I have read alot of books in my lifetime. I used to read all day and night.
As a child I would hide in a darkened room (to be left alone in peace) and read using a torch for hours. I remember reading classics such as The Demon Headmaster moving onto Shaun Hutson and Stephen King as an older teen.
I have read everything from Harry Potter to Sookie Stackhouse Volumes – I just love to read a story.
I always wondered what authors were like and how they thought up their characters.
As a teacher, you meet so many different characters – students, parents and even other teachers. I am sure they could be an inspiration to anybody.
I recently came across The Lucy Bennett Diaries written by a friend of mine, within the first few pages I was smitten.
Lucy’s character comes to life within the diaries – I can imagine her quick wit and see her sat in my classroom.
I can see her expression and hear her distaste for the education system.
I can imagine these diaries of Lucy appearing in full technicolour on our tv very soon.
She is the work of pure genius – and at only 77p per volume – a bargain to boot!
