    Some authors have surprised me on more than one occasion because of how young they are. One example is Christopher Paolini. When I first sat down to read Eragon, I found it hard to believe that Paolini, the author, was a teenager when he wrote the book.

    Laurell is the first author to surprise me because of how old she is. For some reason, I associate YA and paranormal romance with younger authors in their 20s and 30s.

    The assumption is ridiculous because it suggests that age determines the author’s genre of choice. Then again, maybe Laurell was much younger when she began her career. This list shows that the first Anita Blake novel came out in 1993.

    I don’t know if she’s still writing this series. I’ve only read the first five novels. It doesn’t really matter. But her age stuck with me.

    I am a huge fan of Hamilton’s “Merry Gentry” series, and I have never been able to get into the “Anita Blake” series for some reason. I feel like I’ll need to try them again sometime down the road, but in the meantime I have tirelessly shoved the Merry books in my friends’ faces insisting that they read them. She does pantheons and people SO WELL in this series! So many characters that you love to hate, hate to love, and JUST HAVE to love!
