Books I Love
I have been influenced by many writers over the years, their stories have become part of who I am, sparking my imagination. These are only a few of my favorite writers and books.

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie series. I must have read them all half a dozen times as a kid.

Lucy Maude Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series. Not only do I know the movies by heart (which only vaguely resemble the books) but I’ve read the books over and over.

Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones. I know this is intended for new readers, but the character is hilarious. I could read this stuff to my nieces all day.

Jane Austen. I own all her completed novels, and again, have read them all multiple times. They take a little time to get into, but the characters are so 3-dimensional and ridiculous you have to love them. Or at least, I have to.

JK Rowling. So Harry Potter wasn’t around when I first started writing, nevermind when I grew up, but I still love her series.

I admit, I love Victorian-Era writers, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of being Ernest is one of the most hilarious plays I’ve ever seen or read. I also love novels by The Bronte Sisters, and though Charles Dickens takes even longer to get into than Jane Austen, I love his character sketches and am working my way through his works as well.

As for more contemporary works...these are a few of the most recent books I’ve bought, loved and will read again:

Rules of Engagement by Stephanie Fowers (see all books) is my most recent read, a hilarious chick-lit story about an apartment of girls in a BYU student ward and playing the dating game.

My Not-So-Fairy-Tale Life by the fabulous Julie Wright (see all books).

To Have or To Hold by my favorite editor and writer Josi Kilpack (see all books).

I recently discovered Stephanie Black's mystery/suspense books. She's won awards for best mystery/suspense book by an LDS author for the past two years running. Most recently for Methods of Madness which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Also high on that list is Traci Hunter Abramson, whom I've been hearing great things about for a while, but recenlty picked up her book "Lockdown."

Just recently I've run across Inspirational romantic suspense author Dee Henderson's stories on audio book and have been enjoying them a lot! you can check out the book blurbs and first chapters to her books on her website.
