This time, I have chosen one of my favorite authors, Debbie Macomber.
Debbie Macomber is an American best selling novelist. Debbie Macomber has over 170 million copies of her books in print worldwide, but she is best known for her Cedar Cove Series. The acclaimed series, as you may know if you're a fan, has been made into a television series and is featured on the Hallmark Channel. Cedar Cove will be starting its third season in July. I had just seen some previews for the first season of the show right after starting the first book in the series. Right away, I knew I wanted to read all the books in the Cedar Cove Series before watching the tv show that was going to be based on the books. Just like in movies, I always believe that the book is better than the movie/tv show. A few of her other novels have also been made into movies - Mrs. Miracle, Call Me Mrs. Miracle, Trading Christmas and Mr. Miracle.
"In her novels, Macomber brings to life compelling relationships that embrace family and enduring friendships, uplifting her readers with stories of connection and hope." (www.http://debbiemacomber.com/about-debbie/debbies-bio)I wanted to copy that above sentence from Debbie's page because it tells exactly why I love her books and why she easily became one of my favorite authors and why she's one of the best authors out there today. To be honest, I think Debbie Macomber writes about real situations in a true sense in fictional way. Her characters can be pretty close to what real people go through and experience throughout their lifetime. There's not many authors who can make realistic characters go through realistic situations and feelings, as well as do it in a way that is captivating to readers.
In addition to writing, Debbie also happens to own a tea room and a yarn shop in Port Orchard, Washington. She lives with her husband, Wayne, there and spends winter in Florida. She has a passion for knitting and is a spokesperson for World Vision's Knit for Kids charity initiative.
