Authors Like Nicholas Sparks


Every writer has their own style. When you pick up a Nicholas Sparks novel, you know what to expect; a romantic and bittersweet story about ordinary people enduring tragedy.

The problem is, no writer can keep up with the demands of his or her readers. It simply takes too long to write a novel and see it through the publishing process. This is why we have devoted an entire website to authors like Nicholas Sparks. That is to say, authors whose novels we think you will enjoy if you enjoy the work of Nicholas Sparks.

The authors are listed in the tab at the top of this page. They are also listed below this article. As you can see, the list of authors like Nicholas Sparks is rather lengthy. Of course they do not all write alike. They each have their own style. However, like Sparks, these author’s novels are solid dramas with a strong romantic theme without being category romances.

There are three authors we would like to spotlight. We begin with Erich Segal, the author of Love Story. First published in 1970. Once you read it, you’ll see striking similarities to the novels by Nicholas Sparks. In fact, one could reasonably conclude Love Story was an inspiration for Sparks books.

Another author worth mentioning is James Patterson. Mr. Patterson is an industry all to himself. He’s best known for writing thrillers and mysteries, but he has also produced two novels we believe Nicholas Sparks fans will enjoy, Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas and Sam’s Letters To Jennifer.

Finally, before we head into the list of authors like Nicholas Sparks, we’d like to introduce an emerging novelist who is surely worth your consideration. Gary Cameron Horton, also known as Gary C. Horton, is the author of Some Glad Morning, a deeply, heartfelt love story set in the Old South. This tender story brought our staff to tears, but left us each feeling hopeful and inspired. Mr. Horton is a rare novelist with impeccable talent.
