Comparing books/writing styles

I’m applying to participate in the Sharp Writer Boot Camp with editor Shannon Marchese while I'm attending the CCWC this May, and one of the application questions has me a bit stumped. If you've read my books I'd appreciate any help you can give me. I need your advice.

The question is, “List two published authors, either general or Christian market, that you believe compare to your writing style or content in some way.” The answer is supposed to be phrased similar to, “I believe my novels will appeal to readers of XX because . . .”

Anyone want to toss out a novelist’s name whose work compares to my novels? Anyone, anyone . . . Bueller?

Mmmm....Megan I will have to give this some thought, but my first response was Lori Wick, her contemporary novels. But I will think some more about it.

I am thinking of several: Angela Hunt (her Fairlawn series) and Patti Hill.
I think I would also add Neta Jackson. Her Yada, Yada prayer group series is similiar in that it deals with life issues straight up, with humor added in.
