My Top Ten Favorite Authors
M. Tara Crowl
Wholly original, endlessly playful, and dark around the edges. Like millions of others, I adore Roald Dahl’s writing. He has probably influenced me more than any other writer.
First, I read Strangers on a Train; then, The Talented Mr. Ripley and the rest of the Ripley series, then This Sweet Sickness, then The Cry of the Owl. The more Highsmith I read, the more I had to read. Her writing is crisp and spare; her characters are captivating; the way she builds tension is flawless.
I read A Wrinkle in Time for the first time when I was in the first grade. My teacher saw that I loved to read, and she gave it to me as a challenge. It changed me forever. I love L’Engle’s other books too, but A Wrinkle in Time is pure magic; in my opinion, it’s just about perfect. I’ll be reading it again and again for my whole life.
So much has been said about the Harry Potter books, and rightly so. I feel honored to have been a reader when they were written. I think, in a way, they changed the world. It astounds me that Quidditch, Hogwarts, and Muggles were all created in J.K. Rowling’s head, and now the whole world is familiar with them. Continue reading “Top Ten Favourite Authors”
I am very glad to have author Andrew Joyce as a guest on my blog today. To start things off, I’ve been provided with a little information about him.
Andrew Joyce left high school at seventeen to hitchhike throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. He wouldn’t return from his journey until decades later when he decided to become a writer. Joyce has written four books, including a two-volume collection of one hundred and forty short stories comprised of his hitching adventures called BEDTIME STORIES FOR GROWN-UPS (as yet unpublished), and his latest novel, RESOLUTION. He now lives aboard a boat in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his dog, Danny, where he is busy working on his next book, YELLOW HAIR. Continue reading “Guest Post + Book Blurb: Andrew Joyce”
