Love an Author Month - My Favorite Authors (Part 3)

Jill at Go Teen Writers wrote a post about Love an Author month and all the different ways we can help an author out. So, to show my love and appreciation for authors, I've decided to highlight some of my favorites in a series of posts.

In no particular order, some writers I adore...

Sherwood Smith. I'm ashamed to say that I have read only two books by this author, but to be fair, I've read them twice and will read them again! With over forty books published, Ms. Smith is a writer of fantasy, historical romance, and science fiction.

I recommend: Crown Duel

Melanie Dickerson. Now here's an author to feed a fairy tales obsession! Ms. Dickerson writes the sweetest YA fairy tale retellings, and I've read everything she's published so far.
Francine Rivers. This wonderful lady writes Biblical and Christian Historical Fiction. Every book of hers that I've read has had me glued to the page.
I recommend: A Voice in the Wind
Anne Elisabeth Stengl. I'm hooked on Ms. Stengl's YA Fantasy series, The Tales of Goldstone Wood. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to get Starflower soon, but until then I'll just gush about her books to everyone else!
I recommend: Heartless
J.K. Rowling. Well, I couldn't NOT mention a writer of her brilliance. I will always, ALWAYS come back to the Harry Potter series, and I applaud Ms. Rowling for creating such a complex story children and adults alike can enjoy.

Check out these authors and their writing! And show some love for YOUR favorite authors by purchasing one of their books, writing a positive review, telling your friends about them, etc. Authors work extremely hard to create stories for us to enjoy. Let's show them how much we appreciate them this month!


  1. I love Anne Elisabeth Stengl's Tales of Goldstone Wood series. Her writing is so beautiful and all of her characters and plots are so complex. I recently finished Veiled Rose, and it was amazing-even better than Heartless. I really felt for the characters, and especially Rose. That ending broke my heart.

    1. That's exactly why I love her books. The last one I finished was Moonblood. Unfortunately, my library doesn't have the series, so I have to wait until I can buy the next one :(

  2. Have you read Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers yet? It was heavy in content (think the Atonement Child and Redeeming Love) but it was wonderful.

    1. Not yet! But if it's as good as Redeeming Love, or her Mark of the Lion series then sign me up! :)

  3. Except for Harry Potter, I've never read anything by these authors. But they sound pretty cool, so I'm adding them to my TBR AKA The List That Never Ends

    1. :D I know something about that list....
