Follow Friday (19)

Is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This is a blog hop for bloggers to get to know other bloggers, & to help some gain more of a following and support system for their blog. It looks like it should be a lot of fun. To join in, go to the host's page and follow the steps they have posted up there. =D

This week's question is...

What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

I am grateful that I was actually able to talk with my favorite author of all time. She was actually really down to Earth and answered every email I sent her. We talked briefly and it was really inspiring. LOL, I guess I should tell you who that is, her name is Bertrice Small. She is a historical romance writer and it was her books that really changed my life. While I may not be as much into historical romances as I used to, I can honestly say there was never a single one of her books that I did not absolutely ADORE. And I chalk it all up to her. She is the reason that I am such a book worm, she is the reason why I aspire to be an author and actually know that I can do it one day. And when I told her all this in the email I sent her, she just boosted me up even more. Gave me some pointers and told me to go for it. She is an amazing woman and if you have never been able to read any of her series, I HIGHLY recommend that you pick some of her books up. They are FABULOUS.

Here's her link on Goodreads:

Thank you Bertrice, for being the amazing writer that you are and for setting me on a path that changed my life.

I enjoy historical romances but I haven't come across Beatrice Small. She seems really awesome so I'll check her out! :)

@Melliane: That is awesome. I have been a fan of hers for years.

@Ellen: You should check her out if you get the chance.

@Dalene: Wow, I'm surprised that you haven't heard of her yet if you love historical romances.

@Kelsey: If you wanted to read any of her books I would definitely read 'Skye O'Malley', but that is a big series of books as well. Some other good ones to that I can think of off the top of my head are 'The Innocent', 'The Kadin', 'A Moment in Time', 'Unconquered', she has a lot more but those are some really good ones.

@Tasnin: You should definitely check out some of her books if you like historical romance.

Thank you all for the amazing comments. I will take a look at your FF's as well.
