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.

/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.
