Authors I enjoy:
Patricia Briggs - The Mercy Thompson series is very good. I'm not caught up, but eventually...
J.R. Ward - The Black Dagger brotherhood is an entertaining read. I've read the first 9 books.
Highly recommend books 3-5 and 7-8.
Stephen King - I probably don't need to say much about Stephen King's stories. While they can
be a little overly-detailed for me, the man has great ideas.
Dean Koontz - The only Koontz I've read is Frankenstein (read the first book, started the second). I found it quite good.
I enjoyed the movie Odd Thomas, so I plan to give that a read at some point.
James Patterson - Okay, I'm cheating here. I haven't actually read any of his books, but I did enjoy the Alex Cross movies, and the television show Zoo.
I've read part of one of his books, can't remember which one, nor why I stopped. Probably distracted by my own writing as usual.
Still, Kiss the Girls was an excellent story, IMO.
