These days, authors who write more than one book often write in more than one genre and I  do not always like everything they have written. But the ones I do like I re-read often.

Dick Francis

I love the integrity and resourcefulness of his characters – and the horses. He died in 2010 but his son, Felix, has taken over seamlessly. They research varied backgrounds and give interesting insights into the characters’ professions.

Karin Slaughter

I love the way Will Trent overcomes his severe dyslexia.

Katharine Eliska Kimbriel

She wrote the Spiral Path trilogy about Alli Sorensson.

Lee Child

He looks such a mild man – but he knows everything Jack Reacher does.

Nora Roberts

I reread her thick mysteries and the Bride Quartet. I love how she conveys the importance of family and friends. I also read the In Death series but she writes enough of those that I don’t need to reread them.

I find Judith McNaught and Susan Wiggs similar but I don’t reread them so often.

Robin McKinley

It was she who started me on fairy-tale retellings. Her imagination is amazing because each book is so different. The first book I read was The Blue Sword and I did not know it was fantasy when I bought it.

Sunshine’s stream of consciousness fascinates me – for the masterful punctuation as well as the endearing character it reveals.

Rosemary Kirstein

The Steerswoman series is a fascinating exploration of anthropology.

Tamora Pierce

She sets a very high standard for writers of fantasy for teenagers.

W.R. Gingell

How does she write such in-depth characterisation so quickly? She is a master of the art of suggestion, telling you just enough to keep you reading.
