My favorite experience as a reader is to be riveted by a book and simply unable to stop reading while time ticks by all around me. As you can imagine, this drives my family nuts. I have certain favorite authors (Linda Howard, Karen Robards, Patricia Cornwell, Lee Child, just to name a few), whose books seem to grab hold of me, shove me into a chair, and demand that I stay there until the very last page. Occasionally, I do get up to answer the phone, feed my family, or grab an Oreo, but sleep and other unnecessary activities fall by the wayside. What are your favorite page-turners? For me, they’re often mysteries or romantic suspense stories. Click here to read the rest of Laura’s blog and to leave a comment. Visit FreshFiction.com to learn more about books and authors.
