Non-Famous Favorite Author (BBT)



Who’s your favorite author that other people are NOT reading? The one you want to evangelize for, the one you would run popularity campaigns for? The author that, so far as you’re concerned, everyone should be reading–but that nobody seems to have heard of. You know, not JK Rowling, not Jane Austen, not Hemingway–everybody’s heard of them. The author that you think should be that famous and can’t understand why they’re not…


I'd have to list more than one here, there's several "new" authors in the sense and I love all their books, very rarely do I narrow it down to one/two unless something pretty much just blows me away so far that I completely forget about any others...but...


Frank Creed--"Flashpoint" Truly excellent stuff, introduced me to a genre I didn't know existed.

Sue Dent---(Never Ceese) It's the book you lend someone and never get back...because they're busy lending it to all their friends. :)

Rick Higginson---"Cardan's Pod" ahh, yes. I cannot wait to see what else comes out from this brilliant pen.

Michelle Gregory---"Eldala" The kind of book you reread the end over and over and over and over....

Well, I'm more than honored and my most favorite, non-famous, famous author, because he has sold a couple of million books, is Jon Guenther of Soul Runner. If you don't check this book out you ARE missing something. Oh and Richard says hi! ;)
