Author Spotlight: Courtney Miller Santo


Courtney- who are some of your favorite authors?

Right now, I am in love with Laura Lippman. She knows how to tell a great story and also manages to raise questions about identity and motherhood that always leave me a bit shaken.

What is a book (or books!) that you will always make room for on your bookshelf?

L.M. Montgomery is most known for her Anne of Green Gables series, but I actually am in love with a trilogy she did about a girl named Emily. I find that even today, I’ll dip back into those three books to give me a real sense of why I love books so much.

Do you have any #literaryconfessions? 

Even though I live in the cradle of William Faulkner land, I don’t particular enjoy his work. Every year or so, I’ll try to pick up another one of his books, but they don’t capture my attention in the way I think they are supposed to. I think of it as a classic, “it’s not you, it’s me,” relationship.

Do you have a #literarycrush? 

I’m still in love with Almanzo Wilder from the Little House books. I mean with a nickname like Manly, how can you go wrong?

If you could  be best friends with a character in a book, who would you pick? And why?

Bridget Jones! She takes herself too seriously in exactly the sort of way that lends itself to epic friendships.
