Answer for question 4410.

What were your favorite books growing up? How did those influence your choice of a favorite genre when you got older?
I loved 'The Boxcar Children' by Gertrude Warner, and 'The Secret Garden' by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I wanted to live in that boxcar with them, and I wanted to be in that garden. I love mysteries, and these both kind of are in a sense, so maybe that influenced my choice. I also love gardening, and the ideal of living with nature, so.... I only recently found out that Gertrude Warner wrote a whole series of Boxcar Children books, but I'm happy with the one I read.
