Hi, I'm not necessarily doing this list of authors specifically for the wish list, but if they found their way on any part of bookshare, my feelings wouldn't be hurt. Years ago, some people gave me a list of authors, some I had never heard of, and some I had. I plan on seeing if they all have bookshare spots, but if not, maybe someday they will, and if anybody happens to have anything by them laying around or has access to them, we wouldn't be hurt for any additions to the bookshare family of books. With that being said, here comes a list of authors. Please excuse any garbage characters or repeats. Ginny Aiken - contemporary Hannah Alexander - contemporary medical romance Lynn Austin - historical Karen Ball - contemporary Ann Bell - contemporary James Scott Bell - historical Lisa Tawn Bergren - contemporary Lawana Blackwell - historical Stephen Bly - historical T. Davis Bunn - historical Linda Chaikin - historical and contemporary Dianne L. Christner - historical Colleen Coble - historical and contemporary Lynn A. Coleman - historical and contemporary Carol Cox - historical and contemporary Lori Copeland - historical and contemporary Lyn Cote - contemporary Birdie L. Etchison - historical Linda Ford - historical JoAnn A. Grote - historical and contemporary Robin Jones Gunn - contemporary Kristen Heitzmann - historical and contemporary Dee Henderson - contemporary Liz Curtis Higgs - contemporary Grace Livingston Hill - historical B. J. Hoff - historical Karen Kingsbury - contemporary Al and JoAnna Lacy - historical Al Lacy - historical Yvonne Lehman - contemporary Beverly Lewis - historical (Amish) C. S. Lewis - Chronicles of Narnia George MacDonald - historical Shari MacDonald - contemporary Gail Gaymer Martin - contemporary Dawn Miller - historical Judith McCoy Miller - historical Diane Mills - historical (Check out her book, "Mail Order Husband") Sara Mitchell - historical and contemporary Gilbert Morris - historical Gilbert Morris and Lynn Morris - historical (Father-Daughter writing team) Alan Morris - historical (Gilbert Morris's son) Diane Noble - historical Janette Oke - historical Cathrine Palmer - historical and contemporary Judith Pella - historical Judith Pella and Tracie Peterson - historical Tracie Peterson - historical and contemporary Michael Phillips - historical Michael Phillips and Judith Pella - historical Eugenia Price - historical Colleen L. Reece - historical and contemporary Lee Roddy - historical Debra White Smith - historical and contemporary Lauraine Snelling - historical Jill Stengl - historical and contemporary Peggy Stoks - historical Brock and Bodie Thoene - historical Jake and Luke Thoene - historical (Brock and Bodie Thoene's sons) Elizabeth White - historical and contemporary Stephanie Grace Whitson - historical Lori Wick - historical and contemporary Linda Windsor - historical and contemporary Carolyn Zane - contemporary Jack Cavanaugh Ted Dekker Francine Rivers /Sandy Dingler or DAngler (wrote about Australia--would like to read this author's stuff. Looking at this list, I've read many of these authors, but many more I have not. I also like Terry Blackstock, whoever wrote the Kencade books based on the Thomas Kencade paintings about a town in Massachusetts, Catherine Cookson, Meg Cabot, Georgette Hayer, Agatha Christie, Tim and Beverly Lahaye, Jerry B. Jenkins, Lois T. Henderson, as mentioned before Phyllis A. Whitney and Mary Higgins Clark, Ann George, L. M. Montgomery, Jane Peart, June Masters Bacher, Robin Lee Hatcher, and I am having more on the tip of my tongue but I can't remember them right now, but even if you read from places and organizations other than bookshare, I'd strongly recommend these authors and ones like them as they came from a reliable recommender and/or I read them myself. Happy reading and have a blessed day. PS: Besides maybe Michael Palmer and Hannah Alexander, can anybody recommend some good medical fiction? ER type stuff, hospital, doctor, nurse, anything. Have a blessed day.
