Writer's Block: Desert island
List three books that have changed your life:

All three from childhood:

The Lorax by Dr Seuss, which I encountered around the age of 6. I've also posted about this in 'Inspirations for my Writing, chapter 2.'

The Forgotten Door by Alexander Key. I probably encountered this one around 7-8 years old. The older I get, and with each time I go back to it, the more I realize what a massive impact it had upon my life, and how much I owe it.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. My mom started reading this to me sometime in 1986, so around my turning 11. When she did so, I felt a deep and unshakable conviction that I had come home at last, and I had found what I was made for. However, figuring out precisely what that conviction meant for my life took me another decade.
