Literary Birthday - 11 October - Richard Paul Evans

Happy Birthday, Richard Paul Evans, born 11 October 1962

Five Quotes

  1. Books are the most tolerant of friends.
  2. Don’t try to write what other people are writing - write what is true to you.
  3. I suppose I have an active imagination, and writing allows me to live it out.
  4. The kids who speak well, are articulate and intelligent, are all readers.
  5. I was not a reader at all, not until I discovered The Hobbit. That changed my life. It gave me the courage to read. It led me to the ‘Lord of the Rings’ series. And once I’d read that, I knew I could read anything because I had just read thousands of pages.
