What do you read for pleasure?
I read all genre because everything interests me. My favorites are Gothic horror stories, supernatural paranormal, mysteries, historical fiction, and cozies. I enjoy Sci-Fi and was a Trek fan almost my entire life. I write Paranormal/Supernatural books, however, history and romance are sprinkled into the storyline. Some of my favorite authors are Dean Koontz, Jeremy Bates, Alan Leverone, Paula Cappa, David Gaughran, JF Penn, Karen Slaughter, Kay Hooper, Neil Gaiman, Suzanna Williams, Susan Fleet, Grant McKenzie, John Grisham, Suzanne Collins, Diana Gabaldon . . . the list goes on. Some are Indie authors others are traditional published. There is room for all authors, all artists, and creative people.

Excellent source of garden information. Lots of ideas and good tips. I liked the way it's written, and enjoyed tidbits like 'the three sisters' tale.
