These story makers have written tales that captured my attention and thoughts for days and even weeks on end. I look forward to their next books and would be absolutely thrilled to meet them. Even more, I’d love to sit with them over a cup of coffee and discuss their wonderful works. So in no particular order, I give you my Top 5 authors I want to meet:
1 Amanda M Lee.
I’ve got several posts on my blog about books and cozy mystery series by this author. To some extent, her books were an inspiration to get to blogging as I wanted to chit chat about some of my favourite characters from her books. With 5+ series running concurrently, she’s a phenomenal indie author!
2 Jane Austen.
It may be a little difficult to meet this lady of the 19th century! Doesn’t change the fact that I’d love a chat with Ms. Austen to discuss her inspirations and what it was really like for a woman author living in those times.
I did an author spotlight on Catherine Bybee some time ago. I adore her romance stories. She creates loveable heroines and drool worthy heroes. With several series under her belt, Ms. Bybee shows no signs of slowing down. How does she do it?
4 Nora Roberts.
For years romance novels equalled the Danielle Steele books I found on my mother’s bookshelf. Then I discovered Nora Roberts and she became my Danielle. While my mother may have thought I was too young to be reading her Danielle Steele, we eventually ended up swapping copies of our Nora Roberts books. I think she was the first author from whom I read romantic suspense novels.
James is a fellow blogger and will probably be amused at being added to this list. Hey, you and Roda seemed to have had quite the time the other day! You’ve turned yourself into a hot commodity Jay. All joking aside, Jay’s first novel, Watching Glass Shatter, was one of my favourite reads from last year. This year, to my great excitement, I’ve been able to beta read for his second novel. Wishing you much success with that one too my friend.
Update: I cannot believe I forgot to put J K Rowling on my list! Late night writing! Anyway, of course I’d love to meet J K. I find her personal story to be just as captivating as the enchanting world she created for Harry Potter. Anyone with that level of imagination is someone I want to meet.
What about you? Any favourite authors you’d like to meet?
