THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: If you could be best friends with an author, who would you choose and why?

When I thought about what author I’d like to be best friends with, three authors immediately came to my mind.

L.M. Montgomery, the author of the Anne of Green Gables series and Rosamunde Pilcher, author of Winter Solstice (as well as many other books) are two of the authors that I think I would like to be best friends with.  Both of these ladies write beautiful stories about families coming together under unlikely circumstances and enjoying the simple joys in life.  They create characters who are grateful for the love of family and the beauty of the little things.  I would love to have more of that influence to balance the lives we live now.

I think I would also enjoy being best friends with Kristin Hannah, author of Firefly Lane, The Nightingale, Night Road (as well as many other books).  Kristin Hannah’s books brought back my joy of reading as an adult.  For a time, I wasn’t reading very much for enjoyment. When my son was young, he had some special needs that took a lot of my attention and when I read, it was books to help me help him more.  When I had the time and desire to read for fun again, I picked up Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah and my passion for reading was ignited again!  Her books are emotional reads that really engage the reader and make them feel for her characters.  I would definitly like to share with Kristin Hannah how much her books impacted my reading and to learn more from her about herself and her inspiration for her books.

It was just too hard to choose only one author who I think might make a good best friend. So, I took a little liberty with this question and shared the three authors that immediately came to mind when I read today’s bonus question.

What author(s) do you think would make a good best friend for you?
