Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Authors I Discovered in 2021


I’m sure by now even its fans are tired of me going on and on about how great Dean Street Press’ Furrowed Middlebrow series is, but honestly? It’s that good. That is where I discovered the following authors: (And, no they do not pay me anything!)

My reviews are linked at the end of the post.

My lazy attention span and my need for light entertainment to take my mind off unemployment led me to some fun new women’s fiction writers

And, a few others cropped up this year as well.

  1. Dean Street Press publish such an interesting selection of books! I enjoyed A Chelsea Concerto too, but haven’t read anything by Molly Clavering or Dorothy Evelyn Smith yet.

  2. Your strategy has worked – I have seen you mention Dean Street many times now so just had to go and look at their site to find out what they’re all about. I don’t know many of those authors but recognised DE Stevenson (though never read her books) who sounds interesting. Making a note of that for the future…

  3. Ahhh so many of your books are ones I want to read, too! The Matzah Ball looks like so much fun and I tried so hard to get to Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop last month, but just couldn’t before Christmas! Hopefully this year. Off to look up some of your others! Thanks for participating in TTT!
