Books on my forever shelf…Auntie Mame, by Dennis Patrick. This one is a favorite, and one I read to my stepfather out loud when he was dying. All of Anne Rice’s Lestat series, and the Witching Hour, too. I have my worn copy of Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux, and a much loved copy of Erma Bombeck’s The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank. Christopher Moore’s Lamb is a keeper, as is Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Stephen King’s It.
I love humorous historical romances, action packed, please, with lots of laughs. Johanna Lindsey delivers, as does Christina Dodd. Catherine Coulter’s historical novels rock. Bernard Cornwell’s Arthur trilogy is a great way to spend a weekend reading. Wilbur Smith and Jack Whyte are also some of my historical heroes.
My goal as a writer is to be designated “keeper shelf” status – a story brought out when someone wants a feel good happy ever after adventure J
