There's nothing like reading a debut novel and loving it. But I think there's also something to be said for authors with longevity, who have written at least three books and hopefully won't be going anywhere any time soon. So this is a shout-out to all my favorite authors who clearly love writing.
1. Ally Carter (15 books)
Between three series and a standalone, I've read and liked a lot of Ally Carter books.
2. Maud Hart Lovelace (12 books)
Well, we won't be getting any more books from Maud, but the Betsy-Tacy series is wonderful, and I love Carney's House Party and Emily of Deep Valley.
3. Kasie West (10 books)
I even wrote a post ranking her books back in August. And we're getting two more in 2019!
4. Heather Vogel Frederick (10 books)
After all, The Mother-Daughter Book Club series is definitely one of the reasons I love YA so much.
5. Shannon Hale (8 books)
So much love for Princess Academy.
6. Jennifer Lynn Barnes (8 books)
No one writes a mystery/thriller like Jenn.
7. Morgan Matson (5 books; 9 if we count the Katie Finn titles I've read)
Her books are so, so, so good.
8. Megan Whalen Turner (5 books)
She's a recent love, but The Queen's Thief series is so very good.
9. Emery Lord (4 books)
Also, I needed The Map From Here to There, like, yesterday.
10. Emma Mills (4 books)
Ok, so Famous in a Small Town isn't published yet, but I've read it, and I can't get enough of her writing.
11. Stacey Lee (3 books)
Her historical fiction is my favorite.
Ugh, I hate how white this list is. I promise I do enjoy authors of color's books but they tend to be debuts or only have two books out. I'd love to redo this list in a few years and see what the ranks are like then!
