Let's hear it for the girls

 As anyone who grew up with Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Maya Angelou or Jane Austen can tell you, women authors rock. They've written some of the best-known and best-selling memoirs, poetry, novels and plays in the world.

So this week, I want to hear about the women who penned the words that expand your mind and define your world.

I'll go first: I've got to send a little bit of love to Ann M. Martin, who made babysitting look oh-so-cool. Anne Rice kept me up way too late, wishing Lestat would be my new best friend. Katharine Graham inspired me to journalistic greatness. And finally, Josephine Tey, (AKA Elizabeth Mackintosh) who wrote my favorite mystery novel, The Daughter of Time.
