Favorite writer discovered in 2011

Christa Faust -- My favorite writer discovery of 2011, Christa Faust. She's not a "new" writer, she's a veteran, but new to me this year. She writes contemporary hard boiled fiction with female protagonists. And she rocks it. Her work has a pulp sensibility that is fun as hell, and at the same time avoids cliche and gives us very human characters.

I read in this order:
Money Shot
Choke Hold

 I'm proud to say that the county library now has both Money Shot and Hoodtown, thanks to requests from yours truly. Kudos Bernalillo County Library for being so responsive to patron requests.
