My favorite books are the ones that make me smile for hours after reading them. I want that for my readers, for the sweetness to linger. Sort of like chocolate, but without the calories.
Sarah Addison Allen
I write for the same reason I eat chocolate - because it is, undeniably a compulsion.
When I say to a parent, "read to a child", I don't want it to sound like medicine. I want it to sound like chocolate.
Blustery cold days should be spend propped up in bed with a mug of hot chocolate and a pile of comic books.
Reading is a staple of life, like bread or water. Or chocolate.
