Yes, writers have favorite authors. I probably have too many to actually list. Possibly, the most recent book I’ve read is my favorite.
Here’s a few favorites: Jinx Schwartz, Susan Meier, Donna Andrews, Diane Vallere, Rhys Bowen, Kaye George, Tamar Myers, Dorothy Gilman (oh, that goes way back), Lois Winston, oh, there are just too many! Right now I’m reading a book by Joanna Campbell Slan, Paper, Scissors, Death. Maybe she’ll turn out to be my favorite author (today, anyway).
Most of those I listed are mystery writers. I like books with a bit of history, many that are considered cozy, several who are bit woo, woo (ghosts, future worlds, for instance), oh, and with animals or boats, or.… Another favorite author — mustn’t forget Sharon Huss Roat — my daughter who writes young adult.
Books are wonderful, don’t you think?
