I enjoy Catherine Palmer and M. L. Tyndall books that have a touch of adventure. Susan Page Davis historicals are entralling, Ruth Axtell Morren's deep and romantic. Laura Frantz writes with a good measure of it all. I also like the novels of Cathy Marie Hake and Deeanne Gist who's blend of the whimsical with serious issues make the reading irresistable.
Though I know I'm not in league with any of these excellent authors, these are the kind of stories I try to write while working on my own unique style - and hopefully those that potential readers will someday want to devour!
What kind of novels do you tend to devour? What kind of stories do you write and hope readers can sink their teeth into?
