Hello,


I'm Lucia. I am a 13 year old Catholic, and my main interests are drawing, painting, knitting, crocheting, scrap booking, and most of all, reading. My favorite authors besides Chesterton are Sir A.C. Doyle, Jane Austen, C.S. Lewis, and P.G. Wodehouse. I came across G.K. Chesterton a few years ago, as I was looking for something interesting to read. I came across the Father Brown Crime Stories short story collection in on a shelf in my family's basement. Crimes solved by a priest? What a cool idea! This was bound to be interesting. As I started reading the first short story, I thought that wow! this guy was a good writer. I was hooked. After that, I read the entire Father Brown Omnibus. I haven't read anything else of Chesterton's, but I'll be going to the library tomorrow and I'm planning to check out TMWWT and some poetry by him.
