Let’s Talk with Maggie Toussaint

Summertime and the Reading Is Easy
by Maggie Toussaint

When I was growing up, my favorite place to read was in the hammock on the porch. I loved the way the hammock wrapped around me, cocooning me into the story world.

I explored so many wonderful authors and learned the virtue of being an armchair traveler. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever growing up to live far from home or being so busy with marriage, children, and career that there was no time to read. (Luckily, most of that time pressure has abated so that I am once again enjoying reading books.)

Early on, I had a strong preference for fiction books, and I really enjoyed the stories about kids/teens/young adults having an adventure and they had to solve the story puzzle. In those wonderful summers, I never met a book I didn’t like. Even better, those blessed hours on the porch shaped me into a reader who still enjoys those kinds of reads, and I even write books that fit this description.
