I have always been a reader first, and nothing tops off my 90s childhood experience more than the Babysitter's Club books by Ann M. Martin and Goosebumps by R.L Stine. I think I loved them because:
they were easy reads
they were simple to understand
there were tons of them
Although when I read these books now and see how cheesy some of them are, I appreciate them for keeping me company during family get-togethers and inspiring me to write my own little stories.
I'm writing this into existence right now, I will have a successful series that keeps people of all ages entertained, inspired, and informed. I guess we can start here.
