solitude + inspiration
What new author did you try and love? Inquiring minds want to know!
Carly!! It was Marisa de los Santos.The first one of hers I tried was The Precious One. I get the sense she plays with, and revels in, words and language. I've read two others so far, and enjoyed them, too. I don't know if she'll pass your first person test though... but give her a chance. You two might make a good match.
Thanks! I'm always willing to give an author a try - even if they do write in the first person. ;)
