3/21/2023 Tell us about some famous author from your city/state/country

Famous? Mmmmmm I'm going to have to do some digging for this one. I know a few people that have written books that are from my state or city. I live in the US so I could list a few, but I'm going to try and research Michigan folks. *vanishes to the Googleverse*

*pops back*

Okay...here is what I found!

  • Lyssa Kay Adams! She wrote 'The Bromance Book Club' which I read a little while ago. She certainly is making a name for herself. :) I can't wait to read more by her. She currently lives in Michigan. Not sure if she was born and raised here, but cool that she is here. 
  • Steve Hamilton. I have seen his books everywhere so that is fun that he is a Michigander. Looks like he is known for mysteries and thrillers. I'll have to finally check out one of his books. 
  • Mitch Albom. Originally born in New Jersey, but he currently lives in Michigan. I feel like I knew this fact, but still nice to see a familiar name! Plus I have read many of his books! 

Those are the names that stuck out to me when thinking and researching. I'm sure I've seen (and maybe even read) some books by other Michigan folks. Here is a list I found that has a bunch of names of authors tied to Michigan in some way.

Great picks to rep our state, Carole.

I knew about Mitch Albom, but am tickled about Lyssa K Adams since i like her series. I didn't know about Steve Hamilton.

I picked Beverley Jenkins for my list. I love her books. Beyond that, I had to do some investigating, too.

Thanks, Sophia! I had no idea Beverly Jenkins is one!! :D

The first one I thought of is Kim Harrison who writes the Hollows series.

Anne - Books of My Heart

I haven't heard of them.

A friend of mine, Bronwyn Green, lives in Michigan. She hasn't had anything new in a while, but I loved her Bound series.

Carole Rae said...

Anne, I'll have to look into that!

Mary, the two are fun! The one I still need to check out.

Jen, fun!
