As I was thinking of some of my favorite fiction books, the books of several local author friends came to mind. I could not – in good conscious – pick up any certain one from them as that would be like a mom choosing her favorite kid.   So I decided to ask them to introduce to you  one of their books that they felt is either their favorite, their most fun to write or was the one that best represents them.





The Red Siren by MaryLu Tyndall

The Red Siren, because it’s an exciting, adventurous, romantic swashbuckling adventure that was a lot of fun to write. What’s not to love about a lady pirate who falls in love with the British Naval captain assigned to capture her?



Exp51Az1nl1hhL._SS500_osure by Brandilyn Collins

Have readers try Exposure, my latest adult novel and a bestseller. Like all my Seatbelt Suspense® novels, it features a fast pace from page one, multi-layered characterization, multiple twists, and a faith element that arises naturally from the cataclysmic events.



Only Uni by Camy Tang41rdb7vbYzL._SS500_

I would suggest my second Sushi book, Only Uni, because I think Trish’s character is one most people relate to as opposed to Lex, the heroine of book one in the series. Also, Trish’s struggles seem to have resonated with more people than Lex’s, if my fan mail is anything to go by. Trish’s struggles are very personal for me because they’re similar to what I had to deal with when I was still single.

Here are another two books that I enjoyed reading this year.


Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie  Ford
