Recommended Reads


I’m often asked what my favorite book is. That’s a hard question to answer because I have many favorites and I’m always adding to the list. Also, it depends on my mood on any particular day. I read books in multiple genres, for children, teens, and adults, binging out as I discover new authors or revisit old favorites. That said, here is a partial list:
