For some reason my answer last time was removed, so I am going to answer again…

It would still be James Joyce, but I think it would certainly end up being more than one beer and turn into a bit of a session.

He could dissect my mind as we toured Dublin’s watering holes.

G. R. R. Martin. I want know what he thinks about the GOT series, and whether he intends to finish the books. I really wanna know the real end.
But maybe I just wanna meet the guy who made up Tuf.

I would do everything to ever meet Jane Austen and have a beer or wine or tea with her. What a fascinating woman and author. I want to know what she had planned for Sandition or The Watsons. Also really wonder about the characters after their story inthe books ended.

Neil Gaiman, absolutely. He has such a personality, I would spend hours with him.

I'd love to have a beer with Patricia Cornwell and chat with her about how she came up with so many stories! I don't think I'll ever be able to read them all

I would love to have a drink or two with him (no beer though, I'm underage :wink: ) because I have a few questions I would like to ask him about Hannibal Lecter, regarding his personal character traits and history that isn't covered in the books.

For example, my little sister, who is also a fan of his books, and I always get into debates about how Hannibal would react to hearing that his life story was going to be made into a musical. She thinks he would be angry, but I actually think he would be fairly amused by the idea. So, that's something I would probably ask Mr. Harris first: "Could you tell me how Dr. Lecter would feel about his life story being made into a musical?" Haha, very stupid, I know, but I'm afraid it is an inside joke that my sister and I are actually curious about.
I think he'd be staging a breakout to go see it on opening night! He seemed to enjoy the attention he got

I would love to have lunch with Max Lucado. I would love to ask him questions about his books. He has written so many books, and I enjoy them so much!
