With this whole writing gig, I’ve been doing a lot of research on authors, specifically LDS authors: who they are, where they’re being published, and that kind of stuff. And let me say, there are TONS of LDS authors out there in the publishing world. I had no idea. And many of them are not just writing for the LDS market, but are doing extremely well in the national market, like Ally Condie for example (if you haven’t read MATCHED, read it, it’s great). So that got me wondering…
Who is your favorite LDS author and why?
What do you like about their style?
What is your favorite book they’ve written?
I’m always looking for good books to read and while I don’t exclusively read LDS authors because that would be strange, now that I realize how many are out there, I’m curious to read more of their stuff. I’ve been following the Whitney Awards for some time (if you don’t know what that is, more info here) which has alerted me to some really amazing books, but I’m very curious to see how you guys would answer those three questions.
Comment below if you have a second.
