Store favorite and NYT-bestselling author J.T. Ellison will be coming back to Reading Rock on May 28th at 6:30pm. We’ll start out the evening with a short update on her books and writing (she’s written two books with Catherine Coulter since her last visit to Reading Rock), and then she’ll be signing copies of What Lies Behind, her newest book and the fourth in the Dr. Samantha Owens series.
As part of Independent Bookstore Day on May 2, we asked J.T. for a list of books that changed her life. Come to the store that day and see our display of books that helped make J.T. the fabulous writer she is today. Here’s her list (the comments are hers):
Mind Prey by John Sandford, which inspired the Taylor Jackson series
Every Dead Thing by John Connolly inspired my ever-evolving writing style
Running Blind by Lee Child, for the most evocative autopsy scene ever
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, one of the best books ever written (I’ve read it 9 times)
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, one of the finest examples of how to end a series
Here Be Dragons by Sharon Penman, which spurred a lifelong love of Arthurian legends
We cherish our relationship with J.T. Ellison and the other wonderful Tennessee authors who support us. Thanks, J.T.!
