I must recommend two authors...

Brandon Sanderson and Joyce Dipastena, but obviously not for the same reasons, because they both write in completely different genres. I’ve chatted personally with both of them, and have read both of their works.


Brandon is one of the most down-to-earth people I’ve ever met and talked to. Out of all the classes at the BYU writer’s conference I went to, his on creating your magical world was my favorite! I recently read “Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians” and laughed all the way through it. It was fast-paced and absolutely hilarious.

Joyce is a romance writer like me, but she sticks mostly in the medieval era. Her writing is rich, romantic and incredibly accurate. I recently read “Illuminations of the Heart” and loved it so much I couldn’t put it down until I’d finished.

Love Brandon Sanderson and was very impressed when I attended a book signing for him. I haven't read Joyce yet but she is in my TBR and I am hoping to read her soon. Enjoy your conference!

I agree about Joyce! She's a very talented writer. Never read Sanderson, though. Will keep her in mind.
