Unapologetic_Bookaholic | 1986 comments Did someone post this link already? For finding Q,X,Y, Z authors. I found a couple Asian authors that sounded interesting.

ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) | 0 comments For X I had someone at the library recommend an author to me whose middle initial is X. The library older mystery books have E. X. Ferrars on the cover. On Goodreads they come up as Elisabeth Ferrars. I figured for "X", this was close enough. lol (I've already searched the entire library's online catalog for authors whose last name starts with X, they have very very little. Malcom X was about the only other choice.)
