Reviewed by JoAnne at Romancing the Book
This is an anthology that was written to raise funds for research in memory of Harry Mosely who died at 11 years of age. Nineteen authors each told about their writing, how they got into writing, what or who inspired them, their writing process, etc. After that brief bit of information, biographical tidbits were provided about each author, the genre they write in, a few titles of books they have written, and their family life. Then an excerpt from one of their books was shared.
I wasn't sure I would enjoy this because of its different type of premise, but I did. It was interesting to read about each author's writing or why they got into writing and just as enjoyable to find out facts about each writer and the genre they write in. I read stories that I normally wouldn't, i.e. paranormal, shape shifters, and animals. The stories I most favored were chick lit, cowboy theme and historical. Most of the excerpts were a good length but several were very short and didn't seem an appropriate piece to include. I found several authors that I will get their books to read to continue where the excerpt left off and several that I will add to my to be read pile.
