Five Books That Influenced Me in my Teen Years
2. George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. Big Brother is watching you. Wow, the idea that people can give up their privacy, spy on their neighbors, and have their worst fears used against them is pretty scary.
3. Joan Lindsay’s Picnic at Hanging Rock. Oh, the unsettling beauty of this book. It’s a classic in Australian literature and still gives me shivers.
4. Raymond E. Feist’s Magician. The world-building. The magic. Need I say more?
5. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. The sheer imagination in these books is breathtaking.
What Made you Become an Author?
I grew up surrounded by women who had no voice in their lives. They weren’t expected to be educated, to have dreams or hopes or the opportunity to work outside the home. Instead, they expressed themselves in the written word – in letters and in poetry. I still have my grandmother’s letters to me, written in her elegant, swirly handwriting, and they inspire me to tell a story. The story of a girl who refuses to be made powerless and fights for her freedom.
Thanks so much for having me here today!
Everly Frost wrote her first story when she was nine. She grew up in a country town, lived for a little while in Japan, and worked for several years in Canberra, Australia's capital city. Now, Everly lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband and two children. She doesn't speak Japanese so often anymore, has left the cold Canberra winters behind, but has never stopped writing.
