  10. Great giveaway! I love your monthly giveaway idea, it’s fantastic! To answer your question, my favorite author as a kid was Frank Peretti (christian paranormal suspense author)…I know, it’s weird, but I grew up in a strict christian home, and Peretti had a children’s series, and I read his adult books too…I’m thinking that’s why I like paranormal so much….Then again, I also read Judy Blume….I’ve always liked variety….
