Favorite Authors Websites

Post by Ghostlady » Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:20 pm

I like to check my favorite authors websites occasionally looking for their new books. So I am starting a list here. If anyone else has an author they would like to add, please post here and I'll add it to the list.

I've heard that a couple of sci-fi authors I like have websites, but I haven't had a chance to visit them yet.

I like Kristin Hannah's books. Her Winter Garden, which my book group discussed last month, was excellent.
Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

I haven't read Winter Garden yet. I have it sitting on my shelf though.

I see we have 3 of her books in our local library but not Winter Garden.

Summer Island, Night Island and Distant Shores - what sort of books does she write?

Kristin Hannah is drama fiction. She always has a story about love, redemption, loss, hope, etc. I haven't read any books of hers that have not made me cry. She can stir that much emotion. There are not many authors that can do that to me. Especially, Firefly Lane. OMG, that book tore me apart. Comparable to the movie Madame X, where there is no stopping the tears. Her later books are better than her earlier ones, since those were more on the romantic side.

Here are some youtube videos:
