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.
I love Gaiman too. American Gods and Anansi Boys were a lot of fun but I think I like his short stories best.
Terry Pratchett.
I don't have particular pseudonym and email address for nothing.

I really enjoy Marian Keyes women's literature novels, and Bill Bryson's non-fiction travel stories.
I really enjoy reading anything written by Pam Jenoff. Historical romance. Too good!

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.
Now I'm intrigued.

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.
J,K.Rowling! I grew up on Harry Potter, and love her new books!
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.
Nelson DeMille. I have read all of his books more than once - all great reads!
Loved 'The General's Daughter'! Film was ok, too!

Bill Bryson is a genius. He can make an incredibly complex or mundane subject the most entertaining thing you've ever read.
I always enjoy Alexander McCall Smith - in particular 'No 1 Ladies Detective Agency'Series and 'Corduroy Mansions.' Another favourite is Kerry Greenwood.- Miss Fisher Mysteries
I enjoy the Miss Fisher books too. Ther isn't much set in Australia during that period.
I like James Patterson

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!!!
