Yes, I love to read. I've been reading *constantly* since I was able to distinguish words. Since that time, the paranormal genre has been my overall favorite. Well, I guess to use many words, I like mysteries with a paranormal element, and sometimes with romance, which take place in a relatively modern setting. I like books that take place in the "future" (J.D. Robb's series is great) and books that take place in the "past" (like Amanda Quick's Arcane Society books), but I prefer settings in the here-and-now. So, to get back to the point of this list, I decided to start a list of authors to help others on their search for authors they haven't read before that fit into this broad category. I've read everything I've put in this list and found something in the book/series that I recommend. And, I've only listed the first book of series books. You can do a search on Amazon to find the others. To note, sometimes not every book in a series is great, but I've found something in the overall series to recommend the whole thing. Or, an author's debut may not be fantastic, but I've seen potential for good things. I also have 2 others: "So you'd like to...Find a New Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy Author Part 2" and "...Part 3" if you would like to take a look at more authors and a listmania list "Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Soon-to-be Published." Just click at the bottom of this page under More Actions. I will add more as time permits. Two little children keep me pretty busy! Have fun!
