Haversham’s table, complete with web covered cake and decorations. That tale remains in my soul as does the spirit of Dickens and his expression of the plight of the common man, woman and child.

  2. Sadly, no. Im afraid no cell phones existed in 1973; and although I do recall the English teacher taking photos, we never saw them. Yes, it was fun. We had a small class that year. Dickens characters depict true human nature and experience, a timeless message. I love how he, like Dostoyvsky, can inspire understanding for all of the characters.
