Susan McBride used to be a local author to me, but sadly I moved away. However, I had the opportunity to attend several of her events and she is one of THE most down-to-earth, friendliest authors I have ever met. I even would go so far as to consider her my friend!
Let's be honest ... Jodi Picoult is amazing! She braves difficult topics and she does it in style. Then, she went and wrote a book with her daughter, and I loved this. What a cool mom! Unfortunately, I cannot find any good photos from this event. They just did not turn out.
Now, isn't that better?!? As I write this, I realize that each and every one of these events can equally compete with all those male author events that I mentioned earlier. Thank goodness for the power of women writers!!
Who are some of your favorite female authors? Have you seen any of them in person? If so, tell me about them!
