My favourite author is Dr Brian Weiss. I really loved his books. The first book I read of him was only love is real.

I'm a new member here and I would like to add my favorite author is Jojo Moyes. She's really a very interesting writer.

I'm a new member and I'm sort of just browsing around but I had to make a quick comment. I've always just picked books up without really caring about the Authors. I literally carry whatever book I'm reading at the time in my purse and whip it out when I go outside for a cigarette, when one of my friends are using the phone, when I'm bored of a group discussion and the list goes on. Anybody who knows me know me as a little book worm.
So now that I've just became a new member and I was trying to remember all the books I've read which I can remember lots of them just not the Authors. I guess people could say it was a book worth remembering if I can't remember who wrote the book but that's just it. I never even payed attention to that particular detail. As long as the words on the page bring a different reality, even if it's just for a little while then I'm content. Nothing really matters beyond that point.

I just finished reading a book called Writing Down The Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg. This is a great book! I am going to look for more of Natalie's work because of the very Zen effect that this little book has had on me.

Pat Conroy has written some of my favorites. I'm also a big fan of John D. MacDonald and Ed McBain. I'm currently reading the Reacher series by Lee Child.

Some of my favorite reading though, is American history by Michael and Jeff Shaara or Ron Chernow.

Stephen King - always and Dan Brown because I am reading The Lost Symbol at the moment. I would say J.K.Rowling but I am not sure, as I absolutely love Harry Potter books, but anything
else that she wrote did not have the same effect on me.

My the most favorite author is Dan Brown. I love his books so much. I can read these books over and over again. Everytime I feel something powerful when i read those books. That's amazing feeling. I also love the Rhonda Bern. Her books helped me understand what I should do with my life and how I can handle all my problems and reach my dreams. I read hero and now I'm reading magic.

Latest Review: The Reel Sisters by Michelle Cummings

Shirley Jackson is my favorite writer, though she is is terribly underrated. You might even be saying, "who?" but you've probably read her most famous short story, "The Lottery" at some point, and The Haunting of Hill House was made into a TV series recently. She knew her craft, was a prolific writer, and like me, had four children to raise! Like many great writers, she died much too young.

I was going to say C.S Lewis, but if we can choose several then I'd also like to add Tolkien, Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

If there's one thing in particular in my opinion that the English do well, it's writing. Every one these people has a style and a magic all their own. The world wouldn't be the same without them.
