On My Bookshelf

To learn to write, writers must do two things: write—and read.

So what does a fantasy/sci-fi writer like me read? Well, the answers might surprise you. Here are ten books in my stack, either being read or slated to be read soon:

  • Restorer’s Son by Sharon Hinck (Adult alternate reality fantasy, CBA)
  • Crimson Eve by Brandilyn Collins (Adult suspense, CBA)
  • The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner (YA Greek Mythology, ABA)
  • Revelations of a Single Woman by Connally Gilliam (Adult nonfiction Christian living, CBA)
  • Scarlet by Steven Lawhead (Adult medieval fantasy, CBA)
  • The Nephilim Seed by James Scott Bell (Adult thriller, CBA)
  • Time Lottery by Nancy Moser (Adult fiction, CBA)
  • Reluctant Burglar by Jill Elizabeth Nelson (Adult mystery, CBA)
  • The Kindling by Jennifer Armstrong and Nancy Butcher (YA apocalyptic fiction, ABA)
  • The Jamestown Adventure: Accounts of the Virginia Colony, 1605-1614 Edited by Ed Southern (Adult nonfiction history, ABA)

That should keep me busy for a while, don’t you think?
