“Let me tell you a secret: there is no such thing as an uninteresting life.”
I have fallen in love many times. One of my first loves was Dustfinger, the dark but caring misfit from Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart series. As I grew, I learned to love more complex characters, falling deeply for Alobar, the king-turned-nomad of Tim Robbins’s Jitterbug Perfume. I was helpless to Mr. Darcy’s classic romance, a love with which most readers of Pride and Prejudice would identify.
