 My Book Story: The Nancy Drew Files by Carolyn Keene

Angela Campbell

 

First of all, thank you for allowing me to share my book story with The Modest Verge and its readers. As anyone who loves to read knows, asking a book lover to select a favorite book is similar to asking a parent who her favorite child is. It’s next to impossible for me to select only one favorite book! Do I go back to my young adulthood, when my love of books truly developed, and choose “Are you there God? It’s Me, Margaret” by Judy Bloom, “The Chocolate War” by Robert Cormier or “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton — the three books I re-read dozens of times? Actually, I think I’ll go back a little further to the series of books that really jump-started my love of reading: “The Nancy Drew Files” by Carolyn Keene.
Nancy Drew
Growing up, I had three brothers, no sisters, and was the daughter of a cop, so the idea of a strong and smart girl detective really appealed to me. I devoured all of the Nancy Drew books I could get my hands on at the library or bookstore. Back in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Nancy Drew had romantic plots as well as stories that sometimes found her investigating hauntings and monster sightings. It’s no wonder I grew up to write romantic suspense that veers into paranormal more often than not. So, here’s to Nancy Drew, girl detective — my favorite book heroine of all time.
I really appreciate The Modest Verge’s support of my books. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of this.

  1. Ah, Nancy Drew. I think my love for cliffhanger chapter endings comes from those books. For some reason I skipped straight over the Bobbsey Twins and started straight with Nancy Drew in about grade 3 or 4. Then the Hardy Boys and Trixie Belden. Anyone else read Trixie Belden?
