The Spokane County Library District (SCLD) carries a diverse selection of genre fiction that should include something for everybody in Spokane County, Cheney, Airway Heights and other areas they serve.
Many of these books are by female authors. That may have something to do with how many women now write books in the urban fantasy and paranormal romance subgenres, but it probably has more to do with the fact that there are a lot of incredibly talented female authors currently working in every genre. Several of them live in the greater Spokane area or other parts of Wash. state, such as C.J. Cherryh, Patricia Briggs or local mystery author T. Dawn Richard.
Whether people prefer tales of urban vampires, traditional high fantasy, gritty science fiction or whodunits, there are women writing today who create excellent examples of those types of stories. SCLD provides many of them to their patrons on the shelves at their branches or online through their Digital Downloads collections. Anyone with a valid library card and an Internet connection can find really fun books by writers such as Cherie Priest, Devon Monk, or Wen Spencer.
Please view the list to learn more about some books by female authors that are perfect for anyone looking for something a little different from what they normally read. The nine books on this list play with genre conventions in interesting ways and demonstrate the amaziing things a woman can do when she has a "room of one's own.".
