Keeps Me Coming Back for More
I just returned from a ten day vacation with four children under the age of six. I took three books on this trip to read. I had HIGH hopes! Two of the books were brand new and one book I have read at least fifteen times. Which one do you think I squeezed in the time to read on my vacation? Yep, you guessed it. I made time to read the book I have already read over and over again. This is the book which got me reading romances in the first place. The title is Ransom and the author is Julie Garwood. I love this book and I adore Julie Garwood. I think she is just about one of the best romance authors around. As I was reading this book I began to wonder if most authors got into their particular genre because of some fabulous author they once read. Can any of you think of a particular author or book that got you reading romances? My fondest wish is to be the kind of writer who someone will think about years later and say I love her. I have read her books a thousand times, and she is why I am a romance writer. Here's to big wishes. May they come true!
