I thought that it would be fun to start a new category on my blog called Author Corner where once a week I’ll pick an author at random and dedicate a blog post to them. I’ll include some facts about them and the books they’ve written and anything else interesting that I find out. If you want to recommend authors for Author Corner, please feel free! 🙂 For my first Author Corner I went with my favorite author – Ellen Hopkins.
