I am a romance author who writes mostly young adult books. Growing up, I was a frequent visitor to the library, and I left with armloads of books. My favorite authors were Lois Duncan and Christopher Pike, but I also read lots of teen romances--and Stephen King!
My love of reading led me to pen my own stories, some of which I still have in my old notebooks. These days I write on my computer, but what hasn't changed is my love of books. Some of my favorite authors currently are Maggie Dallen, Kasie West, Kelly Oram, and Piper Lawson. I also love Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon, and I highly recommend it!
