These Authors are burned into my mental hall of fame not for one book, but for a series or multiple works that are all equally fascinating.
Elisa Marie Hopkins
A Pen name of Gillian Rubenstein
Author of: Tales of the Otori Series, Grass for his Pillow Series, and Brilliance of the moon series.
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.
Author of: Spy Goddess Series, Youngest Templar series
