Author Spotlight - Shirley Kiger Connelly talks about her favorite authors

As an inspirational author one would think I would have a favorite inspirational author first. Well, let me see. There are so many out there that are so good. Of course, I lean toward the historical writers first. So, let me toss out Francine Rivers name. She writes so extremely well, because she chooses very difficult subjects, and once she has them down on paper and in a book, she makes it come out so easy. That takes talent. She is very very good at what she does. But I also love the writing of Lynn Austin. There are so many more, I can’t give justice really to any one person. On the secular side, I would have to say Julia Quinn. I absolutely love the way she can write an historical book with such humor in a way that keeps you turning the pages. And most of the time, she doesn’t get too steamy for me. Years ago, it was always Kathleen E Woodiwiss. What a blessing it was to learn from her gift of writing back in the 80s and 90s.


  1. I'll never forget Kathleen E Woodiwiss. She was the original romance lady. Nice to see your spotlight Shirley. Betty

  2. Thanks, Betty. It's always nice to hear from you.

  3. Shirley,

    Strange coincidence....I just finished reading The Flame and the Flower for about the 100th time! Every once and a while I go back and read her books. She broke so many writing rules, yet as a reader I just flow right along and still enjoy every word, every scene!
