Happy Birthday Washington Irving

Today's post is dedicated to the author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving.

Washington Irving was only seven years old when our nation received its independence.  Born on April 3, 1783, he became an exceptional writer.
To this day, I remember the first time I read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  Afterward, my teacher let us watch the movie, which was just as creepy as the text.  I still have a vision of Ichabod Crane being chased by the headless horseman.

I like to believe at a young age I had a good taste in literature, even if all of my favorites were a bit on the spooky side.

Who is your favorite short story writer?
