  6. It's a toss-up between three. Orson Scott Card, Dave Farland, and Diann Thornley Read. That's for first. Donna King Weaver comes in an extremely close second. I love all kinds of LDS writers. I think it's spectacular how much creative talent we have. You GO, Ladies!

  13. That is a tough question. I think it would be Courting Miss Lancaster by Sarah Eden, or Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson, but then again, My Loving Vigil Keeping by Carla Kelly has left a lasting impression. :)

  21. I had no idea so many authors I loved were LDS! I was going to say Kiersten White until I saw Rick Riordan on the Deseret site, and I did a search online, but couldn't find out if he was or wasn't LDS. But if he is, definitely, him!
