December's FEATURED AUTHOR: Theresa's favorite reads...

December 15, 2010
Today, Theresa Danley shares her all-time favorite and recently-enjoyed books with us...

I have such differing moods that it is hard for me to determine a few favorite books I’ve read. I read what I’m in the mood for – sometimes that means a little mystery or thriller, sometimes it’s something more along the lines of the old west or a great adventure. Every once in a blue moon I might even pick up a romance, and every now and again I get in the mood for something more literary.

My all time favorite book is Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. However, right now I am really into thrillers. More specifically, I like James Rollins. Just about any book of his is a favorite read. I was recently introduced to Sean Ellis’ high energy, Adventures of Dodge Dalton, which I found very enjoyable. The first mystery that I recall really enjoying was A Thief of Time by Tony Hillerman and still enjoy some of his books.

I love to read about the way things were, both in fiction and in non-fiction. So again, Larry McMurtry comes to mind, but that also brings me to some older classics you might not find in print anymore by authors such as Willa Cather, John Steinbeck and Wallace Stegner. More contemporary works about the way things were that I really enjoyed were Sara Gruen’s Water For Elephants and All The Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy.

Finally, there is a long list of authors that are on my must read list, but just a few of them are Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Gary Val Tenuta, and J.A. Jance.

There are a lot of authors and books listed that I've never heard of, much less read... Guess I'll have to check some of them out! Thanks, Theresa!
