Although I love to write fiction, you’ll find in this list an eclectic assortment of fiction and non-fiction, including history, religion, philosophy, and science.  Much like my creative process, the books are presented in no particular order.  Where I care to, I’ve included a short summary of the book, some with links to my review of the book.
