Alright, this might be bit basic, but my favourite author is Brandon Sanderson. I am yet to be disappointed by anything he wrote. He writes fast. His worlds and magic are always something new. There is always plenty of surprising twists and revelations in his books. Not to mention strong character work.

My favorite author is a tie between S.E. Hinton and Nicholas Sparks. They are both wonderful righters. Nicholas Sparks has a way of writing about love that no other writer I has been able to. Such as in his book The Guardian, there was this former love mixed with a new love that gives you a feeling of such comfort.

I really like MK Baker. He just put his new audiobook "gathering wise". On audible and on amazon! I really enjoyed the multiple different voices and its such a cute story! I also enjoyed the fact there were multiple voices and not just the one droning on!

It's so hard to pick just one. I'd say Ralph Waldo Emerson is my favorite nonfiction, Edgar Allan Poe is my favorite poet, and Jane Austen is my favorite novelist.

Right now, my favorite is Shane Silvers. I'm constantly waiting for his next book.

Favorites during my lifetime have been Frank Herbert (I've read every one of his books), Terry Brooks, and Douglas Adams.

I have a new favorite author! I just read the first in a series called Inspector Mage, Blood on the Floor, by Aleese Hughes. She did such a wonderful job creating the Dagirus world and all her characters that I can hardly wait to read the next book in this series and other books she has written!

Thomas Bernhard, an Austrian writer, because he writes about things other people might think but dare not say. His memoir “Gathering Evidence” is a masterwork. When I first read him only two of his books were translated, now almost all of them are.

My favourite fiction author is Khaled Hosseni. Nonfiction is Malcolm Gladwell. Reading the book Outliers struck a connection between me and Gladwell such that I went on to read all his books and follow his podcasts
