You have a great list of writers there and I'll second those and add 2 more.
Faye Kellerman (Jonathan's wife)
Michael Slade (he is a Canadian author who writes fiction about serial killers that happen in US and Canada where both sides of the border are involved in solving the crime)
Some of my favorite authors are:
Catherine Coulter ( Dylan Savich FBI mysteries)
Earlene Fowler( Benni Harper Mysteries)
Joanne Fluke ( Hannah Swenson cooking mysteries)
Arlene Sachitano( Quilt as desired)
Lee Childs
Iris Johansen ( Eve Duncan series)

I am sure I will think of more but there is a start. Happy reading... Regards, Anna
Here's a few more.

Monica Ferris - murder mysteries with a needlework twist
Laura Childs - the Tea shop mysteries set in north Carolina or Virginia; somewhere there. And
Her scrapbooking series (also murder mysteries) set in New Orleans.
G.A. McKevett - Murder mysteries with a sweet tooth.
Hazel Holt
Joy Fielding
Joel C. Rosenberg
and if you like to read Christian Fiction, nearly anything by T. Davis Bunn is a good read. He writes good stories that are thought provoking withoug being preachy.
My list thus far:
Marie Bostwick--Quilting Friendship
Clare O'Donohue--Quilting Mystery
Terry Thayer--Quilting Mystery
Judith Pella--Christian Historical Fiction
Emilie Richards--Shenandoah Quilting Fiction
Janette Oake--Alberta Author, Inspirational, early Canadian West Settlement
Deanne Gist--Christian Historical Fiction (tends to get a little preachy)
Judith Miller--Christian Historical Fiction
Tracie Pederson--Christian Historical Fiction
Lauraine Snelling--Christian Historical Fiction, the Dakotas Norweigian settlement
Miriam Toews--Manitoba Author, fiction, with exception of "Swing Low", a very poignant diary type book of her father's struggle with mental illness
Thanks for starting this Shannon. I am an avid reader and always looking for new authors. I just bought a Sony Reader so that I can access my library when we are traveling. Love it so far!

Here are a few of my favourite authors. I have more but I didn't want to overload the list. :)

Maeve Binchy
Sammi Carter - similar books to Joanne Fluke
Lisa Gardner - mysteries
John Grisham
Kate Jacobs - Friday Night Knitting Club series
Diane Mott Davidson - again similar style to Joanne Fluke
James Patterson
J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) - In Death series
Nicholas Sparks
Nancy Thayer - The Hotflash Club series
what is the hotflash club series? sounds like I could relate LOL....I love Maeve too. I usually cry in her books :o) thanks for sharing!
Shannon, they are great books. Here is Nancy Thayer's website.

Just a couple of more authors I thought of.

Haywood Smith --- The Red Hat club books captures the characters of us "somewhat more mature" people very well.
P T Deutermann Action Thrillers very good author.
Keep it comin, folks!! I will def be checking out some of these authors....CANADIAN QUILTERS ROCK!
i just finished reading 'the long stretch' and 'the bishops man' by none other than lynden mcintyre. very good esp the bishops man. my fav author of all time is stephen king (i've read all of his stuff mutiple times) but will read just about anything. i'm on a canadian author/human interest kick lately.
lori lansens- the wife's tale, the girls, rush home road - VERY GOOD BOOKS!!!
forgot the author - A STUDENT OF WEATHER
and a totally unrelated author, more in line with suspense, is james lee burke. just read 'tin roof blowdown' it was pretty good.
whoops! should be 'linden macintyre'
I am a big fan of Erica Spindler and many of the authors listed here - A book that I loved is called "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett- It is a powerful story and very well done. I also just read called " The Reliable Wife"which was pretty interesting. I am currently reading " Three Cups of Tea" which is non fiction about a guy named Greg Mortenson who was a climber that set up schools in Pakistan. It is a pretty amazing story about the efforts that one person made to help change children's lives.
I also read a book called " The Knitting Circle" by Ann Hood which I enjoyed very much.
Happy reading Ladies....
