As most people know, I love books. I have a to-be-read pile, as most writers do. I read mostly horror, but I also love any book that is just a good read---no matter the genre.
Reading Edgar Allen Poe and Stephen King as a young teenager, definitely fostered my love of reading and writing.
What are some of your favorite books and/or authors to read? Why are they your favorite? What was it about the writing that transported you into another world?
