Reading Lists

Behind every writer is a collection of books they enjoy reading. Apparently I like an eclectic mix of science fiction and young adult novels that leans towards the fairy tale and medieval themes. I joked recently with another author that I need to quit reading so much because it was cutting into my writing time. “No!” she exclaimed. “Don’t stop!” If you stop reading your imagination could stop too. Not only that but it is a great way to support your favorite authors as well.

In an ever changing world books are always there. When I started this list it helped remind me what I’ve read how much I enjoyed a specific author or series. So I revamped it to have links on this main page one instead of trying to maintain an inevitably cumbersome main menu situation.

Happy reading and I hope you find some new loves on this list!
