Interview with K. Surgenor

Who are your favorite authors?
I really love Karen Kingsbury, Max Lucado, Ted Dekker, Dee Henderson, Tamera Alexander and Jane Austen.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story i read and remember was Winnetou by Karl May, a german author. From those books i learnt that you don't have to be biologically related to somebody to consider him/her as brother or sister. It taught me that two people from different races, different backgrounds can live in peace with each other.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
BIBLE- it's God's word
Max Lucado, You'll get through this- he encourages me not to give up waiting and hoping, life will get better, because it is God's promise
Ted Dekker, Bone man's daughter- it shows how far a father is willing to go to prove his love for his daughter
Steven James, The Pawn- loved the suspense, the thriller
Karen Kingsbury, Unlocked- It showed me how much people with special needs are capable of loving
What do you read for pleasure?
crimes, inspirational books
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle
