Where can I learn more about this author and their books?

I believe it was Mark Twain who said “There is no such thing as a new idea.  It is impossible.  We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope.  We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations.  We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”

Do you believe that?  There are times when I really think that something is an original idea, but perhaps it is just a combination that I don’t recognize or I just haven’t heard of the idea that has been around awhile.  If it is true, perhaps that is what draws us to certain stories.  Who hasn’t seen different versions of Romeo and Juliet (fated romance) or A Christmas Carol (redemption)?

Whether or not it is true, there is something to be said about a retelling of the stories that God felt were important enough to be in the Bible.  I’m glad God is a storyteller, aren’t you?

  2. For historical stories I like them to be close to the facts. I enjoy modern version of fairy tales. It’s fun to read a “new” perspective. 🙂

  3. It truly depends on the author! Some authors are brilliant at this and others make me wish that the original story hadn’t been tainted in my mind. Always willing to give it a try though.
