Q. How have your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?
My reading habits have changed a lot over the years and I think it’s fair to say I’ve come full circle! In my early teens I read a lot of Christopher Pike, R.L. Stine, Dean Koontz and Stephen King. Pretty much anything with a murderous or paranormal twist (although I never would have used the word paranormal at the time).
By the time I graduated, I’d moved on to thrillers and mysteries. I absolutely fell in love with Iris Johansen, Stuart Woods, and Tami Hoag. If they wrote it, I bought it. These books had it all: romance, mystery, suspense. I stuck with these authors loyally for years until my sister introduced me to the world of Stephanie Plum (my first foray into chick-lit) which had me cracking up and catching up since I was late to discover the series.
Eventually though I came full circle and found my way back to paranormal with Kay Hooper’s Bishop Special Crimes Unit series. When I ran out of my own favorite authors to read, I started raiding my younger sister’s book shelf where I came across Twilight and a myriad of other YA novels. I was hooked from the start and haven’t looked back since! In fact, I’ve got three of her books sitting in my book pile right now!
