Favorite Authors *with giveaway

I love lists so thought I’d try a few this week.  I have to admit that there are a few there by default. It’s fairly easy to be my favorite X author when I’ve only read one!  My favorite current authors from A-Z.

A Sarah Addison Allen

B Elizabeth Berg

C Harlan Coben

D Jeffery Deaver

E Janet Evanovich (although I’m taking an extended break from Stephanie Plum)

Fannie Flagg

G Diana Gabaldon

H Carl Hiaasen

I Greg Iles

J Brenda Joyse

K Dean Koontz

Elizabeth Lowell

M Judith McNaught

N  Carla Neggers

Yoko Ogawa

P Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Amanda Quick

R Les Roberts

S Anita Shreve

T Anne Tyler

U Lisa Unger

V John Verdon

W Kate White


Karen Young

Z Carlos Ruiz Zafon


I read this one and loved it (reviewed it here) so I picked up a hardback for one lucky reader.  If you like thrillers or mysteries I think you’ll love this one.

To enter just tell me you want it. I’ll draw a winner on October 19.

Birthday Photo

I grew up about 5 minutes from my grandparents (a proximity my parents still share with my grandmother) so when I went to prom my sophomore year they came over for the big night.  My grandma would often come over to stay with me when I was home from school, sick and my grandfather was the night janitor for my school system (sometimes my school) until he retired.

I went to prom with my friend, Dan and had fun.  I remember loving this dress.  I was so skinny then. (sigh)

    Hi Stacy, love the dress you’re wearing in your B-day photo! Are you a fan of Criminal Minds … did you see last week’s episode? Looks like that dress could be from the same era ish? When my Dad asked what I wanted for my b-day this past August, I replied “my before baby 23 y.o. figure back”. A giggle and a “can’t help you there, Wan” was what I got instead *sigh* … yes, I too, fondly remember my skinny days. 😉

    Another book probably won’t do much for my butt, but I’d like to enter anyway…

    Wow, I don’t think I could come up with a list and actually fill all the letter.

    I love the picture. You’re making me want to go through my mom’s old albums.

    I love the photo too. Your grandparents loved sharing special occasions, like prom, with you. You look really great in that dress!
