A couple of weeks ago, I alluded to the fact that we would be featuring our first author interview. Sharon Shinn is an author that Janine and Jayne
forced introduced to me years ago. I was reluctant to read Shinn because she is classified as a fantasy author and even a few years ago fantasy seemed a genre that was totally uninteresting to me. What can I say but that I caved to peer pressure and am so glad that I did.
Shinn has slowly worked her way on to my Auto TBB list, even in hardcover. Her books feature consistently good writing and, importantly to me, a strong romance thread. To give you an idea of the scope of her writing ability, this week will present four reviews from Jayne, myself and our friend, Janine. Each book is a keeper for us and each one is different. On Monday, we’ll feature a lengthy interview with Ms. Shinn herself as she tells us about her writing, her views of romance and what readers can look forward to from her in the future. She truly is a buried treasure and I am glad to have this forum to share with other readers a favorite author of mine. If you haven’t read her, consider picking up a book of hers from the library and trying her out.
