My final reflection after completing the A to Z April 2015 Challenge has two parts:
1) My theme was Author Spotlight, so the first part is a review of the 26 wonderful authors I have featured in my A-Z Challenge.
2) The second is an overview of all the blogs I visited during the challenge and why I enjoyed my visit.
My featured authors made me think about love, good and evil, forgiveness and vengeance, relationships, our history, our future. They also made me laugh and cry, feel angry and happy. They frightened me, shocked me, and entertained me, but overall they made me think about myself, because every book I read teaches me something about myself as person and as a writer.
Here are all the featured authors and their blogs. They have all written wonderful books which have inspired me in the last six months. Check them out!
