My favorite author at the moment is Dan Brown and Danielle steel.
Have only all time favourite author - Leon Uris
Right now I'm just starting some new books. So I have to say Stepen King and Terry Goodkind for the time being.
It has been always Frederick Forsyth
Cassandra Clare - Author of the Mortal Instruments series and the Clockwork trilogy.
To many to name them all, but as a top 3 I'd say Roger Zelazny, Sherzahd, Tolkien. Beyond those, the list is endless.
If life seems jolly rotten
there's something you've forgotten
and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
from Monty Python's "Life of Brian"
At the mmoment it is Khalid Husseini
Not doing enough reading at the moment to have one, but since I'm following (and loving doing so) Neil Gaiman on Twitter, him.
My favorites seldom change. I read Raymond Chandler for the realistic ambiance of Los Angeles in the first part of the 20th century. I read Rex Stout for his New York City tales of mystery and wit. I read Jane Austen for the genteel humor and atmosphere of early 19th century England.
John Irving is probably my favorite all-time with Hotel New Hampshire being my favorite of his books.
I read many books simultaneously, or, a little of each every day.
Read in the past two months I recommend: David McCullough. John Adams.
at the moment Frog Prince and rbo. I can read a Piers Anthony over and over and never get tired of it. Asimov is such a deep thinker. Niven brings new situations and creatures to life... I could go on.
May your parchment be smooth, your ink never blot, and your writing never block.
I have been having a lot of fun recently trying to get through as many Agatha Christie books as I can. She is the lady who invented Miss Jane Marple, Hercule Poirot, and Harley Quinn. They always challenge your inner detective.
As for who is my favorite author, that is almost impossible, but Plato, Nietzsche, Shakespeare's Plays and Sonnets, William Butler Yeats, Tennyson, Hemingway, Dostoyevsky, Gogol, Patanjali, Laozi, Frederich Hoelderlin, Schiller, Dante Alighieri, and many, many others. It really depends on what area I am caught up in at the time.
I have a long list of favorites Tricia Goyer (she writes Amish novels), Beverly Lewis,Joanne Fluke(where I get most of my recipes), James Patterson and John Grisham....(I read alot.... The librarians at my local library know me by name and are always suggesting new authors and books)
