1. Alan Stromberg - April 14, 2011

Dear Ronica, I must admit to buying your book The Glass Inheritance (on the UK site of ebay) simply because our surnames are the same. In England, Stromberg is a most unusual name and in buying a few individual presents for my son Olivers’ 11th birthday in March, it seemed a good addition. Oliver has just finised and really enjoyed it, reading the second half in one sitting. When I asked him what he thought of it, he made some interesting points : he said the children didn’t seem to have a father (I am a single-father – so Oliver only knows having me around!); he said it really made him think about talking to his grandparents – he is lucky still to have 4 to talk to; he thought it was a good, believable and accurate portrayal of brother / sister relations, and he enjoyed picking up hints about American family life. Thank you for giving him a great read in our Easter holidays,

Ronica Stromberg - April 14, 2011

Thanks for letting me know about your experience with The Glass Inheritance. I’m glad Oliver enjoyed it. Even though the main character in the book is a girl, boys who read the book seem enthusiastic about it. I had one sixth grader talk it up to his teacher so much she invited me to the school–out of curiosity, I think. Sometimes as an author you picture one audience, but your readers may turn out to be entirely different. How exciting to think that my book ended up in the hands of a boy in England! I do have an English publisher, Lion-Hudson, for my picture book, The Time-for-bed Angel, so I knew that had overseas sales, but my books for older children are published by a small American press, so it is a bit surprising you found it.

My last name, Stromberg, is actually Swedish, and it is quite common in Sweden. “Strom” means “stream” and “berg” means “mountain,” so it’s a geographical name. My ancestors must have lived by a mountain stream. Perhaps yours too. 🙂 Thanks for giving my book a chance based on our shared surname!
