Reading is a joy, a wonderful adventure into a world traveled through words and imagination. As an author, I have been blessed with the opportunity to meet many people who share my occupation of diving into a fictional world and coming out the other side with a finished manuscript. We won’t talk about the blood, sweat, and tears that occur during the revising and editing process.
Several of my author friends made it onto my list of favorites, not only because they are talented writers, but also because I appreciate how much of their wit and humor is shared within the pages of their novels.
This bestselling novelist (and local author!) shares some of her favorite books, ranging from classics to modern novels to stories for teens and children.
