My reading is usually tied to my writing, and since my new novel is about Anne Shakespeare that means I have spent the past three years immersed in Elizabethan literature. So it’s not always easy for me to answer when people ask for a recommendation on current books.
And why follow the crowd and read the usual best-sellers when you can be adventurous and discover a splendid new author for yourself? Bookstores and libraries are full of volumes begging to be read. My favorite book is always the one I’m going to read–or write–next.
