I had a tough time choosing these ladies for sure.  My big criteria was that I had to love everything that I had read by them.  There were a few authors that were so close to making the cut, but I had lukewarm feelings on one of their books so I cut them.  What do you guys think, have any recommendations based on my list?  Let me know in the comments!
