Child abuse, elder abuse, animal abuse  ... if there are graphic descriptions, I tend to not read

I knew the name ... looked into his stuff on amazon. He's prolific, I'll say that!  I don't think I've ever read anything of his.....  why do you not  like his books?

I DO like him, but you said you don't like books about child abuse, which is what his novels are about.

Ahhh ,, gotcha.  I don't like when the abuse is so graphic, written in such detail.

I hate romance novels.  I'm not uncomfortable with them, they just bore the crap out of me.

I only read strictly romance for two  authors... one lives a few blocks from me ... the other lives in Phoenix.  I do it as they request, otherwise I seldom read romance.

But do you enjoy it?  Are you friends with the author that lives near you?

I wouldn't say we're exactly friends .... but arizona features in most of her books, so she always asks if I'll read and try to grab any mistakes in the printing.  Their books are okay ... some more than others .. but I really, really prefer crime fiction  :-)
