Authors List
This list is by no means complete. I started with authors I've read the most of/ read the most times. I expect this list to grow and change.

Laurell K. Hamilton
Got to see her when she visited Ann Arbor on book tour. Had just discovered the Anita books and was all starry eyed. The first time I ever went to a reading by a published author. Got to review Bullet and still in love with the series, including the sex and violence.

Philippa Gregory
Just discovered her 18th Century work, but haven't touched the Tudors yet.
Read my reviews of Wideacre, The Favored Child, and (forthcoming) Meridon and A Respectable Trade.

Diana Gabaldon
Got to review The Exile: An Outlander Graphic Novel. Still psyched over this!! Got to meet and lunch with Diana in Jackson a couple years ago, along with Beverly Jenkins. It was such a great day.

Patricia Briggs
Eternal fav and just waiting to get my greasy mits on Masques. Loved the graphic novel Mercy Thompson: Homecoming. Got to see her in Ann Arbor two years ago and it was fantastic!
