Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's subject: Top Authors you'll always buy from
Honestly, I've done this on my Author Idols page. But, as some of those idols are gone or otherwise not writing, here's what we're left with.
1) Jerry Spinelli
When Jerry Spinelli was a kid, he wanted to grow up to be either a cowboy or a baseball player. Lucky for us he became a writer instead.
2) John Green
3) Eoin Colfer
4) Michael Spradlin
Michael P. Spradlin is the author of more than a dozen books for children, some of which have actually been published. He grew up in a small town in Michigan not far from the Indiana border, which may explain his irrational fear of Hoosiers. (Both the inhabitants of the state of Indiana and the movie starring Gene Hackman).
Surrounded by books in his formative years, he grew up loving to read, imagining himself the hero of numerous epic battles and indulging in his favorite pastime, which was smuggling fireworks across the Ohio border so that he could blow up his collection of Plastic Green Army Men and Matchbox Cars.
5) Taylor Mali
