Lynda Rutledge, the author of West with Giraffes, didn’t dream of being a writer as a child. She was too busy dreaming of being a baseball player for the New York Yankees or playing tennis at Wimbledon. That fearless spirit would serve her well as an author and many of her adventures would inspire her work. From snorkeling with sea turtles to hang-gliding in the Swiss Alps, Lynda Rutledge has sought inspiration in her own life as much as in the great literature that influenced her to become a writer.

《长颈鹿男孩》的作者琳达.洛丽奇并非从小就梦想成为一名作家。她当时忙著梦想成为一名纽约洋基队的棒球选手或在温布顿网球锦标赛打网球。这种无所畏惧的精神对她作为一名作家很有帮助,而她的许多冒险经历激发了她的创作灵感。从和海龟浮潜到在瑞士阿尔卑斯山进行悬挂式滑翔运动,琳达.洛丽奇不仅在自身生活,也在影响她成为作家的伟大文学作品中寻找灵感。
