I love to read, so I’ve got a long list of favorite authors in several genres. There are too many to name them all, but I thought I’d try to hit every letter in the alphabet for author last names. Obviously, some letters were easier than others.
A — Lara Adrian
B —Mary Balogh, Meljean Brook, Lois McMaster Bujold
C —P.C. Cast, Jayne Castle, Janet Chapman, Loretta Chase, Kresley Cole
D — Kathleen Dante, MaryJanice Davidson, Doris M. Disney, Christina Dodd, Autumn Dawn
E — Cynthia Eden
F — Christine Feehan, Jacquelyn Frank
G — R. Garland Gray
H — Laurell K. Hamilton, Molly Harper, Charlaine Harris, Sandra Hill, Emma Holly
I — Washington Irving
J — JAX, Stephanie James
K — Sherrilyn Kenyon, Angela Knight, Jayne Ann Krentz
L — Stephanie Laurens, Marjorie M. Liu, Kathy Love, Tara Lain
M — Patrick F. McManus, Teresa Medeiros, Karen Miller
N — E. Nesbit, Kim Newman
O — Baroness Orczy, Robin Owens
P — Mary Jo Putney
Q — Amanda Quick, Julia Quinn
R — Anne Rice, J. D. Robb/Nora Roberts, Michelle Rowen
S — Nalini Singh, Linnea Sinclair, Fred Saberhagen, Kerrelyn Sparks, Robin Schone
T — J. R. R. Tolkien, Vickie Taylor
U — Allen Upward
V — Lisa Valdez, Piper Vaughn
W — J. R. Ward, C. L. Wilson, Kate White, Cynthia Woolf
X — umm…okay so I don’t know an author whose last name starts with X.
Y — Rebecca York
Z — Roger Zelazny because that’s the only “Z” author I’ve read that I can come up with.
Well, there you have it. X was the only one to stump me, so I’d say that’s pretty good. I guess I’ll have to keep an eye out for an author with the last name Xavier or Xu.
