Favorite Reads

I am often asked, as a writer what do I Like to read. Well, I’m all over the map on that one. I love science-fiction, romance, westerns, murder mysteries, big historicals – it all depends on my mood. As to favorite authors (those whom we read over and over and never get tired of their tales) I’m fond of Maeve Binchy, the humorous Irish writer, and Scottish mystery writer Alanna Knight. I’m a big fan of Victoria Holt (having recently re-read “Mistress of Mellyn”). I love Larry McMurtry of “Lonesome Dove” fame, and Ray Bradbury for his fabulous Martian stories. Joseph Wambaugh for his outrageous and hilarious cop stories. And let’s not forget the classics: I have been in love with “Jane Eyre” since I was twelve years old. And Hemmingway – “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” blows me away every time. Well, the list goes on. I’m sure a lot of you out there have favorites whom you read over and over. What could be better than sitting beside a nice warm fire, cup of tea nearby, and curled up with one of your favorite books?
