Authors and their books

Links of interest

I provide a few links below as pointers to some award winning books and information on authors.

My author and poet friends and colleagues

One of the great things about being a writer is the friends I’ve made and colleagues I’ve met along the way. I list a few of them below. Take a look at what they are writing!

Books I have read

I like to keep track of the books that I read, and I’ve been doing this since 2009. I’ve included my lists below for 2009-2022. These include fiction (novels, novellas and short story collections) and non-fiction books. Many of these books were borrowed from the Ottawa Public Library (both print and e-books). For 2023 and moving forward, I will keep track of the books I’ve read and those I want to read on Goodreads. Look for me there as JA Secker.
