So, the 3rd question is “Who is your favourite chick lit author and how has her/his works inspire your writing style?”
1) Author #1 : Tetasheri Whitney
Maya Angelou is my favorite chick lit author. One of her very early books sheds emotion on the realities of sexual molestation of young black girls in the afro centric community.
2) Author #2: Beth Merlin
I love Emily Giffin and Sophie Kinsella. Their books have great dialogue, characters and settings.
3) Author #3: Tracy Orchard
Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding was the first book in this genre that I read, and therefore it made the biggest impression on what I would call chick-lit writing. I love the ‘real’ character that emphasizes all the negatives about a woman whilst at the same time endearing her to readers so they can root for her happiness.
4) Author #4: Jae El Foster
Jennifer Patricia O’Keeffe, and this is why I encouraged her to become a publisher author. She finds the humor in life in ways that many of us overlook, and she’s able to utilize that joy of life and love in her stories like no one I’ve ever read.
5) Author #5: Adesanya
I would say I’ve liked one I JUST discovered. Jennifer Patrica O’Keeffe
6) Author #6: Amy Spitzfaden
Sophie Kinsella! I started reading her when I was so young that her voice has shaped all of my writing. I love the real issues she addresses is such a humorous way with the assurance that it will all be okay in the end. It’s a hard balance to strike but she accomplishes it every time.
7) Author #7: Summer Dowell
I love so many, but Sophie Kinsella’s dry humor always get me laughing! I hope I can do the same thing for my readers
8) Author #8: Jennifer Patricia O’Keeffe
I am wide-read and inspired by many. I’d hate to have to pick and choose a favorite.
9) Author #9: Sasha Lane
Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk are my two favourite Chick Lit authors. Sophie Kinsella’s ‘Shopaholic’ series is probably the series that got me addicted to Chick Lit. Lindsey Kelk grew up near to where I did so I have followed her books from day one. I love the fact that her characters are so easy to like and you feel like they’re your friend by the end of the book. Both authors create characters that you can love from the first chapter, and that feel entirely real.
10) Author #10: Kristin Billerbeck
Marian Keyes. She never shies away from dark topics and can make me laugh about anything. That’s how I want to write. I want people to deal in truth, but know there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel.
11) Author #11: Phaedra Patrick
I don’t have a favourite author in this genre. I enjoy all different types of books by lots of different authors. I don’t tend to follow any singular writer.
12) Author #12: Katie Joyce Cross
Oh, I do love a good Sophie Kinsella novel!
