My favorite author probably has to be Agatha Christie. I read And Then There Were None about two years back and thought it was just a perfect mystery novel. Of course, seeing as how I've only read two of her novels, I really need to read more of her.

My other favorite author is Alexandre Dumas of The Three Musketeers fame.

And, in the urban fantasy/fantasy category, I have to go with Jim Butcher. He writes such fascinating characters and his two series (The Dresden Files and Codex Alera) are so different from one another that I sort of find it awesome that he wrote both, because in terms of the way they are written, it's like night and day. (Not saying one is badly written over the other, though.)

I also like S.E. Hinton, J.D. Salinger, and I just love Ursula K. Le Guin. The Lathe of Heaven is such an awesome sci-fi book, and her fantasy series, the Earthsea series, is also awesome. (Apparently in the first book of the series the main character, Ged, goes to a school for wizards, and the book was written in 1968.) I really recommend her to anyone who likes fantasy or sci-fi.

[font=Comic Sans Ms][size=2][color=#000000]My favorite author, aside from JK Rowlings, would have to be James Rollins and Matthew Reilly. Their writting styles are very common, so they are my favorites. They've written books such as "Amazonia" and "Black Order".

Next would have to be DJ Machale. He's the author of the "Pendragon" series. They are great books!

My favorite would have to Jane Austen.

I just love the plots, characters, and human touch that makes you read her books over and over again. Plus, she has a sense of humor that I find down-right, good.

She brings characters from a deeper side of social classes. She gives light on certain things.

Her quotes and passages are almost as famous as Shakespeare's.

Plus, her books are made into movies all the time. Her idea of love and relationships are ones produce much in every movie...almost like Shakespeare too smile.gif

I love Dick Francis. All his books are wonderful mysteries with horses somewhere in the story. Whether they are central to the plot or a background incidental figure.

Twilight = hundreds of pages of googly eyes and unrealistic stalkerish controlling romance and fainting and head-crushing-talk.

Garth Nix. He wrote the Abhorsen series amongst others. I love the way that he develops characters and plot and at the end of one book will suddenly make you realise that a throw away comment at the beginning is the key to the whole thing. Very clever!

Aside from J.K. Rowling, my favorite authors are Christopher Paolini, Victor Hugo, and, from the little I've read of his works, Eoin Colfer.

Other than JK Rowling, it'd have to be JR Tolkien. I read alot, so it's very hard for me too choose. I like Tamora Pierce, Stephen King, and Christopher Paolini to name a few other of my favorites.

Phillippa Gregory is a good author. She wrote stories like the other bolyen girl and the queen's fool.

I like Phillip Pullman (the His Dark Materials trilogy), Christopher Paolini (Eragon/Eldest), Lisi Harrison (the Clique series), and Stephen King. I do like J.K. Rowling too =]

Hm, Shakespeare is also pretty good. Sure he's a bit hard to understand, but it's fun all the same!

My favorite author is Neil Gaiman.

His book Stardust was recently made into a movie, but the book is much better.
