Wise words from first-time author Cheryl Alleway, a Canadian writer who says reading a disparate group of writers ranging from J.R.R. Tolkien to Louis L’Amour to Margaret Atwood influenced both her writing style -- she wrote the 2013 historical fiction book Of Blade and Valor -- and the way she shaped her life.
“Reading and writing are fundemental to this day no matter how technology grows. The ability to communicate a story that stirs emotions within others is a gift to both the writer and the reader. We need story-tellers in the world. It allows us to discover, learn, feel and find our sense of adventure."
