That's a difficult question. I have so many authors I would love to have lunch with. For instance, Eiichiro Oda, if we are talking about manga. Nicholas Sparks, if we are talking about romantic novels. Allan Ahlberg, if we refer to kids' books. Yasuo Uchida, for mystery books. And so on and so on.

I would want to share a cold glass of lemonade with Charlaine Harris.

Stephen King-after having a few drinks I would go home and hide under my bed... in a good way!

Alexander Dumas. He had the most fascinating history and I love the wit he put in his works.

John Grisham... Cause he seems to know everything about being tired of being a law student or a lawyer and I can totally relate.

And then Patricia Cornwell because I think she might be just as captivating as her novels.

I would love have had a drink with Ray Bradbury. His use of metaphor and cadence would make for interesting listening. Tolken a brilliant scholar and creative savant would be fascinating to share a brew with. I could list a host more while I cannot pick any as tops they all are amazing.

Zakes Mda. He's a South African writer and his books are mostly Historical Fiction. He has brought South African history to life for me! Hence I'd definitly have a drink with him, perhaps not a beer, but a drink! :D

I immediately thought Edgar Allan Poe, but after thinking about it more, I would love to sit down with Agatha Christie. Her Miss Marple, Poirot, and other mysteries are so well written and creative that I would love to know where she got her inspiration from and even how she thinks. I imagine her to be fun to be around, but I can, also, imagine her not being much of a people person.

That would be George R. R. Martin, and while at it 'steal' some wisdom.

Shakespeare. Then I can get the chance to ask him what the hell was going on in his head whenever he wrote a piece.
Most times, I fall flat on my face. But never do I remain on the floor; I rise again.

Don't drink alcohol but wouldn't mind a cup of water with any of my favorite authors. I guess if I could speak Japanese more, it'd be Togashi so I could ask about Hunter X Hunter's ending

There are a few, but at the moment, I would definitely have a glass of cabernet with Margaret Atwood.
