I have lots of authors I really like, but I think my favourite would have to be Neil Gaiman. It's not just that I love his work, but that I also think he's a really inspirational person. In fact, he's one of the reasons I started writing myself, and 30,000 words of a children's book later, I'm pretty glad I went to see him at the Edinburgh Book Festival as I wouldn't have got this far without that beginning inspiration.
My favourite author is Mitch Albom. The first book of his I read was 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven'. I saw it on the table of Waterstones and the title intrigued me. The blurb interested me even more, so I bought it and read it within a few hours. Since then I have read all his books.
My favourite author is Jeffrey Archer. All his books have witty plots and its tough to keep the book down unless you have gone to the last page.
Back in college days I used to enjoy Sidney Sheldon books. His trademark female protagonists are certainly inspiring.
It is so hard to pick the most favourite author. But if I had to name one author whose creations will remain etched in my memory forever, I will say Paulo Coelho. The Alchemist is one of the best books of all times. Also, loved Eleven Minutes.
You & me Finy!! I LOVE James Paterson's books. I pick mine up from op-shops! I have a pile of about 8 of them to read, which I would have read by now, if I didn't spend all my time at home on my laptop!!!
