Today I am introducing you an author I knew, and here is the story between us:
I have stayed in Princeton, New Jersey during 1996-1997, soon after we settled there in Fall, 1996, while my husband was doing research at Institute for Advanced Studies, then, at Einstein Drive, the laundry room, I saw a small paper flyer, which was written by a female, seeking “mother’s help”, I was with my older boy who was three years old then, and he was sent to locale daycare from 9am to 1pm, thus my mornings are empty, I wished to help this mother, so I called her number and she visited me in the evening, (we lived in the same resident area, 5 minutes walk away), well, this is the story, this mother is Megan Turner, she claimed to me that she was a writer for young adults, she needed someone to watch over her infant boy from 10am to 1pm, her older son went to daycare in the area,….
Well, we clicked, I went to her house to babysit her little boy, while she was inside her writing room, I was allowed to speak my native lanugae to her son, and we had lots of fun,
I recall times when her son made loud noises, she would be bothered from her room and took a look at what we do, I usually took her son for a nature walk before he ate his lunch …at around 12:55, we walk together to pick up our boys from daycare, ..
Megan Turner and her husband are loving couple, they paid me tips besides general salary if I had to babysit her son during evenings while they went out for a date as husband and wife…
Here it goes for today: I still remember her fro my corner of mind, decide to check out her books, and to my surprise, I found a few, wow, she has this Big achievement, published several books in recent decades, I feel the urge to share one of her books with you, you may check out her books from public library as well…….
I have no contact with my old friend ever since we left
Princeton, but, I feel thrilled to discover her success and share her talent with you…TODAY!
To Megan Turner: hello, how are you? You write outstanding books, I knew one of your work has won national book award, smiles! ..keep it up. I wish I had spent more time with you, you are such a caring soul, sorry for being unable to go to swimming pool date with you before we departed, I was not a good swimmer and here, I still remember your phone call to me and thanks again for thinking of me…love you, love to see you face from online…. ;) take good care….
Megan Whalen Turner is married to a professor and often relocates when he needs to do research. When they traveled to
Greece one summer, she decided to use its landscape as the background of a book, but didn't write The Thief until she was spending a year in , where the olive trees reminded her of the Greek mainland. California
