Oh my, I have seemed like an open book, haven't I? However, there are pages that I have left out, due to my previous confusion about

interpreting some of the signals. This is a very short story about one of those "pages".

When I was a teen, I had a deep passion for books. Actually, I always have; the tastes have just varied and grown over the years. As a child that was raised in a far too authoritative

home, I found perfect escape in books. Mysteries were a favorite in the tween years. Often, my family found my nose buried in Nancy Drew. My mother would actually get frustrated

because all I wanted to do was be in my room reading! Favorite Nancy Drew mystery: The Hidden Staircase.

As I grew older, my hunger for something more grew. I don't remember exactly how old I was, but my first exposure to him was the novel, It. Though it scared me, I was fascinated

and became a loyal reader. I read a great deal of his work in the years that ensued. Then I went to Dean Koontz and Mary Higgins Clark for awhile. They couldn't compare to his work.

When the womb started growing, I gave up the genre. My imagination had a field day with the things happening in the novels. But I never gave up my awe and wonder of

Mr. Steven King. He's brilliant. He can be very dark. He's extremely talented. Just like you. I would have told you before but I didn't know if you'd be offended. I hope not.:)

You look nothing like him. You are magnitudes more handsome than he. But on the inside, where many do not see, you posess those Kingly qualities that always drew me into his work.

I love you.
