Talent Tuesday: Writer's Who Can't Write?
For Talent Tuesday, I thought we’d take a different tack here, as we’ve been discussing great storytelling.
Most of the authors I’ve featured here I love primarily because they are both awesome writers and storytellers—but I do have a ton of favorites that aren’t considered writing geniuses, yet are known for telling a really great story.
Here are a few of my favorite, talented storytellers:
V.C. Andrews: Yes, I know she passed away, but breathing is not a requirement for this list. She definitely kept me spellbound, even if she wasn’t considered the greatest writer on the planet.
John Saul: Love, love his stories. I have so many of his books, I wonder if you can buy stock in an author? That would be something hey?
James Patterson: Okay, this probably a borderline choice, but he gets enough flack I think it’s fair to include him in this list of not-so-acclaimed writing, but great storytelling. His Maximum Ride series is awesome and I’ve enjoyed many of his books over the years.
What about you? Do you have a favorite talented storyteller that doesn’t get much credit for being a great writer? Who are some of your favorite authors?
