Who I'm Stalking Lately

NOTE: I do not, in any way, "stalk" people in the creepy sense of the word. Having been on the receiving end of some of this kind of behavior in the past, I would never, ever do anything to violate someone's privacy or sense of self. That's just sucky.
Now, disclaimer aside, here's a writer who has really caught my attention- and even more importantly, my imagination- lately.

Abbi Glines
Not only is she a bestselling author of both paranormal and contemporary YA and New Adult, she was recently picked up by Simon and Schuster for her "Vincent Boys" series. I always want to shout when this happens to an Indie author, let alone one as good as Abbi.
Plus her books are just wonderful. I'm still working my way through her catalog, so I haven't read everything, but what really got me stalking her is the fact that she sets a lot of her books in the fictional town of Sea Breeze, Alabama. I currently reside in South Alabama, and am always thrilled to discover a fellow regional author. Plus I used to live in Gulf Shores, just around the bay from Fairhope, which is (I'm almost dead certain) the original setting for Sea Breeze. I also have a Southern town in which I set almost all my books, and the characters interconnect across books, too. So to find another author from the same region who does this too is just awesomesauce.
