    I know I'm different from most people here, but I don't really choose favorite authors

    At this moment, S. J. Rozan, I love her Bill Smith and Lydia Chin series! (But, I am also pretty crazy about Lisa Lutz and her Spellman Files series too.)
    So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.

    I just heard about her for the first time this week. I think one of her books is on our new list for our book club.
