To me, Ninja authors are authors whose books I have read and re-read, book-marked with red and yellow stickers at the edges so I can always go back to the scenes I so much enjoyed in the book. I'd say also I enjoy their style of writing, the emotion potrayed in the story, the characters...
On the historical romance front, my Ninja Author is Judith McNaught. I have read almost every book she has written. I fell in love with her work after reading Whitney, My Love.
Under the dark, languorous eyes of Clayton Westmoreland, the Duke of Claymore, Whitney Stone grew from a saucy hoyden into a ravishingly sensual woman. Fresh from her triumphs in Paris society, she returned to England to win the heart of Paul, her childhood love...only to be bargained away by her bankrupt father to the handsome, arrogant Duke. Outraged, she defies her new lord.
But even as his smoldering passion seduces her into a gathering storm of desire, Whitney cannot, will not, relinquish her dream of perfect love.
On the Urban Fantasy, Paranormal
Cassandra Clare: The Mortal Instruments
Oh, and Terry Prachett. Just adore his books. I'm reading this one at the moment
Aw...not to forget Francine Rivers.
These are a few of writers I truly enjoy reading their novels.
So I am still looking around for more Ninja Authors. Any recommendations? Who are your Ninja Authors?
