i'm part of a "favorite authors" list

Sara over at Fiction Fusion blogged about "Non-Famous Favorite" Authors.

She asks, "Who’s your favorite author that other people are NOT reading? The one you want to evangelize for, the one you would run popularity campaigns for? The author that, so far as you’re concerned, everyone should be reading–but that nobody seems to have heard of. You know, not JK Rowling, not Jane Austen, not Hemingway–everybody’s heard of them. The author that you think should be that famous and can’t understand why they’re not…"

i know i'm one of my kids' favorite authors, and i know i'm my brother and mom's favorite author, but i never expected to be part of someone else's list, so when i read Sara's list, i was really surprised to find my name in her list of four authors: "Michelle Gregory---"Eldala" The kind of book you reread the end over and over and over and over...."

all i can say is, "Wow! Thanks, Sara."

if i were to put together a list, i'd have to put my writing partner Kristal Shaff at the top. i never get tired of reading her fantasy fiction.

who are some of your favorite non-famous authors?

Thanks Michelle! I couldn't do it without you. You're my writing lifeline.

Michelle Gregory said...

That's awesome news, Michelle! What a great compliment! I think I would have to list Stephanie from Hatshepsut (I'm dying to read her book) and Terresa from The Chocolate Chip Waffle - her writing is so beautiful it leaves me breathless. :-)
