Milton Ozaki
Helen Nielsen
Dolores Hitchens
Ennis Willie
Roy Huggins
Lester Dent
Joseph Nazel
Marwan Muasher
C.V. Wedgwood
Frank Gruber

Theodore A. Tinsley
Diale Tlholwe
Alexandre Moret
Eduardo Galeano
Brian Garfield
Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo
Dietrich Kalteis
Tony Black

Till now, I have never thought of getting acquainted with new authors. I read the same people and the known ones. But it will be different next time.:D

I don't set out to read new authors, but circumstances sometimes lead me in that direction. The results are often pleasing.

Kathy, I don't know Diana Chamberlain. But it appears she has written around nine novels.

If an author I'm about to read for the first time has written a series, I'll generally start with the first book or else with one that grabs me with its first sentence. In either case, I relish the knowledge that if I like the book, I'll have more to read.

And I agree that auto-correct sucks, especially when it I have to override it three or four times before I can get it to stop incorrectly correcting me.
