CONFESSIONS OF A STORY-TELLER. I can’t say for certain when the urge to tell a story first came to me, but I suspect it was when I read Kipling’s The Jungle Book. It wasn’t a mystery, of course, like the books I was later to write, but I can remember to this day how the adventures of Mowgli and his animal friends gripped me, how I was swept away into another world on another continent.
