When I want to read for pure enjoyment, I’ll go for an inspirational romance, either suspenseful or light-hearted. Or both. Actually, I love stories that fit Alfred Hitchcock’s definition of a good story: “Like life with the dull parts cut out.” So heartbreak, comedy, drama, and suspense all have their place in the stories I love to read and love to write. Books like my first novel, Melody’s Song.
Non-fiction books that challenge and inspire me fill several shelves. Books on Christian living, Bible studies, gardening guides, a few children’s books, and craft books enrich my life.
Actually, each book I’ve read over the years has, in some way, enriched my life. And that’s the real reason we read, isn’t it?
